Easy Blueberry Pie

IMG_1099

I made this Easy Blueberry Pie with our homegrown blueberries. However, my blueberries were frozen. I only have two blueberry bushes and I get about 1-2 cups of berries per day. So I wash my berries, let them dry and freeze them. I can use them all year long that way. When I bake with them, I thaw them about halfway or more before baking. If you are new at making pie crusts, or just don’t like doing it, purchase a premade refrigerated double crust. Otherwise, use your own favorite pie crust recipe and make your own.

Place another prepared pie crust on top of the pie plate. Seal the two pie crusts together by crimping and fluting the crust edges. Cut 1″ slices all over the top of the pie crust to allow the steam to escape. I have a pie form that cuts the squares in mine but you do not need it.

Place in a preheated 425 degree oven, on the lowest shelf, for about 50 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown.

  1. MMM! Sounds delicious. I was going to ask if I could use frozen blueberries and was pleased to see your mention of them right away. My mother brought me a huge bag of frozen berries, and there are only so many smoothies that one can stand. I can’t wait to try your recipe.

  2. D > Our equivalent, at this time of year, is a blackcurrant and gooseberry pie. In a few weeks from now that would be blackcurrant and apple, and the gooseberries and apple change places quite nicely. I just love the idea of blueberry pie, though. In fact any sort of pie: pastry is only bad if you eat too much of it, especially if you don’t have any physical work to burn off the calories! But a pie at Sunday lunchtime won’t kill anyone – it might even bring a smile to their face!
