Easy Summer Pie Recipes |  Try Amanda's Creamy Blueberry Pie

Are you looking for a pie recipe that tastes like summer and is easy enough to have the kids help too?

This Creamy Blueberry Pie (you guys, it has sour cream in it!!!)  looks and tastes like the kind of thing only a person with an advanced degree in Pinterest could successfully create, but this blueberry pie recipe is as easy as… well, you know. Pie. Even so, if your kiddos like to join you in the kitchen like mine, this is one they will have fun helping with too! 

Assemble the kitchen and the kids!  

If your kids are young (or can't be counted on for their lengthy attention spans), have them focus on the steps kids love the most – measuring out (ahem, playing with) the flour and other dry ingredients! The blueberries can be dried off once washed or if they are frozen, with a little help from mom they can be set on a paper towel until partially thawed. Lay all your ingredients out and start putting your creamy blueberry pie together! This step makes me so happy!

Creamy Blueberry Pie 

Pie Mixture
  • 3 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 unbaked 9" deep-dish pie shell
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. flour
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
Topping
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. butter or margarine

 

Place  blueberries in pastry shell. If frozen, set out on paper towels until partially thawed; set aside. Combine 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup flour and salt. Add eggs and sour cream, stirring until blended. Spoon over berries. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle evenly over sour cream mixture. Bake at 350° for 50 to 55 minutes, or until lightly browned. Garnish with vanilla ice cream.  Serves 8.

Fruit pies are great, but this one has a little twist!

Dense cream pies are yummy, but summer calls for fresh, tart, sweet goodness, don't you agree? This Creamy Blueberry Pie has the freshness of summer and a touch of that creamy goodness that we crave around here! It makes this classic pie a bit more enjoyable. I think just being together in the kitchen with the kids adds a little sweetness to this pie too...

  • Amanda, thank you so much for this awesome recipe! I tried it out with my two girls aged, 3 and 5, and they basically did it all on their own! We made two small pies and are making it again this week. Keep the wonderful recipes coming! Blessings, Ashley

  • That blueberry pie looks amazing!!! I’m actually overwhelmed with blueberries and had thought of making syrup.

    My favorite summer pie is LIght and Fruity Pie:
    1 (3oz) pkg cherry flavored jello
    2/3 cup boiling water
    2 cups ice cubes
    1 (8oz) container cool whip, thawed
    1 jar maraschino cherries, drained, & halved
    1 Graham cracker crust
    Dissolve jello in boiling water, stirring about 3 minutes. Add ice cubes and stir until jello thickens (about 2-3 minutes). Remove unmelted ice. Using a wire whisk, blend in cool whip until smooth. Fold in fruit. Chill until mixture will mound. Spoon into crust and chill 3 hours.
    Also like using orange flavored jello, with jar of tangerines drained and chopped.
