Sometimes it’s fun to try something a little different from the usual blueberry pie recipe–like this Blueberry Cream Pie recipe!

It’s probably not what you are expecting when I say “cream pie” but it’s really, really good. Heavy cream, sugar, and blueberries are tossed together and poured into a pie crust. Mine took much longer to bake than the time specified in the original recipe. I kept it in the oven until it felt like it was more set. It finished setting in the refrigerator as it cooled.

This pie recipe shows off those fresh Indiana blueberries very nicely. If needed, you may substitute frozen berries. Adapted from Taylor Takes a Taste.

  1. I made this pie yesterday and it looked amazing when I took it out of the oven and I left it in the fridge for quite some time but when I cut into it, the inside was runny, even though the top was a golden brown! I did everything exactly as the recipe said, anything you could think that caused it to turn out this way?

  2. I just made a very similar peach cream pie last night. Recipe is the same except for peaches and 2 eggs.
    I just wished the center had set up better. I think I should have drained my peaches after I peeled and cut them up.

  3. Jessica Nunemaker

    Yes. Those just add a hint of flavor and don’t affect consistency.

  4. Would this still work without lemon or orange zest?

  5. Jessica Nunemaker

    Woot! Woot! Glad to hear it! :)

  6. I made this for a family night pitch-in. It was gone in minutes once word got out. I made it for a friend tonight and again, a big hit with her. So simple and fabulous! going to become my go-to pie for summer. ;-) thanks from So.In!

  7. I don’t see why not! That sounds like it would be a good complement!

  8. Could you do raspberries instead??

  9. Jessica Nunemaker

    I wouldn’t. You need to bake the pie for a long time. I think graham cracker crusts are usually used for no-bake pies.

  10. Jessica Nunemaker

    Nope. Only put a crust on the bottom.

  11. Do you put a pie crust on the top as well a the bottom?

  12. I was wondering if you could use a graham cracker pie crust for the above Blueberry Cream Pie recipe.
    Thanks :)

  13. This is in my oven right now. Went blueberry picking with my husband and 2 year old daughter the other day. My lemon zester wasn’t cooperating so I used a few teaspoons of lemon juice from a bottle. Probably won’t even taste it but oh well. I’m sure it will still be tasty.
