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).
- 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!

How to make blueberry pie?
- 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.
- Bake the dough blind : this keeps the crunchy taste.
- Garnish with ground almonds and fresh blueberries and cook for a few minutes.
- 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.
