Seems like all my fav's come from Nana, probably why I practically lived with her my whole life lol. Here is her blueberry pie. I use store bought crust here and add nanas "secret to making it tasty all the way to the ends" You can use your favorite pie crust recipe instead. I do have nana's but rarely have time now a days to actually make it : (

How to Make Nana's Blueberry Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. mix the blueberries, sugar, flour, cinnamon, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large bowl. Careful not to bruise or squish berries.
  2. Pour into bottom pie crust. Dot with butter.
  3. Top with second pie crust and fold it over the edges of bottom crust and pinch to secure.
  4. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to firm up the dough.
  5. Remove from frig and poke holes in top of pie with fork to allow steam out while baking.
  6. Place pie on baking sheet in order to catch juices that may spill over and Bake in preheated 425 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
  7. Reduce temperature to 350 and bake for 20 minutes more.
  8. Remove pie and brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mix all over entire pie, making sure to get right to the edges (no one has ever left a crust on the plate from my pie since it tastes so delish)
  9. return pie to oven and bake for additional ten minutes or until juices are thick and bubbling.
  10. Remove pie and cool completely so it doesnt run when cut. (I do not like hot blueberries so I refrigerate mine after cooling and dont serve until its cold) Add a bit of cool whip or whip creme or ice cream and enjoy
