Homemade Blueberry Pie Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups fresh blueberries, washed and stems removed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 package (2 pie crusts) of store-bought or homemade pie crusts
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Optional: vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for serving

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the fresh blueberries, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, lemon juice, lemon zest, ground cinnamon, and salt. Gently toss the mixture until the blueberries are evenly coated with the sugar and flour mixture. Set aside.
  3. Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it into a 9-inch pie dish, pressing it gently against the bottom and sides of the dish. Trim any excess dough from the edges with a sharp knife.
  4. Pour the blueberry filling into the prepared pie crust, spreading it out evenly.
  5. Dot the top of the blueberry filling with small pieces of unsalted butter.
  6. Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the blueberry filling. You can either place the crust on top whole or cut it into strips to create a lattice pattern. Trim any excess dough from the edges, then crimp the edges of the pie crusts together to seal.
  7. If using a whole crust on top, make several slits in the center of the pie to allow steam to escape during baking. If using a lattice crust, weave the strips over and under each other to create the lattice pattern.
  8. Brush the top crust with beaten egg, which will give the pie a golden-brown color when baked.
  9. Place the pie on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  10. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before serving.
  11. Serve slices of the blueberry pie warm or at room temperature, topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, if desired.
  12. Enjoy your delicious homemade blueberry pie!
