PieDay Friday-Blueberry Muffin Pie

This is a three step pie that, thanks to the crust, envokes the flavor of blueberry muffins.  The idea was inspired by guess who....Dr. Pie Fiend.  After a month of trying to decide the best method for making a blueberry muffin inspired pie, I finally just dived right in and did it. The recipe below uses homemade vanilla pudding/pie filling and a homemade blueberry topping. If strapped for time or not in the mood to make this pie from scratch, you can use canned blueberry pie filling and instant pudding. I'm sure your family will forgive you. :)

Be sure to check out Between The Lines for a feature on my blog and an exclusive recipe for my Applesauce Pie! 504 Main also featured my Quick Strawberry Cheesecake recipe, be sure to stop by and show some love!

Between the Lines

Blueberry Muffin Pie

Vanilla Pie Filling
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups whole milk
4 egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly whisk in egg yolks followed by the milk. Cook over medium heat, whisking continuously until mixture thickens. Once mixture has thickened and comes to a low boil, continue cooking and whisking for another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add butter and vanilla. Stir until butter has melted. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.

Blueberry Topping

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon lemon juice

Combine 1 cup of blueberries with 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar in a medium saucepan. Simmer over low heat until sugar has melted. Whisk together water and cornstarch and add to saucepan along with the lemon juice. Turn up heat to medium and cook until mixture comes to a full boil and has thickened. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to full boil and is clear and thick. Remove from heat and let cool. Once cooled, fold in remaining blueberries.

Streusel Crust

6 tablespoons butter
1 1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar

Combine all ingredients with hands or pastry blender until crumbly. Press into bottom and up sides of a well greased, 9 inch pie plate. Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes or until lightly golden; do NOT over-bake. Crust will be slightly soft when taken out of oven, it will firm up as it cools.

Pie Assembly:
Once crust, pudding and blueberry topping have all cooled, fill crust with pudding and spread out towards edges. Top with blueberry mixture, leaving a 1/4-1/2 inch space around perimeter of pie.
