How to Make Blueberry Rhubarb Pie
Before you get started making your pie, chill your pie crust in the fridge to make it easier to work with. While the dough is chilling, preheat your oven and begin making the filling.
Start by combining the flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add in the blueberries and rhubarb – but be gentle here! You don't want to crush the berries. Mix them in gently until they're coated with flour. Stir in the honey to sweeten things up, then set your bowl to the side. Cut your chilled pie crust in two and roll out one half. Pop the crust into a pie dish, then pour in the fruit filling.
Now it's time for the fun part. Roll out the remaining pie dough and grab your cookie cutter and punch out shapes. Lay these over the top of the pie and brush them with a little egg wash. Bake your pie for 20 minutes then cover it with foil and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove the pie from the oven and wait 20 minutes before tucking in.
Tips for Making the Best Blueberry Rhubarb Pie
– Chill your pie crust before making this recipe to make it easier to handle.
– Use fresh rhubarb or frozen rhubarb for this recipe. You don't need to cook it before making the filling.
– If you want to use frozen fruits, let them thaw then pat them dry before making the filling. If you don't the pie may end up runny.
– To keep the bottom of your pie from getting soggy, blind bake the crust for 10 to 15 minutes and pat your blueberries and rhubarb dry before assembling the filling.
– If you don't want to use an egg wash, milk or even water will help the crust to brown.
– For extra texture, sprinkle coarse sugar over the top of your pie.
