This pie recipe probably isn't a far cry from other recipes you've seen, but boy - does it make one delicious pie! My Mom has made it for years, and now I have started to do the same. It disappears quickly!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Full of sweet blueberries and a hint of cinnamon, this is an old-fashioned blueberry pie like grandma used to make. The fresh blueberry filling is gooey. Some blueberries burst in the baking process and some don't, giving the filling a little texture. When they burst in your mouth it's very satisfying. We made a homemade crust to give that old-fashioned flaky crust, but a store-bought one would work too. This is the perfect summer pie when blueberries are in season. Serve with a big scoop of ice cream for the ultimate summer treat.

How To Make blueberry pie

Test Kitchen Tips
Make sure to a 9" pie pan that's 1" deep (not a deep-dish pie pan).
  • Prepared pie crust in a pie plate.
    Heat oven to 425. Prepare crust according to directions or by scratch for a 9" pie.
  • Tossing blueberries with sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
    In a bowl, stir together sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Then mix berries in.
  • Blueberries added to the pie plate and dotted with butter.
    Turn the mixture into the pastry-lined pan. Sprinkle with lemon juice and dot with butter.
  • Top crust added; edges fluted and sealed.
    Cover with top crust and cut slits in the top. Seal and flute edges.
  • Pie shield covering the edges.
    Cover edge with a ring or with 2-3 inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning. Remove covering during the last 15 minutes of baking.
  • Blueberry pie baking in the oven.
    Bake 35-45 minutes, depending on your oven. Crust should be golden brown and juice should be starting to bubble through the slits.
  • Blueberry Pie with ice cream.
    Let it cool a little, then enjoy with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delish!
