Easy Homemade Blueberry Pie

Easy Homemade Blueberry Pie.  Awesome recipe for the easiest ever fresh blueberry pie.  This might be the best pie I've ever had!

Nothing says summer quite like fresh blueberry pie–especially one made from blueberries you’ve picked yourself!  Sadly for those of us down here in sunny Florida, blueberry season is already over, but we are happily still enjoying the lingering fruits of our labor. Mmmmmm….blueberries….

The great thing about homemade pie–especially when you “cheat” and use ready-made pie crusts–is that it only seems hard and labor intensive.  Blueberry pie is especially easy because unlike most pie fruits, blueberries require almost no prep work.  If you’re feeling slightly more ambitious you could make a perfect pie crust from scratch, but it is definitely not necessary!

How to Make Blueberry Pie

Here is what you need:

1 package ready made refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
5 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup white sugar
6 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon heavy cream

How to Make Blueberry Pie

Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Let pie crusts sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes.  Carefully unroll one of the crusts onto 9″ pie plate.

Step 2: Unroll second crust onto large cutting board.  Using decorative pie crust cutters or a small cookie cutter, cut shapes out of crust.  Alternatively, you could cut the crust into strips to do a lattice-type crust.

Step 7:  Place pie on cookie sheet and bake for approximately 50 minutes at 425 degrees.  You may want to cover pie with foil after 20-25 minutes so that it doesn’t get too brown.

Step 8:  Let cool at least 1 hour before serving.  Depending on your preference, serve chilled or warm with vanilla ice cream!

    I made this yummy pie and it was very good, but the second time I made it I brought the temp. of the oven down to 350′ and actually did not use the egg yolk and cream mixture on top, instead I use cinnamon sugar and this helped along with the decrease of the oven temp for the crust not to burn it just takes a little longer to bake. Well worth it.

    I just made this last weekend and it is amazing! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I had never made a pie from scratch before and this was the perfect first try. I used the Pillsbury pie crusts, not homemade, but they were really great. On a side note, you can use the rest of the heavy cream to make some awesome homemade whipped cream topping. Thanks again!
