- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
- Put frozen blueberries in a pot along with sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, and salt. Mix gently so that the blueberries will get covered with cornstarch; the cornstarch will help to thicken the pie filling. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally so it will not burn to the bottom, about 15 minutes.
- While the pie filling is cooking, combine flour, 3/4 cup butter, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Mix with a fork until crumbles form. Slowly add cold water and mix until incorporated, adding more water as needed.
- Divide dough into 2 equal pieces. Shape each piece into a ball. Roll out 1 dough ball with a rolling pin into a 10-inch circle. Transfer pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish. Trim the edge of the pie crust with scissors and crimp the rim with your fingertips and knuckles.
- Remove pie filling from heat and pour into the pie crust. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon butter pieces on top of the filling; the butter will melt and make a thin surface over the filling that will help you weave the strips of crust for the lattice on top.
- Roll the top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 1/2-inch strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Start with the longest strips and lay the first 2 in an X in the center of the pie. Alternate horizontal and vertical strips, weaving them in an over-and-under pattern. Use the shortest strips for the edges of the lattice. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and flute the crust.
- Melt 1 teaspoon butter in milk by microwaving in a microwave-safe cup in 10-second intervals. Brush over the top of the pie to get a nice golden brown crust.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- To measure your crust, put your pie dish upside down on top of the rolled-out dough. Your crust should be about 1 inch bigger all around the pie dish.

Will not rate this. Filling was so soupy I had to spoon it into my pie shell with a slotted spoon. Would not recommend.
I have never made blueberry pie before, so I was nervous, plus I am trying to follow a gluten, dairy and sugar free diet - but this turned out amazing! I made gluten and dairy free pastry, and ...
