New Recipe: Blueberry Pie with Streusel Topping

I despise long introductions to recipes that make you scroll through pages and pages of how your life will change after you make this recipe. So let it suffice to say this: my husband doesn't like blueberry pie, and he liked this.


I adapted the recipe from several that I found, adding my own tweaks here and there because I can't leave well enough alone. I've linked to them in case you want to see the original inspiration.


And without further ado:

For the Crust:

1 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. Crisco

1/2 t. salt

1/4 c. cold water

This recipe makes one pie crust. If you want to do a top crust, you would need to double this recipe. You do not need to chill the dough.

Combine first 3 ingredients with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Add water and mix thoroughly. Turn out onto floured surface and roll into round shape. Fit into pie pan. Adapted from here.

For the Filling:


4 c. fresh blueberries

1/4 c. cornstarch

2/3 c. sugar

2 t. vanilla

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. allspice

1 t. salt

1 T. salted butter


In a medium bowl, toss together all ingredients except butter. Fill pie with mixture. Slice butter and put the pats on top of filling. Adapted from here.


For the Streusel Topping:


2/3 c. packed brown sugar

4 T. cold salted butter, cubed or sliced

4 T. all-purpose flour

1/2 t. cinnamon


Use your pastry cutter to combine all ingredients. Top pie with streusel. Adapted from here.


Next time I might try adding quick oats to the streusel topping.


Bake pie at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40-55 minutes. Let stand 1-3 hours before serving, otherwise it will be really runny. This would be a great birthday pie instead of a traditional cake.


My favorite way to eat pie is for breakfast, because life is sweeter that way. Put it in a bowl, reheat it in the microwave, pour cold milk over it, and eat it with a spoon. This is a great substitute for your breakfast cereal. And if you like this new way of serving pie, thank my grandma, who I thought was crazy when I saw her pour milk on her pie--until I tried it myself.
