This pie, y’all!
Truly could not be easier and is so very yummy! My general theory on homemade pie crust, which I have made before, is that pie is mostly about the filling. Unless it is a crust-topped pie – that requires some flaky, homemade effort! So if you are just filling a pie crust with yumminess, go cheaty and use a pre-made crust. With the aforementioned cheaty pre-made crust, this takes about 5 minutes to mix up and get in the oven (pre-heating the oven takes longer than the prep).
This pie has great flavor and texture – both creamy and crunchy, thanks to the streusel topping. Of course, after the Misses had a bite, both reminded me that they don’t like blueberries (I knew this, obviously, but it’s A PIE, come on!), and each only had a teeny-tiny slice before calling it quits. D and I took up their slack and made a bit of a dent over the course of a week…
Thank goodness for running. 🙂
Creamy Blueberry Pie
Yield: One 9-inch pie
3 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed and drained
1 – 9 inch pie crust (I used store-bought, because that’s cool with me)
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp. salt
2 eggs, beaten
2/3 cup sour cream
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
For Streusel topping:
1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Place the blueberries in the pie crust and set aside.
3. Combine sugar, flour, and salt in a medium bowl. Whisk to combine.
4. Add the eggs, sour cream, and lemon juice, whisking until blended.
5. Pour the sour cream mixture over the blueberries.
6. In another bowl, prepare the streusel topping: combine the sugars and flour.
7. Cut in the butter with pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
8. Sprinkle the topping over the sour cream mixture and berries in the pie shell.
9. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until lightly browned and set in the center.

Note: Cover with aluminum foil or a pie shield for he last 20 minutes or so of baking if the crust is browning too much.
