Deep Dish Blueberry Pie

(7 Votes)
45 Min

There's nothing better than digging your fork into a pie and realizing that you've still got more to dig into! Our Deep Dish Blueberry Pie is a blueberry-lovers dream. Not only is it an easy blueberry pie recipe, but it's LOADED with fresh blueberries (and one very special secret ingredient!).

What You'll Need:
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking tapioca
  • 6 cups fresh blueberries
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 1 (15-ounce) package rolled refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
  • 1 egg mixed with 1 tablespoon milk
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss together sugar, tapioca, blueberries, and orange juice.
  2. Unroll 1 pie crust on a well-floured surface. Fit over bottom of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Spoon blueberry filling into crust and place second pie crust on top of filling. Pinch edges together to form a tight seal and decorative trim. With a knife, cut 5 or 6 small slits into crust. Brush pie with egg and milk wash.
  3. Place pie on a baking sheet and bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until blueberry filling is bubbly and the crust is golden. Let cool before serving.



  • Wanna make your own crust? No problem! Just follow our easy recipe!
  • Serve a great big slice of this golden-crusted, bubblin' blueberry pie, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra "Wow!"

Question for the Test Kitchen Team Can I substitute unflavored gelatin for the quick cooking tapioca?? If not, what can be substituted for the quick cooking tapioca and in what amount??

Hello! - Unfortunately, in this recipe you cannot substitute unflavored gelatin for the tapioca, since the gelatin does not have the same thickening properties as the tapioca and would result in a watery pie.

OK, thank you!! Can you use something other than tapioca for thickening??

The Deep Dish Blueberry pie is so good I was asked why I didn't make two. BB are so reasonably I made another one today. I did do something different. I cooked 3/4 of the BB with the sugar,tapioca and juice for 5 mins. I let them cool then added the remaining BB. By cooking first you don't see the tapioca in the finished product. I also added my own touches from years of cooking experience. Enjoy!!

I made this pie with frozen berries and cartoned orange juice. It was absolutely delicious.

My absolute favorite!!

Can you use frozen blueberries?

Hi there! You can definitely use frozen blueberries, but just be aware that they tend to carry a little more water. However, the tapioca will help with absorbing most of the water. Enjoy!

I want to prepare the blueberry pie filling with cornstarch

This is the best blueberry pie that I have ever tasted. We have several berry bushes, so we can enjoy it more often.
