Ingredients

  • Recipe for 9" Double Crust Pie Crust

  • 4 1/4

    cups blueberries, fresh or frozen

  • 3/4

    cup sugar (1 cup if the blueberries are tart)

  • 3

    Tablespoons cornstarch or quick-cooking tapioca (5 Tablespoons for frozen blueberries)

  • 1/4

    teaspoon cinnamon or nutmeg (optional for taste)

  • 1

    Tablespoon lemon zest

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh lemon juice

  • Tablespoons cold butter, cut in small pieces

  • 1

    Tablespoon milk or cream for brushing the top

  • 1

    Tablespoon sugar for sprinkling

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 2. Roll out the pie crust bottom and tops according to directions leaving enough overhang to fold underneath. Place the bottom pie crust evenly in a 9" pie pan or ceramic pie dish and set aside. Fold the top crust in half and place a towel over it so it doesn't dry out. 3. Toss together gently in a large bowl, blueberries, sugar, cornstarch or tapioca, spices if desired, lemon zest and lemon juice. 4. Fold into prepared pie crust and dot with cold butter. 5. Unfold the top crust and place over the top of the blueberry mixture. Fold the edges of the top crust over and under the bottom edges and flute according to your own preferences. 6. Brush the pastry crust with milk or ceam and sprinkle evenly with sugar. 7. Cut small decorative vent holes into the top crust using a knife or small cookie cutter. 8. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 400 for 50-60 minutes or until top is golden brown and the juices are bubbling. If the edges start to brown too quick, ring the crust edges with a piece of aluminum foil. 9. Let cool before cutting otherwise it will be too loose and look messy. Refrigerate before cutting for cleaner slices. 10. Top with fresh whipped cream or ice cream for Blueberry Pie à la mode! 11. Refrigerate leftovers if there are any!
