Easy Blueberry Pie


Pie Crust, Pie Crust Stars

  • 2 9 inch pie crust ( you can use my recipe for Homemade All Butter Pie Crust or you can use refrigerated pie crust and cook the pie crust following the directions on the box)


  • 6 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten for egg wash
  • optional: coarse sugar for garnish


  • Prepare the pie dough/crust according the Homemade All Butter Pie Crust recipe up to baking part, or use pre-made pie crust. (See post if you need guidance with rolling out dough or transferring it to your pie plate, or need any pie crust troubleshooting.)
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Carefully place first pie crust dough into a 9 inch pie dish.
  • Stir the blueberries, granulated sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and lemon juice together in a large bowl. Let filling sit for 10 minutes. Spoon the filling into the crust. Sprinkle the pieces of butter on top of the filling.
  • Pie Crust Stars: Roll the 2nd pie crust dough out to the desired size (12-13″ circle), on a floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Use a star shaped cookie cutter (any size works) to shape into stars. Arrange stars on top of filling.
  • Make a egg wash, and brush over exposed parts of the crust and the stars. Sprinkle with a little coarse sugar.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, checking the pie at 20 minutes to make sure the crust isn’t browning too quickly. If it is, turn the temperature down to 350° and place a piece of foil over the top of the pie and continue baking.
  • * If using frozen blueberries, the pie will take several more minutes in the oven due to the increased liquid.
  • Allow pie to cool for 2-3 hours before slicing and serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream !
