Blueberry Pie

Hey there, pie lovers! Calling all blueberry fans because we’re going to whip up a classic blueberry pie recipe that’s perfect for any occasion.

You know how pies are a crowd-pleaser around here? We’ve got all sorts of delicious options like mixed berry, pecan, banana cream, and my all-time favorite, easy key lime pie. But trust me, if you love blueberries, this recipe will become your new best friend.

Blueberry pie is a dessert that holds a special place in everyone’s heart, and for good reason! It’s got that satisfyingly crunchy crust, those sweet and juicy blueberries, and it’s perfect for sharing with loved ones. Did you know there’s even a National Blueberry Pie Day on April 28th? Just another excuse to indulge in this deliciousness!

But guess what? We’re smack dab in the middle of summer right now, and that means amazing deals on fresh blueberries! It’s the perfect time to be baking up a batch of this classic pie.

Here’s the thing: making blueberry pie is surprisingly easy! There are all sorts of variations out there, some with lemon juice or zest (we’re keeping it simple), and debates about the best crust (we’re a sucker for a good lattice top).

Let’s get started!

First things first, wash those beautiful blueberries. Then, in a big bowl, mix together some sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon. Gently toss this mixture with the blueberries to coat them evenly.

Now, grab your bottom crust and place it in your pie dish. Pour in the delicious blueberry filling, and don’t forget to dot it with a few pats of butter for extra richness.

Ready for the fun part? We’re going to make a lattice top! Don’t worry, it’s easier than it looks. I’ll walk you through it step-by-step.

First, roll out your dough and cut it into strips about half an inch to three-quarters of an inch wide. Lay five of these strips vertically across the pie, spaced evenly. Now comes the trick: fold every other strip back in half, like an accordion. Don’t worry if the dough gets a little sticky, just dust it with some flour to keep things moving smoothly.

Here’s where the magic happens

take another strip of dough and lay it horizontally across the pie, on top of the vertical strips that are folded back. Gently unfold those folded strips and fold down the ones that are now underneath the horizontal strip. Now, lay another horizontal strip across the pie, and repeat this process until half of the pie is covered. Easy, right?

Just turn your pie so the unfinished side is facing you, and repeat the whole process until the entire pie is covered in a beautiful lattice top.

Pop that baby in the oven and bake it for about 50 minutes, or until the crust is a gorgeous golden brown. And voila! You’ve just made a perfect homemade blueberry pie.
