Crumbly Streusel-Y Blueberry Pie

“i don't remember what prompted me but i decided that i needed to make a bluberry pie. oddly enough, none of my cookbooks had a recipe so i turned to my friend the internet. after finding countless "thaw frozen dough, add canned pie filling" recipes i decided to try and put together one of my own. you will need 1 9-inch pie crust. i like to use one i found here, #20984 flaky pie crust posted by teresa m. it's easy to make and use but, if you have your own favorite, go ahead and use it. though i haven't tried it yet, i have a feeling this would be just as good with any other berry, cherry, apple, or even peach filling. one more note - prep time is estimated and depends mainly on your choice of crust.”
