I would have never thought to combine blueberries and nectarines but for this week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe they worked so well together. It's not often I'm pleasantly surprised.
Good thing this pie was a snap to make because I've been engrossed in the Summer Olympics on tv as I'm sure the rest of you are. I used blueberries I froze a few months ago and also white nectarines. To ensure that the filling thickened and set properly I added a tablespoon of finely ground minute tapioca. It did the trick beautifully and my pie sliced like a dream.
Everyone knows the best part of a pie is going to be the crust and this version was flaky and buttery. My only issue was that it was almost too tender to roll out, but I could think of worse things to happen.
