Blueberries + Custard = Yummy Pie!

4 Jul

It is blueberry season which means blueberry pie! Blueberry pie is one of my favorites but I was on mission to find a recipe that was a little different and I found it. I found it on the blog The Girl Who Ate Everything; it has custard which I love and and a streusel topping, what could be better than that?!

The only thing that I changed was that I made my crust from scratch, she uses a store bought which makes it super easy. You can find the recipe for the crust on the blog The Gracious Wife. Either way, it is delicious and a big hit with pie lovers.

Ok, so my crust needs work….I have a shrinkage problem that I can’t seem to figure out. Any suggestions people?

Ingredients:

1 cup sour cream

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 Tbs flour

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

2 1/2 cups blueberries

1 (9 inch) pie crust

Streusel topping:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 flour

1/4 cup softened butter

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl mix sour cream, sugar, flour, egg, vanilla and salt until combined. Add blueberries and stir gently until coated. Spoon filling into unbaked pie crust.

Bake for 25 minutes.

While pie is baking prepare topping by putting the brown sugar and flour into a medium bowl, add butter. Mix (you can use your hands) together until it resembles coarse sand. Add the pecans.

After the pie has baked for 25 minutes sprinkle the streusel topping all over the top of the pie, bake an additional 15 to 20 minutes until pie is set and nicely browned. To avoid the crust burning use a crust shield or tin foil for the last several minutes.

Remove from oven and let sit for at least 15 to 20 minutes and then enjoy! And of course with ice cream or fresh whipped cream it is even better!
