Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Easy Blueberry Pie.

Do I Need To Thaw Blueberries Before Making This Pie? 

No, you do NOT need to thaw blueberries before making this pie. You WILL need to adjust your baking time, expect at least 20 minutes longer, cover the top with aluminum foil for the last 20 minutes to prevent over browning.  

How Do I Find Good Fresh Blueberries?

Check your local farm stand starting in June, look for plump full berries with a thin skin.

Call your local farm agent and ask who has blueberries for sale near you. 

Here is some terrific information about ALL the specifics regarding blueberries! 

How Do I Know This Pie Is Done? 

You will see that the blueberry filling is hot and bubbling, the crust is browned and the pie is no longer loose in the middle. 

Do I Need To Refrigerate Blueberry Pie? 

Once your pie is done, you do not have to refrigerate it, but it will last longer if you do.

This pie will keep for 3 days if covered and at room temperature.

It will last for 5 days covered in the refrigerator

Why Is My Blueberry Pie Runny? 

If you notice that the filling of your pie is runny, it is likely one of two things:

  1. You didn’t allow it to bake long enough. 
  2. You didn’t add the right amount of cornstarch to the filling. 
  3. Did you allow your pie to cool before serving? Allow this pie to cool to room temp before serving. (This allows the pie to set). 

How Can I Keep My Pie From Being Runny? 

  1. Make sure that you follow the baking time and temperature as stated in the recipe. 
  2. Use the proper amount of cornstarch and make sure it is mixed in well. 
  3. After baking, let the pie cool completely before cutting into it. This gives time for the filling to set.

TIPS & TRICKS for perfect Easy Blueberry Pie! 

  • Use fresh blueberries, if they are in season (late spring/ early summer on the east coast). 
  • Gently rinse your blueberries and allow them to dry completely before using. 
  • Use frozen blueberries if you can not find fresh. 
  • The lemon zest adds plenty of freshness and is important to the flavor balance, don’t leave that part out. 
  • Serve with a fresh vanilla ice cream – oh man! So good! 

PRO TIP:  The crust on this pie is made even more perfect by using an egg wash and then coat the whole top with about 4 Tbs raw sugar. This gives a lovely brown and crunchy top.

Ingredients

  • 2 Refrigerated pie crusts feel free to make your own crust!
  • ¾ C Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ C cornstarch
  • The zest of one lemon
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 6 Cups Blueberries
  • 1 Tbs butter cut into pea sized pieces, refrigerate till ready to use.
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbs heavy cream
  • 2 Tbs Raw sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 – and place a large cookie sheet on the lower rack of the oven to catch drips
  • Prepare your pie plate with non stick cooking spray. Place one crust into your pie pan. Then set aside.
  • Stir the sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the blueberries and gently toss until blueberries are coated. Turn blueberries out into the bottom layer of pie crust.
  • Take top crust and make lattice by cutting into strips and weaving onto top of pie. Pinch edges together firmly to make fluted design.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg yoke and cream together – paint onto the top crust of the pie. Sprinkle top with the 2 Tbs of sugar. Place the tiny pieces of butter around the top of the pie.
  • Place pie in the refrigerator for at least 5 mins.
  • Place pie on the middle wrack of the oven and bake at 400 for 20 mins then decrease the temp to 350 for 35-45 mins.

Notes

  • I recommend using refrigerated pie crust for the ease of making the pie, however, a homemade crust is so much better.  Do that if you can! 
  • Taste the blueberries before you start making the pie, if they are not very sweet berries, increase the sugar by 1/4 cup.  
  • Use fresh blueberries, if they are in season (late spring/ early summer on the east coast). 
  • Gently rinse your blueberries and allow them to dry completely before using. 
  • Use frozen blueberries if you can not find fresh. 
  • The lemon zest adds plenty of freshness and is important to the flavor balance, don't leave that part out. 
  • Serve with a fresh vanilla ice cream - oh man!  So good!  PRO TIP:  The crust on this pie is made even more perfect by using an egg wash and then coat the whole top with about 4 Tbs raw sugar.  This gives a lovely brown and crunchy top. Of course, this is 2 Tbs more than I recommend in the recipe, but I know there are some daring people out there.

A VERSE TO SHARE

I feel lost, a LOT, do you? Do you ever see someone and say to yourself, “wow, she looks as though she uses drugs and makes bad decisions”. She might be lost too. Thank GOODNESS, that is exactly who Jesus came to see, visit with, talk to and SAVE. He came for YOU and for ME – BOTH. Equally. Amen. 

Luke 19:10 

For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost

My husband loves blueberries and can have everything but the granulated sugar because of Diabetes I.. The Endocrinologist said moderate amounts of sugar, but not certain what moderate amount is and didn't think to ask him. They count carbs now in the place of sugar. Perhaps a slice would be alright per day?

The recipe sounds delicious.

Hi Eileen! Thanks so much for leaving me a message. I don't know if you could use some of the baking quality sweeteners or not, but it might be worth a try. The nutrition card at the bottom of the recipe does give you carbs, so you can add those in for a single slice. Thank you so much for leaving a comment!
