Are you enjoying all of the fresh summer blueberries this year? They looked so good, I just had to make a homemade Fresh Blueberry Crumb Pie! I couldn’t decide if I wanted whipped cream or ice cream, so I served both. It’s too hot outside to be making so many complicated decisions, am I right?

Just look at all those yummy blueberries topped with a cinnamon scented crumb topping and flaky pie crust!! Do you have a fork in your hand? Are you ready to dig in?

You just need simple ingredients to make this recipe:

a large white bowl filled with fresh blueberries, a bowl with crumb topping, small bowls with orange zest, sugar, flour, orange juice and a pie crust in a white pie pan.

You can make your own crust, or purchase one at the grocery store.

How to make a Fresh Blueberry Crumb Pie

For Crust:

Place flour, salt and butter into the bowl of a food processor, or in a bowl and use a pastry cutter and a large bowl.

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • Use a regular 9-inch pie pan, not deep dish. My new pan is apparently deeper than my old pan and it left a gap at the top.
  • Pie can be baked 12 hours ahead of time. Let stand at room temperature until ready to serve.
  • Store leftover pie covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Pie dough can be made up to 2 days ahead and chilled in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • The most important part to remember when making pie crust is to use cold butter and cold water.
