Blueberry Pie


This Blueberry Pie is the perfect summer dessert. Made with fresh blueberries and a flaky pastry, it’s sure to be a hit with the whole family!

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Mix sugar, cornstarch, and salt together, and sprinkle over blueberries. Pour berry mixture into pie crust, and dot with 1/4 cup butter. Bake pie for 50 minutes.

Mix together 2 tablespoons sugar, flour, and 1 1/2 tablespoons butter. Cut in butter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over blueberry pie.

Bake pie for an additional 10 minutes. Cool before serving.

Potential changes & improvements

If you’re looking for a little extra something, try adding a teaspoon of lemon juice to the berry mixture. This will help to bring out the flavour of the blueberries. You could also try using a different type of berry, such as raspberries or blackberries. Just be sure to adjust the sugar accordingly.

What other food it works well with

This pie is delicious on its own, but it also goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Common Mistakes

Be sure to use fresh blueberries for this recipe. Frozen berries will release too much liquid and make the pie soggy. Also, be sure to use a pie dish that is deep enough to accommodate all of the berry mixture. If the mixture bubbles over, it will make a mess of your oven!
