Blueberries and Cream Pie

Before I froze all my blueberries, I just had to make a pie out of some of them! I found this recipe that I have had for ages and haven't tried yet and decided to make it. I had all the ingredients, but no crust, so I hopped on-line and found a crust recipe... Not too excited about the crust, but I will share the pie recipe - cause it was DELISH!!

Blueberries and Cream Pie
(recipe found at copykat.com)
Serves: 8

1 unbaked pie shell
4 cups blueberries
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream

Preheat the oven to 400. Rinse berries and pick out any undesireable ones. After the berries have drained and are somewhat dry, pour them into the pastry shell. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the milk and the whipping cream, whisk until smooth. Pour over the berries and bake for 45 minutes. After about 30 minutes you may want to cover the edges of the crust with foil if it is getting too dark. Cool on a wire rack and refrigerate 2 hours before serving.


  1. Not to be 'hating' (and admittedly "unbaked pie shell" does not necessarily imply storebought), but here is Grandma Polman's recipe for pie crusts (though of course, she no longer actually makes them from scratch).

    Never Fail Pie Crust
    3 c Flour, 1 1/2 c Lard (though shortening works, it is a little less flaky), 1 t Salt
    Mix together with pastry blender 'til crumbly. Beat together (in a seperate container) 1 egg, 1 t. White Vinegar, & 4 T cold water. Add to flour/lard mixture til a doughy consistency is achieved.
    Makes four single, or 2 double crusts.

  2. I never like the pie crusts that I try, so thanks for the recipe - I will definitely have to give it a try!
