Blueberry Streusel Pie

I've made us some favorite Blueberry pie for today and serving it with some blueberry tea that a friend brought from Canada last year.  The lime hydrangea is my vase is from a plant that my daughter bought for me.  Mary from Home Is Where The Boat Is

I love scenes on teacups and this was from a teacup exchange. The teacup is called Lakeview, and it's from Nasco, made in Japan.

Isn't this a pretty setting?


I crocheted two granny squares from leftover yarn that I had made a baby blanket from to make this tea cozy.

Yield: 6-8 slices

Blueberry Streusel Pie

This is a family favorite, and I hope you try it!


  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 2 pints blueberries, rinsed & drained
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3 T. cornstarch
  • 3 T. water
  • 1 t. finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 T. unsalted butter
  • Crumb Topping:
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 1 c. flour
  • 6 T. unsalted butter, melted


  • For Filling:
  • Combine 1 cup of the blueberries with the sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is melted & the mixture is very liquid, about 5 minutes.
  • Combine the cornstarch & water in a small bowl & stir into the blueberry & sugar mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat, until the mixture comes to a boil, thickens, & becomes clear. Add the lemon zest & the spices & stir. Now add the remaining 3 cups of blueberries. Cool.
  • For the Topping:
  • Combine the sugar & flour in a bowl; add the butter & stir evenly. Set the mixture aside for 5 minutes, then use your fingertips to break into 1/4"-1/2" crumbs.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Pour the cooled filling into the the unbaked pie crust. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the blueberry mixture.
  • Place the pie in the oven & immediately turn the oven down to 375 degrees. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool the pie on a rack.
