BLUEBERRIES PIE

 

BLUEBERRIES PIE

 

I love blueberries and every year I have my little tradition to go pick them up with my kids! It’s a fun activity for them and it is something that I want them to remember when they are older…the precious moments with mamma.

This is my first time making blueberries pie, I got the recipe from an Old Italian Magazine and I have to say I really liked the result; the pie came out not too sweet so I could really taste the blueberries! I love natural flavours! For this recipe I made with my hand the Pate Brisee {Pie Dough} but, if you don’t have time, you can buy it frozen already made.

I highly suggest making this cake with your kids so you can start your own tradition and you can challenge yourself.

INGRIDIENTS FOR THE PIE DOUGH

  • 12 ounces flour
  • 4 ounces butter from the fridge
  • 70 ml water
  • Salt just few pinch
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
  • A sprinkle of love

INGRIDIENTS FOR THE BLUEBERRIES SAUCE

  • 12 ounces blueberries
  • 5 ounces brown sugar
  • 4 ounces cornstarch
  • ½ lemon

METHOD:

  • First thing you have to make the Dough Pie so it can rest for a little bit before you work it on it!
  • In a bowl put the flour, salt, egg, sugar and the butter cut in small pieces. Mix very well with your hands and when you see that the dough start to look very sandy add the cold water. Mix for few minutes and let it rest in the fridge cover with plastic paper.
  • Now it’s time to make the blueberries sauce so in a pan put the blueberries, the brown sugar and the juice of half lemon, cook everything on a medium heat for few minutes and then add the corn starch e cook for 2 minutes. Put your blueberries mixture in a blender and blend everything! Let it rest for few minutes.
  • Get your dough from the fridge, and whit a rolling pin roll it out. What I usually do is this: I put some parchment paper on my working surface, the dough and on top more parchment paper so it will be easier to work it out because the dough won’t stick to the rolling pin. Bring your cake pan and put the rolled dough in, don’t forget to leave few pieces of dough for the decoration, now pour the blueberries sauce, level everything with a spoon and put some decoration on top. In my case yesterday my kids wanted to make few hearts , but you can do stripe or star or whatever you like. In your kitchen you can do whatever you like, you are in control.
  • Bake the cake for 35/45 minutes at 350
  • Buon Appetito
