What is a Blueberry Pie?
It is a type of a berry pie that has a crust, a filling, and toppings using blueberries as the main ingredient.
Can you make a blueberry pie using frozen blueberries?
While using fresh ones would be better, you can still use the frozen ones if unavoidable. The frozen version comes handy when the fruit is not in season.
Do you have to thaw blueberries before making a pie?
There is no need to do that. The only trade-off is that it will bake for a longer period.
Thawing will only generate more liquid that will make the outcome too watery. So, it is better to simply toss those frozen berries in.
How do you make a blueberry pie?
- Prepare the crust: Use the food processor to combine the ingredients until crumbs form and then, add water little by little until you get the desired dough consistency. Divide the dough in two, roll to flatten into two circles, then, refrigerate covered in plastic wrap for at least an hour.
- Prepare the filling: Combine all the ingredients in one bowl except for the garnish, butter, and egg mixture. Set this aside and preheat the oven at 400 degrees F.
- Assemble: Get one of the chilled dough circle and roll flat on a floured surface. Keep rolling and turning until you get a flat sheet. Then, place it on a pie dish and put the filling in while leaving out any liquid. Dot the butter on top.
- Form the lattice: Get the other chilled dough circle, roll to make it thin, and cut up thin strips that are one or two inches wide. Use these strips to weave the lattice on top of the pie. Seal the edges.
- Bake: Brush the surface with egg mixture. Put the whole thing on a baking sheet and bake according to the prescribed duration and temperature.
- Cool and serve: After cooking, let it cool for 3 hours. Garnish, then, serve.
How to Store:
- Make ahead: You can prepare the filling and crust separately before baking. You can freeze both the filling and crust for up to three months, just thaw overnight before using.
- Refrigerate: Once cooked, you can refrigerate it overnight to let the filling set or until 5 days, loosely covered. Simply let it stand at ambient temperature before serving.
- Freeze: You can wrap the cooked pie in plastic wrap and transfer to a freezer bag. Frozen, it can keep for up to 6 to 8 months. Thaw overnight and allow to equilibrate at room temperature before serving.
- You can make other patterns instead of the lattice and be creative.
- The cornstarch serves as the thickener to prevent the whole thing from being soupy. You can substitute flour or other starches for this one.
- To prevent the top from burning before it is done, use a pie shield.
