I wasn’t planning on baking a blueberry pie at all, but then the fresh blueberries were on sale at my supermarket and I “accidentally” bought over half a kilo of them. Only when I got home did I wonder what on earth I was going to do with half a kilo of blueberries.
The answer came to me pretty quickly, of course: bake something!
The first thing I came up with was blueberry muffins, but I’ve got three different blueberry muffin recipes up on my blog already (with lemon, lime, and mango) so I figured it was time to try something else. Plus, I just didn’t feel like baking muffins again.
So, what better to bake when you have a truckload of blueberries than a blueberry pie? I’d never baked a blueberry pie before, but it was easy enough. I just used the pastry from my apple pie recipe (which is one of the first recipes I ever posted on this blog) and changed the filling to blueberry instead. I also added some lemon to both the pastry and the filling, and a little bit of ground cinnamon to give the flavour a boost.
And it came out absolutely delicious! This pie is easy to make and tastes so, so good, both when it’s still warm and when it’s cooled down. Yum!
