Summer fruits are in abundance at grocery stores and produce stands all around town. And because summer often amounts to the only excuse needed to bring people together for good times and good eats, we thought we'd take a great summer fruit that's nearing the end of its season and make a great summer treat that's simple, and sure to wow your fellow revelers. Recently we took full advantage of a couple of pints of fresh summer blueberries we had and turned them into a dessert that had our guests ooh-ing and ahh-ing to a degree that was almost obscene. And now that the heat outside has cooled off significantly, it's safe to turn those ovens on inside, so no more excuses about it being too hot to bake! We promise you it's worth if if you brave this recipe for The Best Blueberry Pie Ever. Even if you've never made a pie before, you should make this one -- it's a no brainer that's sure to score raves.

Our secret cheat: Buy a premade crust -- the roll-out kind from the refrigerated section. Oh, and be sure to have some whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on hand to pile on top of your generous slices!
