Homemade Blueberry Pie – A deliciously flaky, all-butter pie crust filled with a sweet, homemade blueberry filling!
I hope you’ve been enjoying my Homemade Cherry Pie recipe, because today I bring you another scrumptious pie to serve up this summer – I bring you my Homemade Blueberry Pie!
This pie is made completely from scratch, just like my cherry version. The crust is all-butter, and incredibly flaky. The blueberry filling consists of only a few ingredients, and produces a deliciously sweet, and thick pie filling.
If you love pie and blueberries, you need to make this. This pie received rave reviews from my family, and I’m sure yours will love it, too!
How to make a Homemade Blueberry Pie
Ingredients you’ll need:
- My homemade pie crust (or 2 store-bought pie crusts)
- fresh blueberries
- caster/granulated sugar
- lemon juice
- ground cinnamon
- large egg
To make this pie, simply prepare my pie crust recipe through to step 3.
Place the blueberries, sugar, cornflour, lemon juice, and cinnamon into a large saucepan over medium heat. Stirring occasionally, cook for about 10 – 15 minutes until the blueberries start to break down, and the mixture has thickened.
You’ll want a fairly thick mixture so that it will hold its shape when cutting the pie later. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the discs of dough to a 12-inch circle. Carefully press the dough into an ungreased 9×2-inch pie dish, then spoon the blueberry filling into the crust.
Roll out the other disc of dough to a 12-inch circle. Using a pastry wheel, or sharp knife, cut out strips from the dough. Carefully thread the strips over and under one another on top of the filling. Cut off any excess dough, and seal the strips into the bottom crust.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking.
Brush the pastry with the egg wash, and sprinkle with sugar. Place the pie dish onto a baking tray, and bake for 35 – 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Placing the pie dish onto a baking tray ensures the bottom crust cooks through.
Allow the pie to cool completely at room temperature before slicing and serving.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

How long will this blueberry pie last? This pie and any leftovers can be covered tightly and stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.
