For the pie filling:

  • 1 pie crust , homemade or from a refrigerated pack of two
  • 5 cups (approximately 2 lbs) blueberries , fresh or frozen (see note)
  • cup (134g) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons (32g) cornstarch

For the crumble topping:

  • ¾ cup (93g) all purpose flour
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup (150g) packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons (84g) unsalted butter
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Unroll pie crust and place in a 9” pie plate. Crimp edges as desired. Chill until ready to fill.
  • Make the crumble by combining the nuts, brown sugar, flour and salt in a large bowl. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture forms small crumbs. Set aside.
  • If you're using frozen berries, make sure they're completely defrosted and drained really well.
  • Place blueberries in a large bowl. Toss gently with sugar, lemon, and cornstarch.
  • Remove crust from the refrigerator and fill with berries. Pour the crumble over the top and press down slightly to compact.
  • Place the pie on a cookie sheet to prevent over-spilling onto your oven floor. Tear 2” wide strips of aluminum foil and place them around the outer edge of the crust so it won’t brown too quickly. (Or use a pie crust shield) Bake at 425°F for 10 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350°F for 35-45 more minutes (remove foil from crust about halfway through baking). It’s done when the crust is browned and the topping looks crunchy. Cool completely before slicing.



Note on blueberries:
  • Use fresh if you have them
  • You can use frozen berries but make sure that they're completely defrosted and they have been drained very well. Any excess water will cause your pie to bet wet.
