You can make the best blueberry pie using the blueberry pie filling recipe, but make it extra special by adding in some sweet, fresh strawberries. There are many ways to make this pie. You can put a full crust on top, or for you an cut out the dough and top it off with a heart or any favorite cookie cutter for high drama.
I like high drama in a blueberry pie, especially when it’s a birthday pie, which exactly what this was made for. If truth be told, I’m much more of a pie person than a cake person. I love making pie crust and I’ve made it so often, I do it without looking at a recipe or thinking. It’s so much easier than most people think when you have the tips for success, the right ratio for fat and flour and the discipline to make the pie dough in advance so it has time to relax in the refrigerator. Follow my advice for perfect pie crust and I promise you a successful pie dough. (There’s a video at the recipe, if you need extra help.)
Now that you have that under your baking belt, let’s get to fruit filling. Blueberry pie makes people happier than most desserts. I don’t know why; I’m just an observer.Add fresh strawberries on the top for extra prettiness, and you have a most winning combination of flavors. It’s the best blueberry pie you can make. I promise.
This is the best blueberry pie recipe, as it’s kid tested, man tested, and me tested. The most amazing thing about this pie is that it was made by six year old twin boys. These are my best friend’s kids making their dad a birthday pie. You often see them cooking with me and sometimes they show up on my youtube channel, a real treat.
The next time you have to make a birthday cake, make a pie. Now technically, this is a tart, because that bottom will come out and it will make a spectacular presentation. In flavor, taste, and texture, it’s a pie, using my perfect good, old fashioned pie crust recipe. No matter what you call it, it’s a food memory that will last a life time. Try a little whipped cream or vanilla ice cream for extra goodness and enjoy the best blueberry pie recipe from my kitchen.
