Overhead view of ingredients including blueberries, pie crust, lemon juice, cornstarch, and more.
  • Blueberries. I want contemporary blueberries, however frozen will work too. In the event you use frozen berries, I extremely advocate thawing and draining them first.
  • Lemon juice. One other filling ingredient, lemon juice provides a brightness to the pie filling with out making it bitter or lemony. When paired with the sugar, these two elements will macerate the berries as they sit, making a juicy pie filling.
  • Cornstarch. Cornstarch (or corn flour within the UK) thickens our blueberry pie filling and helps forestall it from being a runny mess. Don’t skip this ingredient!
  • Granulated sugar. You possibly can all the time alter the quantity of sugar relying on the sweetness of your berries, much like making my strawberry sauce. I additionally wish to sprinkle some coarse or turbinado sugar on prime of the crust (after the egg wash) earlier than baking. This provides some texture and sparkle!
  • Pie crust. You will want two pie crusts for this recipe. After all, I extremely advocate utilizing my straightforward pie crust recipe; it’s extremely straightforward to make in a meals processor and makes use of a sneaky secret ingredient for constant outcomes.

SAM’S TIP: Some individuals like so as to add cinnamon to their blueberry pie filling; in case you’d like, you may add as much as ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon right here. Personally, I want it with out although as I just like the contemporary berry taste and really feel the cinnamon inhibits it a bit.

  2. Make the filling. Stir collectively the blueberries, cornstarch, sugar, lemon juice, and salt till very nicely mixed, then put aside.

Fortunately, since we’re doing a lattice crust, you possibly can poke the butter by the holes, but it surely’s finest to strive to not overlook regardless 😉

Make a Lattice Crust

  1. Roll out your second crust and reduce it into even strips which can be about ¾-1″ broad. You will want 10 strips; I normally discard the highest and backside cuts. You need to use a knife or a pizza cutter, however I like the ornamental edge a pastry wheel yields; that is the one I use.
  2. Evenly place 5 of your strips horizontally over your pie. Be certain to order the longer strips for the middle of the pie and your shorter ones for the sides.
  3. Gently fold again each different strip midway, then lay down one lengthy strip vertically within the middle of the pie, perpendicular to the horizontal strips.
  4. Lay the folded again strips over the lengthy vertical strip. Now fold again each different horizontal strip. Evenly place one other vertical strip beside the primary one.
  5. Repeat along with your third strip. Now half of our pie is wanting nice!
  6. End the opposite half of your pie, repeating the identical steps.
  7. Shift and straighten your strips as wanted, then trim the surplus dough from the strips so that every ends on the fringe of the pie plate. Don’t trim the dough from the underside crust!
  8. Fold the surplus dough from the underside crust over the sting of every strip.
  9. Flute the pie crust, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. That’s it!

SAM’S TIP: It’s all the time a good suggestion to put a baking sheet beneath your pie whereas it bakes. This can catch any drips and bubbles and hold the underside of your oven good and clear. You possibly can both place the sheet on the rack beneath your pie, or simply put your pie on the sheet itself (doing this may enable you to get the pie out and in of the oven simpler too!).
