For a delicious blueberry apply pie, try our recipe.

Ingredients

For crust:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour, plus a little extra for dusting
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 frozen stick of butter, sliced into small cubes
  • A quarter cup of icy water

For filling:

  • 16 oz. blueberries, fresh
  • 2 Golden apples, cored, peeled, and diced into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 of sugar
  • A quarter cup of cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tbsp. melted butter, cut into small cubes
  • A single egg
  • 2 tbsp. sugar (turbinado)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400℉.
  • To make the crust, combine the flour and a generous amount of salt in a food processor. To combine, lightly pulse a few times. Sprinkle the butter evenly over the flour and pulse until it resembles small crumbles. Pour the water slowly through the spout till the dough comes together. Remove the disc from the oven and rapidly form it into a disc. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for about 20 minutes before serving.
  • Meanwhile, make the filling by combining the blueberries, sugar, apples, cinnamon, cornstarch, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing basin. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Place the dough on a lightly floured surface after removing it from the refrigerator. Roll the disc gently into a circle that will fit into the pie pan, leaving a 3-inch overhang. It’s best if the dough is around 1/8-inch thick. Trim the dough’s edges with a pizza cutter. To fit the dough into the pie pan, carefully push the dough against the bottom edge and sides of the pan. Pour in the fruit filling, then equally distribute the butter on top of the pie. To make the top of the pie crust, fold the leftover dough that hangs over the edge over the top. Make a ventilation hole in the center.
  • Brush the top with egg wash and then sprinkle with sugar after whisking the egg with 1 teaspoon water.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Allow for at least one hour of resting time before serving to allow the filling to set.
