Star-Studded Blueberry Pie Recipe
- 9 inches Pastry for Pie
- 4 Cups Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
- 1½ Cup Sugar
- ½ Cup Quick-Cooking Tapioca
- 1 tbsp Lemon Juice or White Vinegar
- ¼ tbsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Butter
- First, we have to take a wooden board and roll the dough over it to make the pie crust. We should roll half of the dough to a circle of ⅛ inch thickness and place it over a 9-inch pie plate. Trim the remaining pastry with scissors. Then, refrigerate it for 30 minutes. Then keep the oven heated at 400 degrees.
- In a separate bowl, mix the blueberries, tapioca, lemon juice and salt, gently and thoroughly. Let the mix rest for at least 15 minutes.
- Then, fill the pie pastry with the blueberry mix after you’ve added butter. At 400 degrees, bake it in the oven. Then, bring the heat down to 350 degrees and bake for 10 more minutes. Keep the edges loosely covered to prevent burning.
- Again, bake for 15-20 minutes on the lower rack of the oven till the blueberries become swollen and burst out. Then, cool on a wire rack.
- Roll the other half of the dough to about ⅛ inch thick. Use the star-shaped cutter to cut the dough into small stars of the same size. Put a baking sheet over it and bake it for 5-10 minutes at 350 degrees until a golden brown color is seen. Take them out and let them cool for some time. After this, put those stars on the pie in the desired pattern.
