★ Tips & FAQs ★
Pick your own blueberries!
It's a great way to keep little kids occupied over the summer.
Fresh picked blueberries, depending on where you live, are typically available throughout the last few weeks of summer.
Ever been blueberry picking?
If you've never been, then you've gotta add this to your bucket list! Grab a hat and head to your nearest blueberry farm. Pick blueberries until your heart's content, no one minds if you sample a few as you pick, then come back to this super easy recipe.
Make this pie with fresh picked blueberries!
Blueberry fields are typically marked so that you could choose between sweet or tart berries and you can sample as you go if you're not sure.
The tart blueberries are the BEST for making pies. Because they combine with the sugar to create a bright and delicious flavor that isn't too sweet or flat tasting.
Fresh blueberries are surprisingly affordable!
I was pleasantly surprised to find our whole blueberry excursion only cost about $6!
So pick a bunch! Try making blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry pop tarts, and of course you have to try this blueberry pie.
What are some good toppings for blueberry pie?
You could go traditional and top your blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream but I actually really like to use a dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt. I also sometimes a mint leaf because a little green makes everything look fresh and pretty.
A summer dessert you can enjoy for the holidays too.
Thanks to modern conveniences you can pretty much get fresh blueberries all year long at the grocery store.
So this pie can be made and served up for Thanksgiving, Easter or for other special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries — any time of the year.
Storing this Pie
Refrigerator: This pie will keep on the counter for about 2 days. You can also store it longer in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Freezer: This pie can be frozen for up to 4 months.
Making Ahead, then Freezing
You can also make this pie and then freeze it before you cook it.
When you're ready to bake it: let it warm up in the oven as the oven preheats. You may need to add 5-10 minutes additional cook time to account for it defrosting. It's done when the filling it bubbling and the crust is golden brown. Cover loosely with foil as needed to prevent crust from over browning.
Use a pie crust from the bottom, puff pastry top.
Since a trip to the store was not going to happen after running around the hot, sunny fields, I grabbed what I had available for crust — puffed pastry. I think it was one of those Bob Ross happy accidents because the puff pastry really made the pie so different and delicious!
An easy way to make your pie pretty.
If you get lazy from time to time like I do, and you don't care to take the time to perfectly crimp the edges of your pie, here's an easy solution.
Get a fluted pie pan.
The edges of the pan itself are fluted (scalloped) and so it makes the pie look way fancier without having to do any actual work yourself. Genius? I think so!
Just press the crust into the pan and use the edge of the pan to cut to size.
Watch the how-to video to better see how it's done.

Puff Pastry Blueberry Pie
- 2 sheets puff pastry dough thawed
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 2-4 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 3 tablespoon pectin or use tapioca
- 2 tablespoon milk
- 2 tablespoon sparkling sugar
- Unfold 1 puff pastry sheet and press into the bottom of a greased pie pan. Cut off extra crust corners. Bake for 10 minutes at 375˚ then remove from oven and let cool. Keep the oven on as you'll bake again with filling, next.
- Press the cooled puff pastry down as needed to flat some. Add blueberries on top. Sprinkle sugar evenly over top.
- Next, pour lemon juice evenly over top then sprinkle pectin evenly over top of the blueberries. Toss blueberries to coat and spread pectin and lemon. Finally, place darts of butter throughout.
- Unfold remaining puff pastry sheet and place on top of the pie, cut off or fold under extra dough. Pinch edges to seal and poke holes with a fork or cut small slits to vent the top.
- Optional: Brush top of pie crust with milk then sprinkle with sparkling sugar.
- Bake at 375˚ for about 30-35 minutes or until puff pastry becomes light golden brown and filling is bubbling.
- The pie will thicken as it cools. If you prefer to eat it warm it may be a little runny.
