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

  • 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
