Best Blueberry Patriotic Pie Recipe

Two of the best blueberry pie recipe pies on a baking sheet

The Best Blueberry Pie Recipe. Simply the best blueberry pie ever! Loaded with fresh, healthy blueberries and a hint of lemon this recipe will earn its place as a family favorite. Even better the blueberries taste like fruit, not overly sweet jam. It’s a keeper!

Pie of any kind is a hit here on the ranch. “Hot pie and cold pie” are laughingly the most popular choices. We even had a pie table at our wedding reception. The tradition continues with the Park County Cattle women pie fundraiser at our annual bull sale in February. Montana is pie country!

It’s no question that blueberry pie can be tricky. Many recipes have a jam or jelly like sweet consistency in the filling. Not this blueberry pie recipe! It is amazing. The fruit retains it tart flavor. Is it the hint of lemon? Or cinnamon? You will have to taste it and report back.

Better yet, make this blueberry pie year round with frozen blueberries. Fresh or frozen, who can tell? I always have a Costco bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer just in case I need a fruit pie at a moment’s notice. This is my “Go-To” fruit pie recipe.

A blueberry pie to rock your “pie-loving” world! Enjoy!
