A wonderful alternative to your typical pie. Best if served warm, topped with milk and sugar.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)

  • In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough in half and shape into balls. On floured surface, roll from center to edges into 12 inch circle. Avoid rolling too thin.

  • Spread approximately 2 cups blueberries on each rolled pastry, or enough to make a single layer of blueberries leaving a 2 inch border. Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar and slices of butter.

  • Roll pastry like a jelly-roll, tucking the ends as you roll, and place on a cookie sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until golden brown.

I cannot recommend this recipe. The blueberries did not stay in the crust when I rolled it and everything spilled out. For ease I rolled it on a cookie sheet. The dough rolled out fine it was a little dry (and that was after adding extra water)but the blueberries would not stay in! I had to mold it with my hands. The end result looked like a pie that had fallen on the floor. Bland tasting too. Thanks anyway. Read More

I used a refrigerated pie crust and just eyeballed the amount of blueberries. I also substituted Splenda for the sugar. It came out great. We enjoyed it with vanilla ice cream. I did only have to bake it for about 45 minutes until it was golden. I will probably make it again since it was so quick and easy to put together using the pre-made crust. Read More

I'll tell you why I loved this recipe: for starters, my granny used to make these. Yes, the insides are supposed to spill out. I usually scoop it on top of it and serve with homemade whipped cream or ice cream. It's a PIG, sloppy & messy! I've taken these to farmers markets with rave reviews. People love them! Try cutting back on the filling if ya'll are worried about the prettiness. Country cookin is all about simplicity. Don't make this harder than it has to be. Good job! Read More

Rather than using store bought pie crust I used crescent roll dough. It was great. I had crescents filled with blueberry goodness and everyone loved them! Read More

I made a massive mess out of this and my berries leaked out and burned. My piggie family managed to eat most of it anyway but I don't think I will attempt again. Read More

What a great idea - rolled up pie! For some reason my kids didn't like it but I think most kids would. I tried it with the milk and sugar when it was warm and that was good but it was much better the next day cold. I will make this again. Read More

As another reviewer pointed out this does look like a pie that's been dropped on the floor. But it is tasty nonetheless! I used strawberries rather than blueberries plus a dash of lemon zest. I was worried about the strawberries making it too runny so I mixed the berries zest and sugar then let it sit in a bowl for 30 min. I drained off the excess fluid spread it onto the crust then made my husband roll it up for me. I read the reviews saying it was hard to roll so I wasn't taking any chances. It rolled up very nicely. Mine baked for about 40 min and I served it with vanilla ice cream. Yum! Will definitely be making this oozing splat of goodness again. Read More
