Just picked up a box of fresh blueberries at our farmer’s market so it’s all blue this week! I always prefer to use glass pie plates for a nice crisp crust!
Makes Enough For One 9” Pie
Prepared pie dough for a 2 crust pie; either your favourite crust or see below for the link to to mine!
6 cups fresh blueberries
¾ cup sugar
3 Tbsp. Minit Quick Cooking tapioca
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
Pinch of cinnamon
1½ Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into ¼” cubes
2 Tbsp. cream for glazing the pie
1 Tbsp. or two of sugar (opt.)
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Combine the sugar, tapioca & cinnamon in a large bowl; add the blueberries & lemon juice & fold together. Allow the mixture to stand while you roll out the pie dough.
Once you have lined the bottom of the pie plate with the rolled out crust, add the blueberry filling, place the top crust over, trim & crimp the edges to your liking, cut vents into the top of the pie to allow steam to escape during baking. Brush the crust with cream & sprinkle with sugar if desired.
Place the pie onto a baking sheet & bake for approximately 45 minutes, checking after 35 minutes. If the pie is browning too quickly, loosely lay a piece of foil over the pie and continue baking until the filling is bubbly and the crust is browned.
Place the pie on a baking rack to cool completely. Serve with ice cream if desired or a combination of lightly whipped cream & either sour cream or mascarpone!
