Amounts seemed too much of vanilla & salt for a pie. I reduced to 1 1/2t & 1/8t. I combined the flour & sugar with the berries. The sour cream, egg & vanilla; then added it to the berry bowl. I used frozen berries & baked 40 minutes before adding the topping; then, 20 since 15 didn't do much. After 20, still no "crunch," but I'll get over it. Nut allergy so no nuts. Warm taste test: Yum. 'Thought it might be blueberry yogurtish, but it's more blueberry CHEESECAKEISH! Oh, my! :) Cinnamon isn't noticeable. It's enough to enhance flavor without your knowing what it is. 'May try with more since cinnamon's good for ya, but I wouldn't go for a cinnamony blueberry pie myself. If I make again with the topping, I'll go for 30 then 30; but, honestly, it's good enough to not have the extra sugar topping. If the berries are juicy, I don't know that it'd crisp anyway. No, not the prettiest pie, but make pie crust leaves or a regular top crust! PS "What cinnamon?" you ask? Sorry, my usual pie, I add half t. 'Don't remember if I added that or less. :? :( Christmas 2013: The topping isn't necessasary. It doesn't improve the flavor or look. It's an unattractive, but delicious pie. I'm thinking of renaming it "Pie with a good personality!" :D
