A delicious pie that is easy to prepare. Note to World Tour participants - I believe the ingredients are typical for the Canada region.
- Put first five ingredients in a 9 inch pie pan.
- Mix with a fork until well blended and pat into the pan.
- Push the pastry up the sides and form a nice edge with your thumb and finger.
- Prick the crust with a fork to prevent bubbling of the pastry during baking.
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Rinse berries and pick out any undesirable ones.
- After the berries have drained pour onto a paper towel to dry somewhat and then pour them into the pastry shell.
- In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.
- Stir in the milk and 1/2 cup whipping cream.
- Whisk until smooth.
- Pour over the berries and bake for 45 minutes.
- After about 30 minutes, check the pie.
- If the edges are getting very brown, cover with strips of aluminum foil.
- Cool on a wire rack and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.
- To make whipped cream, beat 1/2 cup very cold whipping cream until stiff.
- Chill the bowl before whipping the cream to improve the results.
- Add vanilla and 2 tbsp sugar.
- Serve a dollop of whipped cream on each serving of pie.
absolutely yummy pie! will definitely make this one again.
This was the first blueberry pie I ever made or ate, and I was very happy with the easiness of this recipe and the delicious results. Thanks for sharing!
Great Crust! I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white, and e.v.o.o. instead of canola. Oh, and club soda instead of milk. It started out really runny but I added more white flour until I liked the consistency (and a little more sugar), and then used just enough of the dough to cover the pan nicely. This is the lightest and yummiest crust I have ever made (plain white flour pie crusts included!)
