How to Make Blueberry Pie
Begin the recipe by setting the oven to 400 degrees. You will be using a sheet tray that you will place on the lower rack of the oven.
Carefully put one of the pie crusts into a nine-inch by two-inch deep pie plate and allow the crust to overlap the sides. Put it into the fridge until you’re ready to assemble the pie.
Add the blueberries sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, cinnamon, and sea salt into a large bowl and mix together until fully coated, then set aside.
Next, place to second cross on a clean work surface and roll it out. Then, you will be slicing the crossed into one-inch strips. You can use a ruler to measure out the correct lines, then set them aside.
Add the blueberry filling into the pie crust.
Begin laying out the pie crust strips, you will need about five of them. Then, lay them out parallel to each other with a bit of a gap on the pie.
To make this process easier, you will want longer strips for the center and shorter strips for the edge.
Next, you will want to fold every other pie strip over itself, so, it will reveal the filling underneath. Then, place one strip of the pie crust on top. Begin folding the strip’s over and this will make part of a weave. Continue this process with the rest of the strips, then continue until the whole pie has lattice.
If you have trouble following the directions, you can refer to a detailed tutorial with visual instructions.
Start stuffing the edges of each strip under the bottom of the pie. Then, use a pie crimper to seal the edges.
Add the egg and milk into a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Then, using a pastry brush the mixture over the pie crust. Next, add some decorating sugar onto the crust.
Finally, take the prepared pie and place it into the oven to bake for 20 minutes. When the time is up, you will want to create a foil tent to place over the pie. You will then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 35 to 45 minutes until the crust is a light brown, and the filling is bubbly.
Removes the pie from the oven and lets it sit out on the counter for 3-4 hours at room temperature until the filling is set.
