2 tablesp. flour
1 1/2 tsp lemon juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry.

Combine the blueberries, flour, lemon juice, sugar, nutmeg, salt, lemon rind, and cinnamon together; place into the pastry lined pie plate.  Dot with the butter.  Place second pastry sheet over the blueberry mixture.  Turn top pastry under bottom pastry and flute to seal edges.  Cut some air vents in the top crust.
