Blueberry Cream Pie

Very easy to make, this sweet blueberry pie tastes best served out of the refrigerator chilled, making it a perfect dessert for those hot Summer afternoons.


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pastry shell
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine sour cream, 2 tablespoons flour, sugar, vanilla, salt and egg in large bowl of an electric mixer. Beat 5 minutes at medium speed or until smooth. Fold in the blueberries.
  • Pour filling into pastry shell, and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven.
  • With a pastry cutter or a fork, chop the cold butter into the 3 tablespoons of flour, and then mix in the chopped pecans. Sprinkle over top of pie. Return pie to oven, and bake an additional 10 minutes. Chill pie before serving.

NOTE: I made this pie using the Simple Flaky Pastry Crust recipe.
