Semi-Homemade Blueberry Pie

Blueberry Pie 31

Last weekend I made this delicious semi-homemade blueberry pie for Sunday dinner with the family and it was a hit (even among non-blueberry lovers!)

If you’re planning ahead for 4th of July or Father’s Day, you can’t go wrong with this yummy dessert!

Blueberry Pie 25

Ingredients

Crust

This is where I went semi-homemade with this recipe 🙂 I purchased the Pillsbury pie crust, but if you’re interested in making it from scratch, check out this recipe for the crust.

Filling

  • 6 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp milk

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Take out the pre-made crust and let sit out to become room temperature (this will make it easier to work with).
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon and blueberries – I recommend mixing together the dry ingredients in the bowl and then slowing adding in the blueberries to easily mix it together. You want to lightly coat the blueberries in the dry mixture.
  4. After blueberries are coated in mixture, set aside and take one pie crust and line an un-greased pie pan with the dough. Remove any excess dough from the edges.
  5. Pour blueberry mixture into the crust-lined pie dish.
  6. Cut up the butter into small chunks and sprinkle on top of the blueberries.
  7. Cover the blueberries with the second pie crust. Press the edges of the crust together with your fingers to create a pinch or crimp at the edges.
  8. Whisk egg and milk together to create the egg wash, brush the top crust with the mixture. Score the pie on the top of the crust to allow it to breath.
  9. Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees, then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and let it bake for an additional 30 to 40 minutes. Add a piece of tin foil below the dish in the oven to make clean up easy if any thing spills over.
  10. Transfer to wire rack and let cool. Cool completely before serving.

To really indulge, serve it with ice cream and enjoy!

Although summer doesn’t technically start until next week, it certainly feels like it has arrived here in south Florida! How do you plan on kicking off summer?

Summer Essentials.jpg

It’s Friday and summer is here! This month’s Simply Loving round up includes all of my summer faves!

  1. Champagne Stopper – perfect way to keep your bubbly fresh, it’s like uncorking the bottle for the first time!
  2. Sand Spiker Drink Holder – a must have for summer days at the beach. Never have a sandy cup again (insert alleluia emoji!)
  3. Keepsake App – this is a great app for turning all of your photos into beautifully framed prints. I love how I can do it all from my phone!
  4. Pasta Salad Recipe – this easy-to-make, lightweight (no mayo!) pasta salad has been a huge hit this summer. I mean how can you go wrong with an Italian Caprese Pasta Salad?
  5. 4th of July Hot Dog Boats – OMG! This is the cutest thing ever!! Seriously, can’t get enough of this, can’t wait to use them for a festive celebration!
  6. Bamboo Multi-Device Charging Station – I prefer to have a place for everything and this organizer is perfect for keeping all my devices in one spot and minimizes the excess wires!
  7. Sun Protection – I mean it’s summer time and we live in Florida… this is a necessity for summer time. This is by far my favorite sun screen for the body and this one is my favorite for my face.
  8. 168 Hours – this is on my summer reading list for sure! Who doesn’t want to learn how to gain more time throughout the day and accomplish all the goals without sacrificing time with family and enjoying the good stuff?!
  9. 10-Minute Workout – I love being able to get in a quick 10-minute workout with these 3 moves (especially when it’s bikini season!)
  10. Yoga on-the-go – I know I’ve talked about this before, but this is great for all the summer travel because you can take yoga classes with you where ever you go. I’ll be using this in Dallas in two weeks!

What items are you loving so far for summer?! Enjoy the weekend and chase the sun!
