Yummy Blueberry Pie Recipe

For those of you who like blueberry pie, this recipe is a keeper.

Simple, straight forward ingredients make this blueberry pie yummy and easy to make. I am NOT a baker, and the thought of making a pie used to intimidate me and cause anxiety.

Pie making doesn’t scare me anymore, and it shouldn’t you either.

The beauty of making your OWN homemade pie, is that you are not getting any HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP that comes in store bought pies, or most store bought canned pie filling.

Here is the recipe for a blueberry pie filling. You can alter the recipe and make a delicious mixed berry pie as well. All you need to do is add 4 cups of mixed berries of your choice.

This is MY FAVORITE PIE CRUST RECIPE.

Blueberry pie ingredients

  • 4 cups frozen or fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar depending on the tartness of the berries
  • 3 T flour
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon zest
  • dash of ground nutmeg (fresh ground nutmeg is so yummy)!
  • 2 single pie crusts (pre-made or homemade)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Mix together the sugar, flour, nutmeg and lemon zest.
  • Pour over the berries in a medium size mixing bowl and toss to coat.
  • If you bought a frozen crust at the store, let it thaw on the counter for about 15 minutes before baking.

  • Pour the berries in and put your top crust on.
  • Using a knife, cut away the excess pie dough. (Just under the rim)

  • Fold the edges under and crimp.
  • Cut a few slits with a sharp knife in the top crust to let the steam escape.
  • Take two pieces of tin foil and place crosswise on a cookie sheet. This will keep the pan clean in case the filling oozes out, and help keep the crust edge from burning later on in the cooking process.
  • Set the timer for 15 minutes. When the buzzer goes off, check to see if the edges are getting brown. If they are, fold the tin foil up and over just the edges of the crust and continue baking.
  • Bake at 375 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Let it cool for the same amount of time.

Serve warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream. Oh baby, so delicious! This is my husbands FAVORITE and it may become yours as well!

Enjoy your day, and a slice of yummy pie!
