I love pie. Always have. It's prime Blueberry season. I have already picked a few flats, and look forward to picking more.
Prepare gluten free pie crust using this recipe from Gluten free on a shoestring, just omit the sugar. Mix together with your hands, rubbing and breaking the butter until it's in small pieces:
2.25 gluten free flour (I used a mixture of one part tapioca starch to two parts brown rice flour)
1 tsp xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
10 TB butter, cold
Now add and mix until combined: 1/2 C to 3/4 C iced water
Chill for 30 minutes or more in the fridge. Roll out using two sheets of wax paper, form it in pie pan. Chill it again.
Mix these together and pour into chilled prepared pie crust:
4.5 - 5 C washed blueberries (approximately 2 pints)
1/4 C gluten free flour
<=1/4 C sugar
dash of vanilla extract
dash of lemon juice
Prep the crumb topping but blitzing in food processor, until chunky:
1/4 C sugar
1/2 C gluten free flour (rice flours are nice and crispy texture)
1/3 C butter
Sprinkle over the top of the pie. Bake at 375 F for around 40 minutes, or until done/browned on top and bubbling.
Blueberries make a great hand pie or turnover. I used the pie crust and stuck a few blueberries (nothing else) and then closed up the pie dough. Cooked it for 15 minutes (?) until browned. Yum.
