Blueberry Cream Pie

Blueberry Cream Pie

It is blueberry season and this blueberry cream pie is the perfect recipe for summer. It is always a struggle to find refreshing summer treats. Of course there is always ice cream, sorbet, or just fruit, but I’m talking baked desserts. I love pie recipes for warm, double crust pies that you serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream, but this chilled pie really hits the spot on a hot day. This is the best pie I’ve has this summer- I hope you make it too!

Blueberry Cream Pie

Reasons I love this pie:

  • It is incredibly easy to make.
  • It is served chilled which makes it super refreshing on a scorching day.
  • It could be adapted with a number of different fruits and berries, which makes this my new go to pie recipe. This version uses plump fresh blueberries, but I think peaches would be fab as well!
  • It uses a traditional pie crust but you could also make it with a homemade graham cracker crust if you prefer.
  • It’s the perfect dessert to bring to family gatherings or picnics.
  • If you’re going to bake pie in the summer- good news: this blueberry cream pie not only uses seasonal ingredients but is light and refreshing!

Blueberry Cream Pie

Making this pie is as simple as this, start with your favorite unbaked pie crust. Toss into it 3 cups of blueberries, Top it with the cream mixture which is basically just cream, sour cream, sugar, vanilla extract, a bit of flour and lemon juice and lemon zest.

Then, while the pie is baking, put a small or medium saucepan over medium heat and melt some butter. Add it to flour and brown sugar to make a simple crumb topping. Add the crumb topping to the top of the pie, and bake it a bit more. Let it cool and after a few hours for chilling it is ready to be devoured. The result? A creamy blueberry pie full of delicious blueberry flavor with a touch of creamy lemon.

(The original recipe suggested letting it chill in the fridge overnight, but since I have already admitted how much I hate overnight steps, I stuck it in the freezer for 2 hours and in the fridge for an hour or so until it was ready to be eaten. It was gooey, berry perfection.)

Supplies needed for Blueberry Cream Pie:

  • 9-inch pie dish
  • medium bowl
  • small bowl
  • small saucepan for melting butter

  1. Such a pretty pie! I hate turning on my oven as well because I am convinced my A/C unit was the smallest possible for the square feet of my apartment. It cannot battle the 100 degree temps we’ve been having so no matter what I have it set to, it’s a little over 80. But this pie looks totally worth some extra heat suffering.

  2. What a beautiful pie, Audra! It’s funny.. I actually prefer cold pies. I like my pumpkin pie at room temperature and my cherry pie as cold leftovers with some vanilla ice cream. I bet this pie is fantastic right out of the fridge. Blueberry pie is also one of my favorites. :)

    I like the idea of this cold pie and think I will have to try it!

    I completely relate to the dilemma of summertime baking, which compelled me to trade in my oven mits and rolling pin last night for the ice cream maker. Who knew roasted strawberry and buttermilk ice cream could be so good?!

    Cheers!

  4. This pie looks so good, perfect for your summer, ut I will make it even we are in winter here, I love blueberries and saw some fresh ones in the market.

  15. This is a very good pie not only does it look good but also has an amazing taste:)

  17. Somehow the salt and sugar were not mentioned in the instructions at #3? I added the sugar but not the salt, otherwise followed the recipe as written. Pie is currently in the fridge waiting to be served as dessert after dinner.

      1. Hi Audra,

        Initially says vanilla but I couldn’t find how much? Also assuming the vanilla goes into the custard?
