Fresh Blueberry Pie

Sharing is caring!

Pie, oh sweet blueberry pie! It can be quite an elusive dessert if you’re easily intimidated by crust, but man are the possibilities endless. Chocolate cream, lemon meringue, peach, pecan, blueberry, strawberry… I’ve gotta stop, or I’ll start drooling and/or instantly begin gaining weight just thinking about them. Now, I haven’t always been a big pie fan, apart from the traditional pumpkin and pecan during the holidays. I’m more of a cobbler (like my peach and strawberry cobblers!) girl. My mom wasn’t a big pie maker. She can flat-out make a coconut cake, but for whatever reason, we never thought to have pie for dessert. Feel sorry for my pie-less childhood, but enjoy this fresh blueberry pie recipe!

How to Make No-Bake Blueberry Pie

Fast forward twenty(ish) years, and since my pie-knowledge was lacking, I have literally begged my friends to teach me how to make some of the most delicious pies. I kid you not. Over the years, I have shamelessly invited friends over and asked them to teach me how to make (enter name of food item here). In fact, some of my favorite recipes come from the kitchens of friends. This can lead me down a whole rabbit trail of why I think it’s essential to have solid and real friendships, but I’ll save that for another day.

My sweet friend Christy, who I actually met on a friend “blind date” when we first moved to the area, introduced me to blueberry pie. (Strangely enough, this was not the only time friends have “set me up” to meet other friends. What are people trying to tell me?)  Either way, Christy lives in a beautiful historic town about 45 minutes away where there are fabulous blueberry farms. In our earlier days of motherhood, the kids and I made that drive quite a bit to visit. During one of those visits, Christy shared this incredible blueberry pie recipe with me.unbaked crust

So without further ado, here is the friendship-building recipe that I’ve been using for quite a few years, and if you aren’t a big fan of blueberries, you can use strawberries or peaches that are fresh or frozen. So, it’s definitely versatile! I love that frozen blueberries can be used for this pie. Use a homemade or store bought pie crust; it’s delicious either way. Think about what sweet friend you can share this recipe with, or maybe you’ll luck out, and they will make it for you. Enjoy!
