Blueberry Pie

Celebrate berry season with our pie made with fresh blueberries and our flakey buttermilk pie crust.

Yield: 1 double-crust pie

Degree of difficulty: moderate

Prep Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Bake Time: 45-50 MINUTES

Total Time: 2 hours



FOR THE pie dough:

3 cups (420g) Cup4Cup Multipurpose Flour

2 tbsp (30g) granulated sugar

1 tsp (4g) Kosher salt

1 cup + 2 Tablespoons (255g) butter, cut into small cubes and chilled

1 large egg

½ cup (113g) cold buttermilk


FOR THE filling:

6 cups (850g)  fresh berries

½ tsp lemon zest

1 tbsp (15g) lemon juice

¼ cup (35g) Cup4Cup Multipurpose Flour

2 tsp (8g)  fresh ginger (finely grated)

½ cup (113g) granulated sugar

¼ tsp (1g)  Kosher salt

2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter (cut into small cubes)

1 beaten egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of water (egg wash)

1 tbsp (15g) coarse sugar (optional)



FOR THE pie dough:

  1. Place 3 cups of Cup4Cup flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor and pulse to evenly distribute. Add the cold, cubed butter to the flour and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. Transfer mixture into a large bowl and set aside.
  2. Whisk the egg and the buttermilk together in a small bowl.  Create a well in the flour mixture, gradually stir in the egg mixture with a fork until it forms a ball and gently compress into a dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and rest in refrigerator for 30 minutes. 
  3. Cut the dough ball in half. Using extra Cup4Cup flour to prevent sticking, roll one half of the dough into a disk about 12-inches in diameter and 1/8-inches thick.  Lay the rolled dough to into a 9-inch pie dish and trim the edges. If you are preparing a full top crust, roll the other half in the same manner and refrigerate until ready to use. If you are preparing a lattice top, roll out the remaining dough ball to the same thickness and cut into 1-inch-wide strips.

FOR THE filling:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the blueberries with the lemon zest and juice, ginger, Cup4Cup flour, sugar, and salt. 
  3. Place the fruit mixture in the dough-lined pie dish.
  4. Dot the top of the filling evenly with the 2 tablespoons cubed butter.
  5. Moisten the edges of the pie dough, then lay down the remaining disk of dough or weave the lattice strips on top of the filling. Press the edges to the crust together to seal then use a paring knife to trim the excess dough from the edge. Crimp the crust with your fingers or a fork. If you are preparing a full crust, cut a few slits slit in the top to allow steam to escape.
  6. Whisk the egg with the water to make an egg wash.
  7. Brush the top of the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle the coarse sugar on top.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  9. Cool for at least 1-2 hours to allow the filling to set before slicing.
