Blueberry Pie

blueberry pie 003

  • dough for 2-crusted pie
  • 3 pints blueberries
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • dash cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 4 heaping Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • pinch sugar

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Roll out one crust and arrange it in the pie pan.  Combine blueberries, sugar, cinnamon, lemon zest and juice, salt and cornstarch in a bowl, then pour into the bottom crust and dot with butter.  Roll out remaining crust and use a star (or other shape) cookie cutter to make about 8 stars.  Refrigerate remaining crust for another use.  Lay the stars on a baking sheet and sprinkle with sugar, then bake for about 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  Bake pie for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350° and bake for another 50-60 minutes until the filling is bubbly and the crust is browned.  Arrange stars on the top of the pie and serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

    Ohhhhhh….is that what you’re bringing tonight? I have the frozen custard and whipped cream ready!

  2. I think I’ll add another Tbsp of cornstarch and 3/4 cup sugar instead of 2/3 next time around.

  3. Aw, this pie is just too sweet (just looking at it). I bet it taste just as yummy too.

  4. Okay, that’s the MOST beautiful pie ever.

    I like the stars on top – looks so festive! I’ll have to try that when I can sucessfully roll out pie crusts.
