Ingredients

  • 1 Flaky Pie Crust make in advance
  • Filling:
  • 6-7 cups fresh blueberries washed and dried
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup cornstarch
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon salted butter cubed
  • 2 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoon turbinadao sugar (Sugar in the raw)

Instructions

  • To make the crust: Make one recipe of Flaky Pie Crust.
  • Make the filling: In a medium size bowl, mix together blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • To assemble: Heat oven to 425°F. Unwrap 1 pie crust disc. On a lightly floured surface, roll to roughly 12 inches in diameter. Lightly spray a 9 inch deep dish pie pan with cooking spray. Fit crust into pan pressing firmly onto bottom and sides, leaving 1 ½ inch overhang.
  • Pour blueberry filling evenly into bottom crust. Dot all over the top with cubed butter.
  • Roll out remaining crust on same lightly floured surface into roughly an 11 inch round. Use a pizza wheel to cut into 10-12 (½ inch) strips. Lay strips on top of blueberry filling according to length leaving even spacing between each strip.
  • Weave alternating strips into a lattice pattern.Trim excess dough around edge evenly. Fold remaining crust under and tuck.
  • Crimp the edge using the finger pinch method. Brush all over with heavy cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • Cover edges with 2-3-inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning. Bake for 30-35 minutes then remove foil. Continue to bake for another 10-15 minutes or just until crust is golden brown.
  • Cool on cooling rack at least 4 hours. Slice and serve with vanilla ice cream.
