How to make delicious Homemade Blueberry Pie Recipe and How to Freeze Pies so you can make multiple desserts at once but have them ready to go at a later time.
Blueberries plump and sugary sweet right out off the bush. They are then used to cook up some tasty desserts, like pies, flapjacks, and scones and of course jam. They can also be kept in the freezer (or get dehydrated) to preserve throughout a lengthy period of time. When the days come, get at every blueberry possible to make the most of jam and desserts planned in the future that will last the rest of the year. Get the piecrust on and over the edge and fill it with blueberries. Then, stick them in the freezer.

Tips for freezing: When doing so, add an extra tablespoon of flour in each planned pie when placing them on a sheet. Freeze them wrap it up with aluminum foil. Get an aluminum pie pan and wrap it twice in aluminum foil. While many suggest defrosting the blueberries, it is not necessary. Instead, put on an extra 20 minutes to the normal time to bake the pie. When it is ready to bake, start by heating the oven to 425 degrees. Get aluminum foil and wrap the edges to keep the pie’s edges from getting burned. Stick the pie for the first 15 minutes at that temperature, and then lower it to 375 degrees for another 45 minutes.
