Coffee Blueberry Pie

Coffee Blueberry Pie / Coffee Pie

Most people do not even know how to breathe without inhaling their first cup of coffee and for a non drinker like myself, the initial reaction of most is to say “oh you’re a tea drinker”, with my usual response of no surprising them. Yet, here we are with another coffee recipe because it is a great flavor.

And sometimes an idea can come out of nowhere. Walking up the escalator towards works can make you think of what to have for dinner. Being stuck in traffic can make you think about chocolate and raspberries and waking up can make you think about coffee and blueberries.

After walking fifteen miles yesterday, I’m convinced I could have eaten half of this to no consequences, though today likely won’t involve as much strolling through these concrete streets, but there is still a lot to be seen so who knows.

Friends, the brain doesn’t always have a clear path to the way it works but I’m grateful for the idea for this pie because how often would berries and coffee be smushed together in life. This pie is best made within an hour of serving or refrigerated prior to serving.

Enjoy.
