{Haute Pie} Classic Blueberry Pie

This blueberry pie recipe was passed down from my grandmother.  It is such a simple, basic recipe that creates the most delicious pie.  I make it every year when blueberries are in season and it is always gone within days at my house.  Many people believe that making a pie is so complicated, but this recipe proves that it really is simple as…well…pie!

Blueberry pie

4 cups fresh blueberries
1-2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup sugar
5-6 Tbsp flour
top and bottom pie crust – either store bought or homemade

Wash your blueberries and lay them out to dry.  You want them to be dry before you start your pie so you don’t add too much unnecessary moisture.

Place your blueberries in a large bowl and coat with lemon juice.  In a small bowl, mix the sugar and flour.  Pour the flour mixture over the blueberries and gently mix, being careful not to mash up any blueberries.  (For the best results, let the blueberries sit like this for about an hour to give the sugar some time to work its magic)

Preheat oven to 425.  Place bottom crust in a pie plate, add blueberry mixture and cover with top crust.  Crimp the edges and cut slits to vent.

Cook the pie for 25-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the blueberries are bubbling.

Let cool slightly before cutting.  Serve with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

    My husband is crazy for blueberries. I am going to surprise him with this on our next Sunday Dinner with Friends(we are a military family so once or twice I month I cook a big family style meal for all our friends).

  3. This looks so good! This crust is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen! So perfect!

  4. Beautiful! Pie crust intimidates me (even after I took a fantastic pie making class) but I’ll use your filling recipe and solicit Trader Joe’s pie crust to make the process stress free!

  5. That looks amazing – going to have to try making one!

    Just discovered your blog through Cornflake Dreams, would love it if you stopped by mine sometime.
