Treat yourself to this summer classic—the perfect showcase for those little berries we all adore!

Ingredients

  • Pâte à tarte
    1 ball, 375 g (about 3/4 lb.) pie dough
  • Bleuets
    1.5 l (6 cups) fresh wild blueberries
  • Sucre
    250 ml (1 cup) sugar
  • Fécule de maïs
    80 ml (1/3 cup) cornstarch
  • Jus de citron
    30 ml (2 tbsp) lemon juice

Also needed

  • 1 egg yolk beaten with a little water

Optional

  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) cane sugar

Steps

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).
  2. Divide the ball of dough in half. Stretch out the first ball of dough on a floured surface into a circle, 25 cm (10 in) in diameter. Stretch out the other ball of dough into a second circle, 23 cm (9 in) in diameter.
  3. Place the larger circle in a 23 cm (9 in) pie plate. Set aside in a cool place.
  4. In a bowl, mix the blueberries with the sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
  5. Pour the blueberries into the pie crust. Brush the edges of the dough with a little beaten egg yolk. Cover with the second circle of dough. Cut slits in the top crust of the pie to allow steam to escape. Press along the edges to seal the crust.
  6. Brush the pie with the rest of the beaten egg yolk. Sprinkle with cane sugar if desired.
  7. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until the crust is golden-brown.

Homemade version

Pie dough

In a bowl, use your hands to mix 500 ml (2 cups) flour with 160 ml (2/3 cup) cold, diced butter and 1.25 ml (1/4 tsp) salt until it forms coarse crumbs. Incorporate 80 ml (1/3 cup) very cold water, handling the dough as little as possible. Divide the dough into two balls and wrap them separately in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to use
