Finnish Blueberry Pie


This pie, with its sugar cookie-like crust, is simple to make and stores well in the fridge or on the counter during cool weather up to 2 days. It can be served hot, cold, plain, or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream on the side.

1 9x13-inch pie


  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 pints fresh blueberries

  • ½ cup white sugar, or more to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), and line a 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. Beat 3/4 cup sugar with the butter until the mixture is smooth and creamy, and beat in the egg. Add the baking powder, and stir in the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, alternating with a few tablespoons of the milk, until all the flour and milk have been incorporated. The dough will be sticky, like sugar cookie dough. Spread the dough into the prepared baking dish, creating a raised edge of dough around the dish.

  3. Place the blueberries in a bowl with 1/2 cup of sugar, and mash the berries with a potato masher. Spread the blueberry mixture on top of the crust in an even layer.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the crust has browned slightly and the filling is thickened and bubbling, 15 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note

I learned this recipe from a wonderful Finnish woman while living in Finland as a missionary. Because the measurements were in metric, I've converted them to English measurements.
