Lime Blueberry Pie


1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoon light-brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon Minute Tapioca mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon lime zest
4 cups Maine wild blueberries (I like using frozen)
1 tablespoon salted butter
1 egg


In a separate mixing bowl, prepare the filling. Whisk together sugars, flour, tapioca, lime zest, and spices. Toss berries in dry mixture. Pour berries gradually into crust, holding back flour mixture with a big spoon. When the coated berries fill the bottom, pour the rest of the dry mixture on top of berries. Drizzle lime juice over berries; dot with butter.

Roll out top and bottom crusts to fit your pie plate.  Fit the bottom crust in, make sure you have about 1.5 inches to roll over.  Fold bottom crust up over top crust (this prevents side leaks); crimp to seal. Cut vents in the top to let the steam escape.  Beat egg and give the top of the crust a light egg wash.

Use leftover dough to decorate the top. Bake 50 minutes for fresh berries, 60 minutes for frozen or until juices bubble up out of the vents.


  1. Now that is a delightfully "wicked good" mouth watering pie !

  2. lime not sure how I feel about that I think of lime in drinks. But the blueberries yummmmm ?

  3. This is a unique recipe for blueberry pie...the addition of lime and the bit of brown sugar...blueberry pie is my favorite! We had apple pie today and I was just wishing that it was blueberry.

  4. Mmmm! This pie is very like a diner pie that we used to have at The Agawam in Rowley, MA when we were young married folks with little money and a need to 'go out to dinner' to take a break from youngsters ... what memories food kicks up! Lovely pie it looks to be! yum!

  5. I love blueberries most as they are, or in a bowl with milk and sugar over them for dessert, but your pie might convince me that there are other ways to enjoy them :-)

    Can't quite work out which are the ingredients for the crust, and which are the ones for the filling.
    How hot should the oven be?

  6. your pies always look stunning, such a wonderful tradition... are those 3 slices for me? I assume so...

  7. Sounds wonderful Mary. Lime brings out the flavor of fruits.

  8. Oh my, I am salivating and it's only 8:00 am! My little grandson made blueberry lime muffins the other day and I'm still in awe. I can't wait to try your recepie! The lime is the key.

  9. Ok...seriously the picture made my mouth water! This looks so good! Other than a pumpkin pie I have never really attempted a pie like this...I must try it now!

  10. Your Lime Blueberry Pie looks beautiful! Love the combination of the flavors.

  11. Oh Mary, this looks delicious!!
    May I have a slice right now, please?

  12. Mary, this pie looks so yummy! I wonder whether it would work well too with blackberries, as at the moment they are plentiful here in the hedgerows in the UK otherwise we have to buy imported blueberries from the supermarket.
    I shall try out your recipe this weekend and let you know - thanks for sharing!

  13. First of all, that crust is so nicely browned I wouldn't care about the filling. I would just eat the entire crust off the pie. Never had lime with blueberry but I do like lemon and blueberry as a combination. And those plates are just adorable. Love my pie on a pretty plate!


I'm thrilled you've stopped by and I always enjoy your comments! Thank you!
