Blueberry Lattice Pie

Blueberry Lattice PieLemon paired with blueberries brings out the delicious flavor of this summer fruit. Frozen unsweetened berries can be used in place of the fresh, so this pie can be enjoyed all year long.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 cups fresh or 2 (16-ounce each) packages frozen unsweetened blueberries
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons Equal® Spoonful*
6 tablespoons cornstarch
Pastry for double crust 9-inch pie

Cooking Directions:

  1. Toss blueberries and lemon juice in large bowl. Sprinkle with combined Equal® and cornstarch. Toss to coat. (If frozen blueberries are used, let stand 30 minutes.)
  2. Roll half of pastry on lightly floured surface into circle 1-inch larger than inverted 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into plate; trim within 1-inch of edge of plate. Roll remaining pastry to 1/8-inch thickness; cut into 10 to 12 strips, 1/2-inch wide.
  3. Pour blueberry mixture into pastry. Arrange pastry strips over filling and weave into lattice design. Trim ends of lattice strips. Fold edge of lower crust over ends of lattice strips. Seal and flute edge.
  4. Bake in preheated 400°F (205°C) oven 55 to 60 minutes or until pastry is browned and filling is bubbly. Cover edge of crust with aluminum foil if browning too quickly. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
