Ingredients

Choose your measure:

Crust

Lemon Filling

  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch or potato starch
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten

Streusel Topping

Blueberries

  • 3 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch or potato starch

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Have ready one 9" pie shell.
  2. To make the filling: Melt the butter and stir in the lemon juice, salt, sugar, cornmeal, and starch. Add the eggs and stir until the mixture is well-combined.
  3. Pour into the pie shell. Bake the pie on the bottom rack of the oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until the lemon filling is almost set (it will still wobble when moved). Remove the pie from the oven and place on a rack to cool. The filling will continue to cook through during this time.
  4. To make the streusel topping: In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Melt the butter and add the vanilla.
  5. Pour the butter mixture over the flour and toss together to form irregular crumbs. Set aside.
  6. To make the blueberry filling: Combine just-washed fresh berries (they need to be wet) with the sugar, salt and starch. If you're using frozen berries, toss them with the sugar, salt and thickener and allow to thaw, tossing once in a while to coat well.
  7. When the lemon filling is almost done, heat the berries (in a microwave or over medium heat) until bubbly.
  8. To combine: Gently spoon the blueberry filling onto the lemon evenly. Sprinkle with the crumbs.
  9. Return to the center rack of the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the crumbs are lightly browned on top. Remove from the oven, cool, then chill to allow the pie to set.
  10. Store for 5 days in the fridge.
