Juicy fresh blueberries, creamy sour cream custard, buttery streusel crumble topping with chopped pecans – this blueberry sour cream custard pie won the “Pie Most Likely To Bring About World Peace” award at our annual Pi Day party for good reason.
It’s been a month since I posted a pie recipe and that’s just not right. I had a delicious dinner recipe that I was planning to share today, except that this week has turned into a week of food blogging failures for me. My photography didn’t turn out the way I wanted, the recipes I had in development didn’t turn out quite right, and I just didn’t have enough time to work on the things I was hoping to work on. Fortunately I have had this blueberry sour cream custard pie in my drafts folder for a while now, so I scrapped my plan to post a totally delicious and much healthier but decidedly less beautiful recipe to give myself another chance to do a better job on the photography. And instead you get blueberry sour cream custard pie!
My friend, Christina, brought this pie to our annual Pi Day pie party a couple of years ago and everybody went crazy for it. The blueberries were so juicy and bright and set in a deliciously simple and light custard. And the buttery streusel on top added a warm, nutty crunch that was perfect with the smooth, sweet filling. It’s the perfect pie for someone like my husband who prefers streusel over pie crust (although I have gotta say that the crust is one of my favorite parts of this pie because you can use those extra edge pieces to swipe around your plate and get every last bit of that delicious filling!).
I’ll admit when I first saw the list of ingredients, I was surprised that the custard base is pretty much just an egg, some sour cream and a little sugar and flour. And when you mix it all together it doesn’t look like much. But have faith because it something magic happens when all of those things combine together and envelope lots of fresh blueberries. This blueberry sour cream custard pie is a delicious, creamy and exciting twist on the classic blueberry pie. We make it for Thanksgiving, for Easter, for summer get togethers, and basically everything in between. I think you’re going to love it. And it really just might bring about world peace.
