Blueberry Rhubarb Pie

This is a first for me. I've made too many strawberry rhubarb pies to count but a blueberry rhubarb pie?  My CSA gave me rhubarb and I had some nice blueberries and I wanted to bake a pie so why not?
 I mixed 2 pints of blueberries with about 8 stalks of diced rhubarb, 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/3 cup of flour.  I also squeezed in the juice of 1 lemon.

 I made my cream cheese pie crust:
Oops, I forgot a couple pics.  Mound the filling in the crust and place the other piece on top.  Roll or crimp the edges.

Brush the crust with cream or milk.

Sprinkle liberally with cinnamon sugar. Bake it at 350 degrees for an hour or more. 

The pie is done when you can see the liquid inside of it bubbling.  I've baked so many pies I can tell when they are done by the smell.  I never tasted these but I was told it was the best pie anyone had ever eaten.  So, I guess blueberries and rhubarb are a good combination.
