Frequently asked questions and Tips:

  • You can use fresh or frozen blueberries in this pie.
  • We love this pie with walnuts in the topping. Not a fan? Use pecans or the type of nuts you enjoy. You could even leave them out.
  • I use this pie crust recipe. I’ve also made it with a Pillsbury pie crust. It works fine.

    This is now my go-to blueberry pie.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      YAY!!! We are thrilled you loved it!!!! That is great!

  2. I’m so happy I found this pie! My husband loves blueberries and I’ve made this pie already three times. It’s simple and delicious so I never mind preparing it. Thank you for delivering another family favorite. Your dishes never fail me.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Chrissy,

      So glad you are enjoying this pie! My husband is a huge fan of blueberries and he really enjoys this dessert too.

  3. Steve Black says:

    Made twice now and the filling does not get cooked. Second time I added additional flour. Poked 40 minutes. Filling is very runny when it goes in pie shell. Anyone else have trouble? Pie is runny but delicious!3 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Hi Steve, if your pie is still runny and not cooked, then it isn’t done baking. All ovens differ and you may need to bake yours longer. A baking time is an estimate, it may take your pie 45-50 minutes depending on your oven. It will certainly set up a bit when it cools and you can put it in the fridge to speed up that process, but if you take the pie out of the oven and it isn’t cooked, then it isn’t done. You can watch the video on the recipe page to see how it should look when it comes out of the oven. Also, make sure you aren’t using low fat or fat free sour cream. Hope that helps!

  4. I have everything but walnuts. Has anyone tried using pecans instead?5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I think it would be delicious with pecans. We have a peach one made the same way on our site, made with pecans and we all love it.

  5. Do you unthaw the blueberries? Looks amazing5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      No I don’t.

  6. Delicious! I made it exactly per the recipe and it was SO GOOD!5 stars

  7. I make this pie all summer. It’s absolutely delicious and so easy. One of my favorite recipes!5 stars

  8. Does this need to be refrigerated?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I always refrigerate my fruit pies in the summer because we live in a very hot climate. They should be kept in a cool place.

  9. So you think Greek yogurt would work in place of sour cream?

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I would think it would be fine but I’ve never made it that way. Give it a try!

  10. Katherine Zapsky says:

    What about using raspberries? or cranberries….. I overstocked and my freezer is full of them!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I think that would work fine! 🙂

  11. If I made these in mini pie crusts, how would you adjust the baking time?5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’ve never made this pie in mini pie crusts. I do not know, I would guess half the time of a full pie. You’ll need to watch it. Thanks!

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      I’ve never have, but I guess you could.

  12. Joy Haralick says:

    I have fixed this pie twice now. It is just wonderful. It got rave reviews both times and was devoured quickly. The last time I made it for a sick friend, who said that she thinks it is the best pie she ever had. That just made my day. The recipe is a keeper for sure.5 stars

    1. The Southern Lady says:

      Thank you so much Joy. Now, you have made my day. I am so happy you enjoyed this pie along with your friends. Thank you for letting me know and have a great week.

  13. I tried this today with peaches instead of blueberries. It came out really good. Thank You so much for the recipe!5 stars

  14. Made this pie this morning. Just had a piece topped with a little ice cream. Very good! I used a tsp of almond flavoring to replace one of the tsp of vanilla and almonds in place of the walnuts. I love almond and blueberry together. Thanks for the recipe it’s great!5 stars

  15. Love blueberry pie!! I had made the pie and had bought the frozen pie crust. If anybody uses the frozen pi crust as I did. The deep dish is needed because it will boil over. I am glad I had a cookie sheet under it. Other then that it was deliicious!!!5 stars

  16. Could just enjoy a slice of the delicious looking Blueberry Pie
    Will have a go at making one
