Ozark Blueberry Pie Recipe

Blueberries grow well in this area, and this old-time recipe goes over well with pie eaters. It won first prize at the 1990 Missouri State Fair!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 can (14 ounces) whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • CRUST:
  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 6 tablespoons ice water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine first eight filling ingredients. Stir in blueberries; set aside.
  • 2. For crust, in another bowl combine the flour, salt and mace. Cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork until a ball is formed. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
  • 3. Divide pastry in half so that one ball is slightly large than the other. Roll out large ball on a lightly floured surface to fit a 9-in. pie plate.
  • 4. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with edge of plate. Add the filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Beat egg with water; brush over crust. Cut slits in top.
  • 5. Bake at 425° for 40 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 8 servings.
