Just like key lime pie, this creamy lemon and blueberry pie has a buttery graham cracker crust and a zesty (Meyer lemon) citrus cream filling, with the added bonus of plump blueberries. Top it with fresh whipped cream and you’ve got a delicious fruity dessert!
It’s time to celebrate another food holiday! Today is famously known as “Pi Day” (3.14) and a LOT of people celebrate by making pies. Well, this is an EASY one that you MUST add to your “make soon” list! If you love citrus desserts as much as I do, and you’re a lover of key lime pie, then this is the dessert for you!
When I first was trying to create a yummy pie recipe, I wanted to do something with lemon and raspberries so badly, but believe it or not, I went to two stores and they were both out of raspberries. Are raspberries a hot commodity right now? Apparently. So we went with my husband’s favorite: blueberries. The results are this stunning and delicious Creamy Lemon and Blueberry Pie.
Another reason I was so excited to make this Creamy Lemon and Blueberry Pie is because it was my first time trying Meyer lemons. I saw them at the store and grabbed them right away for this recipe! If you don’t know what Meyer lemons are, they are a cross between a lemon and either a mandarin or regular orange. They aren’t quite as sour as a regular lemon, and they are deep orange-yellow color. So pretty!
So what I did, was take my favorite lime pie recipe, swapped lemons in place of limes, and added fresh blueberries to create this Creamy Lemon and Blueberry Pie. My 6 year old son ate half of this pie himself. He couldn’t get enough! It’s a great citrusy spring dessert if you’re looking for something new to try for Easter or just for fun, because pie is delicious any day, any time. 😉
Happy Pi Day! What’s your favorite pie?
- 12 rectangular honey graham crackers (about 1 & 1/3 sleeves)
- 6 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 Tbsp lemon zest
- 1/2 cup lemon juice (about 4 to 5 lemons - I used Meyer lemons, but regular are fine)
- 1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried
- 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. In a food processor, crush graham crackers until they resemble fine crumbs. Melt butter and add to crumbs. Press evenly in the bottom of a pie dish. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
- In a medium bowl, while the crust is baking, combine the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolk, salt, lemon zest and lemon juice with a whisk until smooth and thick. Toss the blueberries with the flour in a separate bowl until fully coated. Discard any excess flour. (This helps the blueberries not sink to the bottom of the pie.) Fold the flour coated blueberries into the creamy lemon mixture, then pour it into the hot crust & bake an additional 10 to 12 minutes until the filling is solid when jiggled in the pan.
- Let cool completely. Keep refrigerated. Serve with fresh whipped cream (1 cup of whipped cream with ½ cup powdered sugar.)
- *This recipe can be used for pie bars as well. Just press the crust into a square baking dish and follow the rest of the steps as usual.
