A is for Apple Blueberry Pie

A is for Apple Blueberry Pie

I am joining in for another round of blogging through the alphabet. I don’t have a theme this time. I am just going to write about what comes to mind for that letter.

To start I have a recipe that I have wanted to share. It is my grandmother’s. It may seem strange to put these two fruits together, but it tastes great. My grandmother use to make her own crust, but I have not mastered the crust making yet, so I buy store bought refrigerated pie crust. Below is the recipe. Let me know if you try it.

Apple Blueberry Pie (click for printable recipe)
  • 3 cups sliced apples
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp butter cut into small pieces
  • 2 9-inch pie crusts (pre-made or homemade)
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  • In a bowl combine the apples, blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt.
  • Let stand for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Place one pie crust in the bottom of a deep dish pie pan.
  • Pour the apple-blueberry mixture into the pie pan.
  • Dot the top with butter.
  • Cover with other pie crust, sealing the edges.
  • Cut steam holes on top and place on baking sheet (in case of spills).
  • Place in oven and bake for 40 minutes.
  • Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another 40 minutes.
  • Stick toothpick in middle to be sure apples are tender.
  • Let cool before serving.
  • Serve with ice cream if desired.
