For the Pie Crust:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 🍚
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small cubes 🧈
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 🍬
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 🧂
  • 6-8 tablespoons ice water 🧊

For the Blueberry Filling:

  • 5 cups fresh blueberries, washed and drained 🫐
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 🍬
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch or tapioca flour 🌽🍚
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 🍋
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 🌿
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 🧈

For Egg Wash (optional):

  • 1 large egg, beaten 🥚
  • 1 tablespoon milk or water 🥛💧


For the Pie Crust:

  1. Prepare the Dough:
    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the cold cubed butter.
  2. Cut in the Butter:
    • Use a pastry blender or your fingers to cut the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Add Ice Water:
    • One tablespoon at a time, gradually add ice water, and mix until the dough begins to come together. Watch out not to mix too much.
  4. Form the Dough:
    • The dough should be divided into two equal pieces, with each piece being formed into a disk. Place each disk in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight after wrapping it in plastic wrap.

For the Blueberry Filling:

5. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  1. Prepare the Blueberries:
    • Fresh blueberries should be gently mixed with granulated sugar, cornstarch (or tapioca flour), lemon juice, and vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl until coated.

Assemble and Bake the Blueberry Pie:

7. Roll Out the Pie Crust:

  • Roll out one disk of pie dough into a circle that is 12 inches in diameter on a surface that has been lightly dusted with flour. Transfer the rolled-out dough with caution to a 9-inch pie pan, and then gently press the dough into the bottom and sides of the pan.
  1. Add the Blueberry Filling:
    • Pour the prepared blueberry filling into the pie crust, spreading it evenly.
  2. Dot with Butter:
    • Scatter the small pieces of unsalted butter over the top of the blueberry filling.
  3. Roll Out the Second Crust:
  • Roll out the second disk of pie dough into a circle, about 12 inches in diameter.
  1. Cover and Seal the Pie:
  • Place the second pie crust over the blueberry filling. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges and press the edges of the top and bottom crusts together to seal.
  1. Vent the Pie:
  • Use a sharp knife to create several small slits or cutouts on the top crust to allow steam to escape while baking.
  1. Egg Wash (optional):
  • For a golden and glossy finish, you can brush the top crust with a mixture of beaten egg and milk (or water).
  1. Bake the Pie:
  • Place the assembled pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the blueberry filling is bubbling.
  1. Cool and Serve:
  • Before serving, take the Blueberry Pie out of the oven and let it cool on a wire rack. If desired, top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy it warm or at room temperature.
