How long will it take to prepare the Lemon Blueberry Pie?
Preparation of this pie takes time. Expect to spend roughly 45 minutes preparing the dough and filling, along with assembling the pie before placing it in the oven to let it bake. Although it requires some time and effort, it’s worth it!
How long do I need to let this pie bake?
Bake your pie in the oven for 35 minutes. You should notice it’s ready as the crust gets that perfect golden color. The filling will also begin to bubble up as the pie gets done baking in the oven.
Do I use fresh or frozen blueberries?
Use fresh blueberries for this recipe instead of frozen ones. You’ll need five cups of them. Before you get started, carefully rinse your blueberries in the sink with the faucet running over them. You may also want to sit the blueberries in a bowl of water with a teaspoon of vinegar to clean them before you remove them, pat them dry, and use them to make this delicious Lemon Blueberry Pie.
Do I need to use fresh lemon juice?
Yes! Instead of using bottled lemon juice, be sure to use the juice from a fresh lemon. You’ll need to cut it and remove the seeds before using it. When using fresh juice from a lemon, it naturally enhances the taste of this pie, giving it an excellent flavor that you and your family will thoroughly enjoy.
Can I use a premade pie crust?
I doubled my pate sucree recipe for the pie crust. If you want to save yourself some time, it’s fine to use your favorite premade pie crust. You can select any brand of premade pie crust that you like or want to try. No matter which type of pie crust you decide to use, make sure it’s cooled completely before you add the filling to it.
Can I slice this pie while it’s still hot?
No, you should wait until the Blueberry Lemon Pie cools down. Once it cools down, you can slice it and serve it. Of course, if you like your pie hot, you may then place it in the microwave for a few seconds to get it warm again before you serve it. Don’t forget to add a scoop or two of ice cream on the side to complete the dessert!
How many people will this pie serve?
One of these Blueberry Lemon Pies can serve up to eight people, depending on the size of each slice. Use this recipe to make several pies for your loved ones to enjoy if you’re hosting a special event or attending a cookout with the family.
How can I store the pie?
Cover your pie with a lid or wrap it in plastic wrap and/or aluminum foil before placing it in the fridge. Keep it in the fridge to maximize freshness. It will stay good for up to five days when stored properly and kept cold.

- Blueberry, Feta and Honey Caramelized Onion Pizza
- 5 cups (850 grams) fresh blueberries, divided
- 1/2 lemon, seeds removed and roughly chopped
- Juice from 1/2 lemon
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups (298 grams) sugar, divided
- 1/2 cup (60 grams) flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablesoons butter
- 2 9-inch pie crusts
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
- In a medium pot, combine 2 cups of the blueberries, the chopped lemon, lemon juice, and vanilla extract. Stir in 3/4 cup sugar and cook over medium heat. The blueberries will soften and break down releasing their juice. Cook for 10 m minutes then remove from heat.
- Use an immersion blender (or transfer to a food processor or blender) to puree the blueberries and lemon until smooth. You should see no lemon rind remaining.
- Place the blueberry lemon puree back over low heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
- In a small bowl, combine the remaining 3/4 cup sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle the mixture into the puree and whisk until the returns to a simmer and begins to thicken. This should happen in 1 to 2 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the butter followed by the remaining 3 cups of fresh blueberries.
- Transfer to a bowl to cool completely. Cover the pie filling by pressing plastic wrap down over the mixture. Do not allow air bubbles under the wrap. This will allow a skin to form. Store pie filling in the fridge until ready to use.
- Prepare your pie crusts. Double this Pate Sucree Recipe or use a premade pie crust.
- Line the pie pan with half the crust. Roll out the second half for the lattice top - or leave flat to a basic disk cover.
- Pour in your cold pie filling. Make a fun lattice design. I made three braids and tucked the excess under. Add the milk to the top of the crust and sprinkle on coarse sugar. Bake at 425F for 30 minutes. The top should be golden brown and the filling will bubble.
- Cool completely before slicing. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
