Apple Blueberry Pie (serves 8)

Apple Blueberry Pie
When blueberries are in season and at an affordable price, splurge on a berry pie! Add sliced apples to reduce the need for additional sugar and to provide pectin for setting. The crust is gluten-free, so it is a bit more fragile than pastry normally is, but if you roll it between sheets of wax paper, it is easy enough to transfer to the pie pan. Bake the pie for as long a it takes for the blueberries to burst and for the crust to brown without scorching — 30-45 minutes depending upon your oven. Let it cool to very nearly room temperature before serving. ~ Glyn

Crust:
1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour
1 cup oat flour
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 tsp salt

1 tbsp brown sugar – (packed)

2 cups thinly sliced apples
4 cups fresh blueberries
