  • 2 cups organic all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 10 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 4 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. white rice flour or cornstarch
  • 3 tsp. grassfed gelatin optional
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg optional
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon optional
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice


  1. Heat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Combine the flour and salt in a food processor (this can also be done by hand). Pulse to blend.

  3. Add 5 Tbsp. butter. Pulse until combined.

  4. Add other 5 Tbsp. of butter. Pulse until combined and there are pea-size crumbles.

  5. Add the water and process until a ball of dough forms.

  6. Split the dough in half.

  7. Roll one of half of the dough on a floured surface and place it in a 9" pie pan.

  8. In a large bowl combine the remaining ingredients for the filling.

  9. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust.

  10. Roll the remaining crust on a floured surface.

  11. Cover the filling with the pie crust and seal edges.

  12. Cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape.

  13. Place the pie pan on a sheet pan (in case of spills).

  14. Bake for 10 minutes in preheated oven.

  15. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake for another 40 - 45 minutes.

  16. Allow pie to cool completely before serving. This allows the filling to fully set.

  17. Serve plain or with ice cream or whipped cream.
