My, oh my, I loved this pie! I had a couple of bags of frozen blueberries that had migrated to the rear of my freezer; I hesitate to say how long they had been in there. But after chipping them out of their frosty prison, and rinsing the ice crystals off them, they worked just fine. I sprinkled some cinnamon over the blueberries, and I used reduced fat sour cream and added some vanilla to the filling. Also, I used brown sugar instead of white for the topping. This pie came out beautiful and delicious. I imagine it would be even better with fresh blueberries. Thanks for the recipe!
I wonder if I did something wrong...this pie turned out way too sweet. I think I should have used just half of the topping. Just too sweet and overpowered the good filling of blueberrys. Easy on the sugar!!
I'm 16 years old and this was one of my first attempts at pie making. Not only is this recipe easy, but it also tastes great. My suggestion for those trying this recipe for the first time- easy on the sugar.It will overpower the taste of te pie. Instead use a little more sour cream(I used light sour cream for nutritional purposes) in the wet mixture. For the dry topping mixture I added a few dashes of cinnamon,2 tbs more of butter and didnt use all of the mixture.It made all the difference. Make sure you bake the pie about 10 minutes longer then the recipe calls for so the crust turns golden brown and the pie stays together when cutting it later.There are 6 people in my family and most of them picky eaters-this pie satisfied everyones taste and I am definately making this again.
Lets say you're escaping from LV 426 but right before you do, a warrior steals this Creamy Blueberry Pie. He takes it down to sub level 2 in the atmospheric processor and places it in a cocoon. A nuclear explosion is about to go off and you only have 14 minutes to reach minimum safe distance all while the Queen is right behind you. DO YOU GO AFTER YOUR STOLEN PIE? Yes. You should also go after it even if the blueberries have been substituted for a mixed berries. Because that's delicious too. After you eat, you might be wondering if you can dream. My answer would be: I-Firmative.
I just made this the other day. (I'm testing recipes for Thanksgiving; my sister requested blueberry pie.) This has just made the menu!!!! I used 24 oz partially thawed, undrained (oops) frozen blueberries. The second I spooned the egg/sour cream mixture over the berries they finished melting and I ended up having to scoop some out and not use all of the filling (no biggee). I also didn't use all of the topping, this recipe makes a lot. I followed the advice of previous reviewers made the following changes: used 3/4 cup white sugar, 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon in the filling; in the topping I used half white and half brown sugars (for total of 1/2 cup), and added 1 tsp. cinnamon. The results were wonderful (allowing for the non-draining mistake). I did have to cook longer than called for (about 20 minutes more). The pie holds together well when cut (after cooling a couple of hours, of course). Not too sweet, not sour creamy at all... Beware this goes fast so you might want to bake up 2 of them!!!!!
HELPFUL TIPS FOR THIS BLUEBERRY COFFEECAKE IN PIE FORM: ...yep, this is more like a nice coffee cake with a pretty presentation. I am in total agreement with the user who said the sugar needed to be reduced to 3/4C sugar (i like sweet and this was PLENTY), add 1t vanilla, and up the sour cream to 2/3C. Don't worry, you won't taste the sour cream!! I also had to add 10 min to the baking time (just whenever my pie crust was nice and golden). For the topping: I did 1/4C sugar and 1/4C brown sugar, and I CANNOT imagine using all of it. I used enough to cover the top nicely. I also used more like 3T of COLD butter cut in instead of the 4T (1/4C on a stick of butter).
I LOVED this pie. During blueberry season you can't miss with this one. I only ever use frozen pie crust (I'm lazy) and it was SOOOO good. I agree with the following comments from others:
1. Add vanilla to the sour cream
2. Add pinch of cinnamon to the topping
3. Almost tastes better the next day cold or room temp.
My next variation on this pie will to make it with strawberries or a mixed berry. Try Trader Joe's frozen berries.
I have made this pie numerous times, with fresh, with frozen, with strawberries, with combination blue and raspberries and it is always GREAT!
