This simple pie is a perfect way to showcase the natural sweetness of flavor of fresh blueberries.

  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 pie crusts for 9” pie pan at room temperature storebought or homemade
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries (about 4 1/2 c.)
  • 1/4 c. white sugar
  • 1/3 c. flour
  • 1/3 c. cream cheese optional
  • 2 tsp. sanding sugar optional


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line 9″ pie pan with one pie crust. Place pie bird in the center of crust if using one.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together clean blueberries, sugar, and flour. Pour into prepared pan around the pie bird (if using one). Drop cream cheese dollops about ½ tsp. each all over the top of the filling.
  4. Cut a small “X” in the center of the top crust if using a pie bird, and lay crust over the filling, allowing the bird’s head to poke through the “X”. (If not using a pie bird, skip the center “X” and cut a few slits in a nice pattern on the top.) Crimp the edges of the crust with your fingers or fork tines, and trim away the excess. Sprinkle sanding sugar evenly over the pie.
  5. Place pie on a baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Allow to cool almost completely before cutting.
