Fresh blueberry pie makes an appearance only once a year during the summer. When you start with excellent blueberries, the pie doesn't need much else except perhaps a little cornstarch or tapioca flour to thicken the blueberry's natural juices and a squeeze of lemon to brighten the flavors. While I love the classic pie with a lattice crust, sometimes life gets in the way and you'll have to find other creative and delicious ways to get your blueberry fix. This all-American fruit has a short season so take advantage of the small blueberry while you can.
Craving pie for breakfast is perfectly acceptable. On the days your sweet tooth is hankering for blueberry pie and there isn't a slice in sight, a blueberry pie parfait is the next best thing.
Sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day to make a pie from scratch. These blueberry pie bars are your solution. They have all the great flavor of pie without having to bother with making a crust.
The quintessential image of a blueberry pie is dark purple fruit filling peeking from behind a lattice crust. This beautiful pie doesn't need much in the way of a garnish just perhaps a dollop of freshly whipped cream.
