RECIPE: Blueberry Strawberry Pie


Blueberry Strawberry Pie

pâte brisée for 2 rounds crust
4 cups Blueberries, picked over and rinsed
2 cups Strawberries, roughly chopped
3/4 cups sugar, plus some for sprinkling top
2 tablespoons cup flour, plus some for rolling the dough
2 tablespoons cornstarch
zest of 1 lemon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. The dough should be in a ball in wax paper for 1 hour.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out half the dough, 1/8-inch thick, to fit a 9-inch pie pan. Chill the shell while assembling the filling.

Blueberry Strawberry Pie Filling

In a large bowl, combine the blueberries, strawberries, sugar, flour, cornstarch, lemon zest, cinnamon and ginger. Stir until well combined. Remove the pie shell from the refrigerator and pour in the fruit mixture.

Pie Dough

Roll out the other half of the door on a lightly flour surfaced. Cut into strips to make a lattice topping. Arrange the dough into a lattice pattern. Crimp the edges. Sprinkle sugar over the top.

Lattice Pie Ready for Oven

Bake the pie at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and place foil over the edges because they will be browning lightly. Reduce the temperature of the oven to 375 degrees. Let bake for an additional 35-40 minutes until the crust is golden and the fruit filling has started to bubble. Best served with vanilla ice cream.

First, I want to say I love the title of your blog. Second, great recipe!!

I would let people know that they might want to put some tin foil under the pie as it cooks in the oven. The juice will overflow and make a mess.

Also, putting equal parts of straweberries and blueberries is also very yummy :)

And for the crust, I just bought some frozen pie crust and nobody knew the difference. It tasted just as good and it was a great short cut.

I am eager to try the blueberry strawberry pie recipe, but have a question about it. The recipe says, "2 tablespoons cup flour..." I assume that means just 2 tablespoons of flour, right? The recipe sounds delicious.

Hi there! I have never baked a pie or at least not until yesterday! I went searching online for a strawberry/bluebbery pie recipe so I could pair it with ice cream or cool whip for red, white, and blue for Independence Day! And google brought up your blog! So my husband and I made the pie! We did do 3 cups of ea. instead of 4 and 2 just for the more evenness of color! But we loved this pie! And so did our family! We were celebrating Father's Day late, a birthday, and 4th of July! And it was awesome! Thank you so much for sharing! We just might start baking a little bit more often now- lol!
