Blueberry Almond Streusel Pie!
By: Kecia’s Flavor Breakthrough!
I am SO excited about this post. I love pie… fruity pie is my favorite dessert. I know a lot of people, including my Honey prefer cake or chocolate. But I really want a piece of pie! Blueberries are easy for me, I buy them in season and freeze them. So when I want them I can grab a handful or a bunch and use them! As you know I am not a baker, but… I am really going to try to make my own crust today for this pie. It is going to be a one crust with a crumbly nutty topping. I hope it is as good on the plate as it is in my head!
- One crust for a 9” pie
- 5 cups blueberries (I like a fat pie)
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 tbsp. corn starch
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 2 tbsp. water
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 2 tbsp. butter, chilled
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ½ cup sliced almonds
- 2/3 cup butter, chilled and cut up into cubes
Preheat oven to 375* F
Place blueberries in large bowl. Sprinkle with the sugar, corn starch, cinnamon and salt. Add water and lemon juice. Stir to coat all berries and set aside for about ½ hour.
Mix topping: Place brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, vanilla extract, almonds and butter into a large bowl.
Mix together with a fork until crumbly.
Place crust into pie dish.
Stir the berry mixture and pour into crust.
Top with the topping mixture.
Cover crust edge with foil. Place in oven and bake for 45 – 60 minutes until crust and topping is golden brown and berries are bubbling hot.
Let cool completely before serving.
