Blueberry Pecan Crunch Pie


Have you ever paid over $20 for a pie? Well, I have, and first of all, it was a huge pie, and second, it tasted lovely. So lovely that I recreated it last week, and my guesstimate of how to make it worked well. Here’s what I did! This recipe made three small pies or you could make two large pies (or one HUGE one!)


3 (12 oz.) bags frozen blueberries, thawed

2 ½ cup sugar

2 Tblsp. lemon juice

½ cup cornstarch

½ cup water


1 cup chopped pecans

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup white flour

½ cup melted butter


3 small (8-inch) pie crusts (see my recipe here—I split this recipe into thirds and filled small pie tins with it.)

To make the filling, mix the berries, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium-sized pot over medium heat until they come to a boil. Mix the cornstarch and water together until it is not lumpy and then add to the boiling berries. Bring to a boil again and stir for a couple minutes more until thick. Remove from heat.

To make the topping, mix together the pecans, brown sugar, flour, and melted butter until crumbly.

To assemble, take a pie shell, place a 1/3 of the berry mixture in it and sprinkle with a third of the crumbs. Repeat.

Back at 425 degrees for 25 minutes or until the topping is brown and the filling is starting to bubble.

Makes 3 small pies that serve 4 people each.
