Making the Blueberry Pie Filling

Start by adding fresh or thawed frozen blueberries to a saucepan along with a 1/4 cup of water. Cook the berries over medium heat until they start to pop and bubble. Then, add 1/3 cup of granulated sugar and stir it all together. You’ll need about two cups or nine ounces of blueberries for this recipe.

In a separate bowl, mix together one tablespoon of cold water, one tablespoon of lemon juice, and a tablespoon of cornstarch until smooth. Add this mixture to the bubbling blueberry mixture and continue cooking while stirring. Within a few minutes, the mixture will thicken. Once it reaches the desired consistency, remove it from the heat and let it cool in a jar. The filling will thicken even more as it cools.

Versatile Ways to Use the Pie Filling

Now that you have your homemade blueberry pie filling, let’s explore some creative ways to use it!

Blueberry Danish

One of my favorite ways to enjoy this filling is in a delectable blueberry Danish. Start by unrolling a roll of crescent roll dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Press together the seams to create one smooth sheet of dough. Next, cut one-inch slits on either side of the dough to create strips for braiding. Fill the center with your blueberry pie filling and carefully braid the strips on top. Brush the entire Danish with an egg wash and bake until golden brown. Once cooled, drizzle with icing made from powdered sugar, heavy cream, and a touch of vanilla extract.

Hand Pies

If you’re looking for a portable and adorable treat, try making hand pies with your homemade blueberry pie filling. Roll out your pie dough, whether homemade or store-bought, and use a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter to create circles for the top and bottom of each hand pie. Place a spoonful of blueberry pie filling onto one circle, then top it with another circle of dough. Seal the edges with a fork, brush with egg wash, and bake until golden and cooked through.
