Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Make crust: In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, and sugar until combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. With machine running, add 1 cup ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 1/2 cup water, 1 tablespoon at a time). Do not overmix. Divide dough into 2 disks; wrap each tightly in plastic. Refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to overnight).

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Make filling: In a large bowl, toss together blueberries, cornstarch, sugar, and lemon zest and juice. On a floured work surface, roll out 1 disk to a 12-by-16-inch rectangle. Place in a 10-by-14-by-1-inch rimmed jelly-roll pan. Pour in blueberry filling, then lightly brush edges of crust with water. On floured surface, roll out second disk to an 11-by-15-inch rectangle and lay over blueberry filling; press along moistened edges to seal. Fold overhang under, tucking it into pan, and crimp edges. With a paring knife, cut slits on top to vent.

  • Place pie in oven, then reduce heat to 375 degrees. Bake until crust is golden and juices are bubbling, 50 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cook's Notes

To freeze: Let pie cool completely, then freeze it for up to 2 months. Thaw it at room temperature and reheat it in a 350-degree oven for 25 minutes.

This recipe is fantastic. I split the recipe into two Pyrex pie pans for a 4th of July party, cut a star out of the top, and it was a serious hit! Also I used frozen blueberries and it was not too wet at all. Perfect crispy crust and beautiful sticky filling. I did have to cook it a bit longer, rotating the two pies twice through cooking in my small oven. It came out a lot like the great quality of an Amish pie!

This is now one of my favorite recipes. While making it, I thought, “Holy heart attack, that’s a lot of butter!” But it sure is tasty. It came out perfectly. The only change I made was adding a pinch of cinnamon to the filling. Now I will try this recipe with peaches, apples and strawberries.

Tried the dough with another filling and it turned out great! The dough is very easy to make and it can be kept frozen for a few days
