What You'll Love About This Blueberry Pie Recipe

flavors : we find the good taste of fresh blueberries, with a touch of creaminess, and the good taste of shortcrust pastry with butter.

Texture : there are 3 different textures within this blueberry pie. A crunchy shortcrust pastry, a creamy flan-like texture, then cooked blueberries on top.

Difficulty level : nothing very complicated! The most technical gesture will be to prepare the homemade shortcrust pastry (even if it remains simple).

Ingredient details

  • for the shortcrust pastry : the butter must be well softened, to create the sandy side. The water must be very cold so that the dough is not too sticky.
  • for garnish : this blueberry pie is made with fresh blueberries. You must avoid frozen blueberries otherwise it will make too much water during cooking… Nothing beats a nice picking of blueberries!

NB: the exact quantities are given to you in the detailed recipe at the bottom of the page.

How to make blueberry pie?

  1. Prepare the shortcrust pastry house: beat the butter and the flour, then the icing sugar. Add the egg yolk and very cold water last. After cooling, it is ready to be rolled out on a floured work surface.
  2. Bake the dough blind : this keeps the crunchy taste.
  3. Garnish with ground almonds and fresh blueberries and cook for a few minutes.
  4. Finally, add the egg-cream-sugar-vanilla mixture then finish cooking.

Tips for a successful pie

  • refrigerate the ball of shortcrust pastry for 30 minutes before lowering it: otherwise it may be a bit sticky.
  • wash and dry your blueberries well before placing them on the bottom of the pie: this avoids adding extra water to the filling.
  • let the pie cool down then put it in the fridge before tasting it, I find it better that way.

How to store blueberry tart?

This blueberry pie is best kept in the refrigerator, in an airtight bell jar, for about 3-4 days.

  • Place a baking sheet on the dough and add ceramic balls (or dried beans). Bake for 12 minutes.

    Hello, I saw your blueberry pie recipe and I said to myself “I really want to make it!
    On the other hand, my spouse is allergic to almond powder, should I replace it with something else or not putting it will spoil the pie?
    Thanks for the recipe.

      Hello Johanna, the almond powder acts as an absorbent in the liquid contained in the blueberries. You can substitute hazelnut powder if you have, or breadcrumbs (but the final taste will be a little different). See you soon :)

      Hello Martine, cinnamon is a very good idea, it's a flavor that not everyone likes, but if you love it, don't hesitate to add it. See you soon :)

      Hello Anna, yes you can freeze your blueberry pie once baked. Well packaged and protected from humidity. To enjoy it afterwards, you thaw it for a long time in the refrigerator or you pass it a little in a low oven. See you soon :)
