Ingredients

  • 2 pints blueberries 4 cups
  • 1 pint raspberries 2 cups
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 frozen deep-dish pie shells
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  • Combine blueberries, raspberries, sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, flour and sugar in a large bowl. Set aside.
  • Defrost pie shells according to package instructions.
  • Once defrosted transfer 1 pie shell to glass pie pan that has been lightly dusted with flour. Work defrosted pie shell to fit in the pie pan.
  • Pour filling into the pie pan, pile higher in the middle. Place in the refrigerator, until top crust is prepared.
  • Place the second pie shell upside down on a piece of parchment paper. Flatten and roll out pie shell. You are trying to flatten the shell and can repair any cracks by pressing dough together.
  • Once rolled out use cookie cutter to create vents in pie shell...you could use a knife to cut vents.
  • Remove pie pan from fridge, place flattened pie crust on top of filling. Seal the edges by pressing the edges of the crusts together.
  • Create an egg wash, combine egg and water, brush egg wash on top of pie.
  • Dust pie crust with 1/4 tsp granulated sugar.
  • Bake pie in 425 oven for 20 minutes. Then turn the temperature down to 350 and continue baking for 35-40 minutes. Bake until top is golden brown and middle of pie filling is bubbling.
  • Remove from oven and let sit for at least 20 minutes.

Notes

You can use only blueberries for this recipe. I added raspberries because I could only find 2 pints of blueberries at the market. So, feel free to use 3 pints of blueberries (or 6 cups).
