Rolling out the Pie Crust

To begin, you’ll need a batch of your favorite all-butter pie crust dough. If you don’t have a recipe, don’t worry! You can find one by clicking here. Once your dough is ready, let it chill in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to start baking, let the dough come closer to room temperature to avoid cracking.

Take the chilled dough out of the fridge and sprinkle it liberally with flour. This will prevent sticking as you roll it out. Roll the dough out from the center, adding more flour to your rolling pin if needed. Don’t worry if the dough isn’t perfectly round – it will still turn out great! Transfer the rolled-out dough to your pie dish, making sure not to stretch it too much. Use a knife to trim the edges.

Preparing the Blueberry Filling

For the filling, you’ll need five cups of fresh or frozen blueberries. If you’re using frozen blueberries, add an extra half cup. To add some zing to your pie, zest one lemon and add it to the blueberries. Squeeze in three tablespoons of lemon juice for that extra burst of flavor. Add half a cup of sugar and a quarter cup of cornstarch to thicken the filling. Toss everything together until well combined.

Assembling the Pie

Take the pie crust out of the fridge and gently pour in the blueberry filling. Make sure it’s spread evenly and there are no gaps. Now it’s time to create the lattice top! Roll out another batch of pie crust dough and cut it into thin strips. Arrange the strips in a lattice pattern on top of the filling. If braiding the edges feels too challenging, simply crimp the dough together with your fingers.

Baking to Perfection

Before popping the pie in the oven, brush the top with an egg wash made by mixing one egg with a tablespoon of cream. This will give the pie a glossy, golden color. Optionally, sprinkle some sugar on top for added crunch and sweetness. Bake the pie at 425°F for 20 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375°F and bake for another hour or so. To prevent the edges from burning, cover them with foil during the initial baking time.

Enjoy your Homemade Blueberry Pie

Once your pie is bubbling and golden brown, remove it from the oven and let it cool to room temperature. I know it’s tempting to dig in right away, but trust me, it’s worth the wait! The combination of juicy blueberries, flaky crust, and tangy lemon will have your taste buds dancing with joy. Serve a slice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate dessert experience.

So there you have it, the secret to making a scrumptious blueberry pie with frozen blueberries. Whether you’re a baking novice or a seasoned pro, this recipe is sure to impress. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out. Happy baking!
