Last week my three-year-old son Gus asked me: “Mom, you make me a blueberry pie?” Of course I immediately ordered the ingredients. This one was made with frozen wild blueberries and definitely had a fresh texture. You can use any gluten free pie crust doe this! This one is my go to. And my favorite gluten free flour (King Arthur) can be purchased here: https://amzn.to/3c8lneK.
- Three cups frozen organic wild blueberries
- Three tablespoons corn starch or arrowroot powder
- 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup honey, to taste
- 1 tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
- A dash of sea salt
- 1 apple, peeled and grated (I used honey crisp)
- Five teaspoons butter
- 1 egg (for an egg wash before baking)
After rolling out one half of the crust and lining a pie pan with it, mix all of the filling ingredients except the butter. The apple helps it hold together, but you won’t taste it or see it in the final product. Pour the filling into the prepared crust. Drop the teaspoons of butter into the filling, evenly spaced.
Add your top crust. I did mine in a lattice style (Here’s a tutorial!). Brush the beaten egg over the top of the crust with a pastry brush. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until it’s golden brown. Let cool completely.
This pie has a very fresh texture! If you like more of a jelly-like filling, you can cook the ingredients in a saucepan for ten minutes before filling the pie.
