My Mom's Most Amazing Blueberry Cream Pie

Zoey is a big talker. She often talks so much during meals that we have to tell her to stop talking and put food in her mouth. Then Demetri and I have to have a rapid and forced conversation that will not allow to get a word in edgewise. You know, so she will chew and swallow. When my mom served this pie Zoey was completely silent. She ate her entire piece without saying anything. After her last swallow, she smacked her lips and said, "Gramme, this is the best pie you made in your life!" And I have to agree.
