Original recipe makes 1 - 9 inch pie Change Servings


  1. To Make Crust: Blend the flour and the butter or margarine thoroughly. Add baking powder, vanilla, sugar, and egg; mix thoroughly. Let the dough rest for about 25 minutes.
  2. Lay enough dough to cover the pie dish in the center of the pan, and spread the dough evenly over the bottom and sides of the pan. There will be dough left over for the top of the pie. Take a fork, and make holes with it here and there along the bottom of the pie dough. Let the pie dough rest again for another 25 minutes.
  3. Put the berries inside the pie dish, and then spread the remaining crumb dough over it.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F ( 205 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes.

First I would like to say that nothing bothers me more than someone that does not follow the recipe and when it doesn't turn out they give the recipe a bad review. Folks, please follow the recipe first before you change anything and review it… then, change whatever you like. If your version turns out good please share it with us under the custom versions. We would love that..... Ok with that said and out of the way, I loved this pie. It was so easy to make and just about as perfect as you can get for a blueberry pie. The crust was the easiest crust I have ever made. No need for a rolling pin! Thank you Fabian Karrholm for sharing this recipe with us!

If I make this recipe again I will add more sugar and more butter. The crust was really dry. I used a combo of blueberries and blackberries-way too tart! Other than that it was alright, not the best by just alright. I think this pie might be really good with strawberries and whipped cream.

Foolproof and Delicious! This pie is perfect for anyone who has pie crust fear or is looking for something easy and yet still a "wow" item. I have made this many times and done things like substituted fruits, messed up portions and it still comes out wonderful! I have even passed it along to friends of mine that are serious pastry chefs(in high end restaurants in chicago!)

I followed the instructions and with a little change i.e. added 1 cup blueberry+1 cup raspberry and sprinkled some brown suger over them then added the rest crumb dough.With a scoop of vanilla ice-cream it was a winner.thanks alot Fabian !!

this is the best pie I have ever made!!! I made the first with blueberries and just finished the second with strawberries/raspberries and blackberries, and perfect every single time, not matter what you put into it! EASY EASY EASY I didn't change a thing and wouldn't its perfect!

I wanted a blueberry dessert that was a little different and this fit the bill nicely. The crust is incredibly simple to make and the filling couldn't be easier. My berries were a bit tart, so I sprinkled a little Splenda over them before adding the crumb topping. My pie was completely done in 25 minutes (the crust was actually getting very dark). This is delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Stunning pie! I made it with blackberries I picked in the morning since I haven't had a chance to pick blueberries yet. I also added some brown sugar on the top to make the crumble go a little further. It was delicious! I hate making pie crusts, but this one is so easy and so yummy I'll use for all my pies!

VERY easy, VERY good. Only added some brown sugar to my berries (because they were wild picked blackberries and raspberries) and a little to the crumb topping as well. Thank you for the recipe, its a keeper!!! Can't wait to make again when blueberries are in season!
