homemade blueberry pie recipe that includes an estimate of the carbohydrate content. Keep in mind that the values may vary based on specific brands of ingredients and serving sizes.
Homemade Blueberry Pie:
– 2 pre-made pie crusts (for the top and bottom crusts)
– 4 cups fresh blueberries
– 1 cup granulated sugar
– 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
– 1 tablespoon lemon juice
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– 1/4 teaspoon salt
– 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
– 1 egg (for egg wash)
– 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)
1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Stir gently until the blueberries are coated evenly.
3. Roll out one pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Press it gently against the bottom and sides of the dish.
4. Pour the blueberry mixture into the pie crust, spreading it out evenly. Dot the top with the small pieces of butter.
5. Roll out the second pie crust and place it on top of the blueberry filling. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges, and crimp the edges to seal the pie.
6. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water to make an egg wash. Brush the top crust with the egg wash using a pastry brush. This will give the pie a nice golden color.
7. Using a sharp knife, make a few small slits on the top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
8. Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips, and bake it in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the blueberry filling is bubbling.
9. Once baked, remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely on a wire rack before serving.
