"Slap-yo-mama" Blueberry Crumb Pie

As promised, here's my blueberry pie recipe. We attacked it like a pack of hyenas (or hungry chickens) and this is all that was left for me to photograph.

I promise I will do a tutorial on homemade pastry one of these days, but for the sake of this recipe, I'm just going to trust you to make your own.

  • 5c fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 c + 2T sugar
  • 3 1/2 T flour
  • 1t cinnamon
  • 1 1/2T lemon juice
  • 1/2 c flour
  • 1/2 c sugar
  • 2T butter

Preheat oven to 375.
Place pastry in 10-inch deep dish pie plate. Trim edges.
In mixing bowl, gently combine all filling ingredients.
Pour evenly into pie plate.
Combine flour and sugar for topping and cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Sprinkle evenly over filling. Use your fingers to put nice big crumbly pieces on top.
Bake approx 50 min until filling is bubbly and crust is lightly browned.
Cover edges with foil if pastry is browning too quickly.

Cool and serve with vanilla ice cream!


  1. Oh yum!!!! I don't know whether I love this post or the Chicken Conversation better!! So glad you're back after the long Holiday weekend, Kristin. Your sprinkling of recipes and chicken lore help make the politics easier to consume. Thank you for all the time you take to prepare this blog.

  2. Kristin, you may have seen this before, but if not, I posted a link to a berry pie recipe the other day that was just fabulous.

    Pardon the blog-promoting. I try not to do that, but I thought you might want to give it a rip. It was great.

  3. *Rumble rumble*

    That's the sound of my stomach demanding a piece of that blueberry cheesecake pie concoction.

  4. I'm in!! Where and what time do I show up????

  5. I want in too.....but just couldn't (wouldn't) show up to pick all those berried this time around. Ever hear of blueberry cream pie? A friend in CA says it's his favorite.....but I don't have a clue how to make one, unless it's like making a rhubarb creme....

  6. hahhhhh. "berried" was berries. Methinks I've been too long on politics in the USA Today.

  7. Dear Gail Ellen: I know you are not reading USA Today for your politics. You mean today's politics in the good old US of A, right?

  8. Yum...looks deeelicious. What a sweet way to get your fill of antioxidants. I signed up to follow you. Stop by my place if you're hungry for more pie...calorie free.

  9. Calorie free until you leave, right? I'll be sure to check your site out. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I'm pretty sure that its calorie free even after you leave ;) I absolutely love this recipe - so delish!

    I'm not sure about Rhubarb cream but if you're interested I do have a rather tasty Strawberry-rhubarb pie recipe.

  12. This sounds delicious. We have beautiful blueberries in southern NJ this time of year and I may just try your recipe. Thanks for posting it.
