  • Using a large spoon drop spoonful’s of dough on top of blueberry filling. You don’t have to cover all the blueberries, just try and drop the dough around evenly as pictured.
  • Bake for 45 – 60 minutes at 350°F until the topping is browned and the filling is bubbling.


Blueberries: Fresh is best! I do recommend making your own blueberry pie filling instead of buying it canned. Of course, you can use canned in a pinch. But these days blueberries are easy to find in the store. Frozen would probably work too.
