Happy National Blueberry Pie Day!
When it comes to fruit pies, apple pies come to my mind first. But, as long as it’s national blueberry pie day, I suppose I should bake one and enjoy sweet and delicious pie!
We love blueberries, so as soon as I bring them back home, they last only one day. We enjoy them for our dessert, and probably for the morning snack, and that’s it. So I always dream about going blueberry picking…According to my research, here in the Bay Area, the blueberry picking season is starting from May and it lasts until late June…isn’t it too short!? I should plan to go one soon.
Fresh blueberries don’t last in your fridge that long. Hopefully my blueberry pie ideas can save them and allow you to enjoy sweet yummy blueberries.

- Preheat an oven to 375°F.
- Prepare the crust. Spread pie crust by using a rolling pin. By using a glass, cut the dough in a perfect circle.
- Flip your muffin tin and cover with the circle shaped dough. Bake it in the oven for 10 min.
- Combine blueberries, water and sugar together in a pan and bring it to medium high. When it starts to boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer until the water is almost boiled up.
- Remove the crust from the oven and let them cool.
- Place the blueberry filling in the crust and garnish with mint. Enjoy!
Adjust the sugar level depending on how sweet your blueberries are!
Mmm, sweet yummy! I still love apple pies better, but I’m not saying it’s bad or something. I should make it my regular pie for a once in a while recipe.
So speaking about blueberry picking, I sometimes find wild blueberries in my hiking trails. I’m always too busy trying to take beautiful photos for the scenery, but my dinner buddy is very good at finding edible plants in trails. We went to Mt. Rainier in Washington, one of the trails had huuuge area where wild blueberries are growing. As soon as we noticed, we started to argue why we didn’t bring any bucket with us for a min, and looked around…what we found was a family of 5~8 happily picking wild blueberries. All members had a huge bucket in each hand. Well, now I wonder if Mt. Rainier is well-known for berry picking.
