March 14th (3.14) celebrates Pi Day as well as Pie day! This is a holiday for everyone to enjoy, from mathematicians to bakers and everyone in between. Here is a delicious homemade a pie recipe brought to you by Warehouse Discount Center.
Pie dough for top and bottom 9-inch pie
2/3 cup to 3/4 cup granulated sugar according to taste
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 teaspoons freshly grated lime zest
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
2 pounds fresh blueberries (about 6 cups)
1 tablespoon butter, cut into small squares
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon buttermilk
Gram cracker crumble for garnish
Stir sugar, cornstarch, lemon peel, allspice, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add blueberries and gently toss to combine. Transfer blueberry filling to prepared/store bought pie crust. Refrigerate while preheating oven.
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Position an oven rack in the lower third of the oven then place a baking sheet on rack.
Sprinkle gram cracker crumble on top of the pie. Bake pie on hot baking sheet for 20 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees F then continue to bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the crust is golden and juices in the filling bubble. If the crust begins to brown too much, cover with aluminum foil and continue to bake until done.
Cool 2 to 3 hours before cutting to allow filling to set. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream!
-If you cannot find fresh blueberries, you can substitute 6 cups frozen blueberries that have been thawed and drained.
-If you would rather a lattice dough top, or solid top with slits prepare and roll out enough dough and transfer on top right before baking.
