A blueberry pie is a classic dessert that combines the sweet, slightly tart flavor of blueberries with a flaky, buttery crust.

The filling, made from fresh or sometimes frozen blueberries, is typically thickened with cornstarch or flour to create a rich, syrupy texture. Sugar is added to balance the tartness of the berries, and lemon juice or zest can be included to enhance the flavor. The pie can be topped with a full crust, which is often vented to allow steam to escape, or with a lattice design, which provides a beautiful presentation and allows the vibrant blue-purple color of the filling to peek through. Before baking, the top crust is usually brushed with an egg wash or milk to give it a golden, glossy finish.

Served warm or at room temperature, blueberry pie is often accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream, making it a beloved treat during blueberry season and beyond.
