Easy Homemade Blueberry Pie Recipe

This blueberry pie formula is so basic! In the event that you’ve never made a pie without any preparation, you are in the ideal spot. I am going walk you through the entire procedure. We should discuss the fixings first.

What You Will Need

This is what you’ll have to make blueberry pie without any preparation:

Pie outside layer — this can be custom made or locally acquired. I’ve talked more about pie outside layer underneath.

Blueberries — these can be new (my favored choice) or solidified. Solidified blueberries should be defrosted and depleted of additional juices before utilizing to make the pie.

Sugar, lemon pizzazz, cinnamon, and allspice — these add pleasantness and flavor to the pie.

Cornstarch — for a thickened pie filling, we need cornstarch. A few plans call for flour, yet in our testing cornstarch appeared to work best.

Spread — only a small piece of margarine makes the filling sparkling and additional flavorful on top.

Egg yolk and cream — these make up our egg wash, which we brush over the outside layer. As the pie heats, the egg and cream are what makes the covering turn brilliant and look glossy.

I love the zest from allspice and cinnamon and punch from lemon get-up-and-go in this pie. We don’t include so much that they detract from the blueberries, yet we do add enough to lift their flavor a piece.

Ingredients

  • Pie dough for top and bottom 9-inch pie, chilled

  • 2/3 cup to 3/4 cup (130 to 150 grams) granulated sugar, adjusted according to sweetness of berries

  • 1/4 cup (30 grams) cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 2 pounds (900 grams) fresh blueberries (about 6 cups)

  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut into small squares

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream

  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar, for garnish

Directions

  • PREPARE BOTTOM CRUST
  • Roll out half of the pie dough to fit an 8- or 9-inch pie dish. To prevent the dough from sticking and to ensure uniform thickness, roll from the center of the dough outwards and keep lifting up and turning the dough a quarter turn as you roll.
  • Check for the correct size by inverting the pie dish over the dough. The dough should be about 2 inches larger than the dish.
  • Being careful not to stretch the dough, fit into pie dish then trim dough to within 3/4-inch of the edge of the dish. Refrigerate while you make the pie filling.
  • MAKE PIE FILLING
  • Stir sugar, cornstarch, lemon peel, allspice, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add blueberries and gently toss to combine. Transfer the blueberry filling to the prepared pie crust. Refrigerate while you prepare the lattice crust.
  • ASSEMBLE AND ADD LATTICE CRUST
  • Roll out the second half of dough to a similar size as before. Cut into 3/4-inch strips. Lay five strips over filled pie, parallel and equally spaced from one another.
  • Carefully fold back the second and fourth strips then lay another strip of dough perpendicular to them. Unfold second and fourth strips over new strip. Fold back the first, third and fifth strips then lay another strip of dough perpendicular to them. Unfold the first, third and fifth strips over the new strip. Repeat until pie has been covered with a lattice crust. (Watch us do this in our video: how to make a lattice crust).
  • Trim dough strips to 3/4-inch of the edge of dish. Fold edges of strips and bottom dough underneath itself, creating a thicker border that rests on the lip of the dish. Crimp edges.
  • Dot the butter over the open areas of the lattice. Make egg wash by whisking egg yolk and cream together then brush over pie dough. Sprinkle tablespoon of coarse sugar over crust. Refrigerate pie 20 minutes or freeze for 5 minutes before baking.
  • TO FINISH
  • Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven then place a baking sheet on rack. (The baking sheet will catch any drips from the pie while baking).
  • Bake chilled pie on hot baking sheet for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F then continue to bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and juices in the filling are bubbling eagerly. If, while baking, the crust begins to brown too much, cover with aluminum foil and continue to bake until done.
  • Cool 2 to 3 hours before cutting to allow filling to set.
