I had a man propose to me after tasting this pie at a party. Yes, it's that good. The secret is my grandmother's super-flaky pie crust recipe. Best with fresh blueberries or dewberries.

  • Mix 2 cups self-rising flour, oil, and water together in a bowl until pie crust dough is well-mixed; divide into 2 balls. Roll each ball between 2 pieces of waxed paper until flattened and about 9 inches in diameter. Turn 1 piece of dough over pie dish and peel off top piece of waxed paper. Trim crust if needed. Set remaining dough aside.

  • Combine blueberries, sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, lemon juice, and salt together in a bowl until evenly mixed; pour into the pie crust. Cover blueberry filling with remaining dough, crimping the edges together. Arrange butter cubes on top crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is thick and crust is golden brown, about 50 minutes.

Very, VERY good! I used 2 pints of blueberries that I had in the freezer (did not thaw them first). The only thin I think I would do differently next time is to reduce the sugar a bit (maybe by 1/4 cup), b/c I thought it was VERY sweet, but that's just my opinion Everyone else LOVED it as is). This was easy to make and the family really enjoyed it. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :) Read More

Used my own crust recipe -- not sure about vegetable oil since I've always used shortening. And 2 cups of berries barely covered the bottom of my 9" pie plate so I doubled the amount. But forgot to double the flour so it was real juicy. I'll try it again though. Read More

This is my first time making a piecrust. This was so good and making the crust was easy- I'm not buying crust anymore. The recipe was easy. I substituted Stevia for sugar and it came out great. Thanks! Read More

I ve tried blueberry pie pretty much everywhere I ve gone. This recipe is THE FREAKIN BEST!!!! The pie crust is amazing as well and so easy. I use it for all my recipes! Adjust the sugar to the sweetness of your berries. I only use fresh blueberries and I doubled the amount. If you have tart blueberries add sweet strawberries and the flavors combine for an amazing result. Thanks again for this delicious recipe!! Read More

This pie brought rave reviews from my family. The only change I made was increasing the blueberries to 4 cups. I did not add any more flour and the pie was the best I ve ever had. Next time I m going to add peaches to the blueberries! The crust was heavenly and it s going to be my go to crust for all my pies. Read More
