How to Avoid a Runny Blueberry Pie?

To best avoid this, cover it with aluminum foil, then place the pie back in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for about 12 minutes. Afterward, do not slice a piece until it has set for about 2 hours at room temperature, or else you will end up with a messy, wet, and runny blueberry pie.

You can also use the crumble topping method since it is a particular way of re-baking the bottom crust, re-heating the pie filling and making a crumble topping. Start by scooping out the pie filling. Afterward, place the pie back at the bottom rack to let it cook properly. Heat the pie filling on the stove at a low simmer till the juice lessens, then let it cool. By the time the crust is well-cooked, reinsert the pie filling. Then, cover it with a crumble topping.

Step 3

Get your remaining pie dough in a circle, and cut out at least 1″ strips of dough. Then, place the strips on top of the blueberry pie horizontally, then perpendicularly to form an X, repeat the process until a lattice pie crust is formed.

Step 4

Clean the edges by trimming and crimping the pie crust, then gently brush the top with egg wash.

Step 5

Place the pie on a sheet tray, bake for 55 minutes until juices in the middle of the pie are bubbling. Make sure the liquid in the middle is bubbling. The fluid needs to boil to activate the starch. Otherwise, the filling will be runny.

Step 6

To finish it off, take out the pie from the oven, let it cool on a rack. Serve and enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Creating holes in the crust helps it to avoid inflating. Supposing you do not want to use cornstarch, you add flour instead. If you don’t have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen blueberries and increase baking time by 15 minutes.

Avoid adding too many blueberries than what is required in the recipe. If you did put plenty of it, it would not go well with the quantity of cornstarch. Likewise, always follow the exact amount that is needed in the recipe. It is important to know that a lattice crust serves as vents for the liquid while it bakes. Also, it allows you to see when the pie filling is bubbling to check if the pie is finished. That is why lattice crust is commonly used for berry pies rather than solid top crust.

If your conventional oven’s dial is not precise, use an oven thermometer to guarantee the correct oven temperature. Also, utilize a toaster oven when your conventional oven has fluctuating temperatures and hot spots.
