So far I heard from different people include my husband that it is the best blueberry pie they’ve ever tried before. Now, you really want to try this pie, right? I Hope you do. I will teach you how to make it step by step. You can see that it’s very easy and simple to make this fancy looking pie. Let’s get started.
Yield: 1 9-inch Pie
Short Korean Lesson
- HuSik (후식) = Dessert
- GanSik (간식) = Snack
Pie Crust Ingredients:
- 2¼ Cups All Purpose Flour
- ¾ Cup Salted Butter
- 6-7 Tbsp Cold Water
- ½ tsp Salt
- 5 Cups Frozen Blueberries
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 5 Tbsp Cornstarch
- 1 tsp Lemon Juice (Optional)
- ¼ tsp Salt
- 1 Tbsp Salted Butter
Get about 5 cups of frozen blueberries. Compared to fresh blueberries, you can usually get frozen blueberries a lot cheaper and the flavor and texture of the pie will be just as good as using fresh blueberries. Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Put the frozen blueberries in a pot along with 5 Tbsp of cornstarch, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp of lemon juice (optional), and ¼ tsp salt. Mix everything gently so that the blueberries will get covered with cornstarch. The cornstarch will help to thicken the pie filling.
Cook the blueberry mixture for about 15 minutes on medium-high. Occasionally stir it so that it will not burn to the bottom. After it starts to boil, you will see the filling gets thicker and thicker.
While the pie filling is cooking, you can prepare the pie dough. In a large mixing bowl, add 2¼ cups all-purpose flour, ¾ cup salted butter, and ½ tsp salt. Mix the flour and other ingredients with a fork so that the butter will make crumbles.
Slowly add 6-7 Tbsp of cold water to the flour and mix everything to knead the dough.
Once the dough is formed, divide it into 2. Shape each piece into a ball.
Roll out a dough ball with a rolling pin. It is nice to have this silicone mat when you bake something. How thin and big should the rolled dough be?
This is how I measure mine. We will make a 9-inch pie, so obtain 1 9-inch pie dish. Put your pie dish upside down like this. Your dough should be about 1 inch bigger all around the pie dish.
Transfer the pie crust into the pie dish.
Trim the edge of the pie crust with scissors and crimp the rim with your fingertips and knuckles.
By now, the pie filling will be done. Turn off the heat.
Pour the hot pie filling into the pie crust.
Chop 1 Tbsp worth of salted butter into little cubes and sprinkle them on top of the hot pie filling. The butter will melt and make a thin surface over the pie filling – that will help you weave the strips of pie crust for the lattice on top.
Roll the other piece of the pie dough to about the same size as the first one. Move the rolled dough to wax paper and cut the dough into ½ inch strips with a pizza cutter.
Weave the strips together. This is how I do it. Please check the video for this part.
Melt a little bit of butter in some milk. I will use it to brush the pie crust. This will help you get a nicely golden brown crust on top.
Put the pie in the preheated oven and bake it for about 30 minutes at 425 F. Depending on your oven, the baking time can vary.
After 30 minutes, you will get this delicious and pretty looking blueberry pie.
If you have somebody to show your love or appreciation, this sweet pie can be a perfect treat for them. Please try it someday and share your opinion with us.
Aeri’s Tip: When you roll out the pie crust, if you put some parchment paper on top, it will make the pie crust surface nice and smooth. It also makes it easy to transfer the pie crust into the pie plate by removing the paper in the other direction like this. Or the paper can be used as a cutting board when you need to cut the pie crust into strips in this video. A pizza cutter is a great tool to cut pie crust into strips.
