Ingredient Notes and Variations

  1. All-purpose flour: An essential pie crust base ingredient. You can use whole wheat flour for a healthier alternative, but the results may slightly differ in dense crust. 
  2. Raw sugar: It adds sweetness to the pie crust and fills with slightly subtle caramel flavors in each bite. Granulated sugar or brown sugar can be substituted for raw sugar. 
  3. Vegetable shortening: It creates flakiness in the pie crust. Don’t forget to chill it before using it to get good results. Butter is a good substitute for vegetable shortening but may produce a different texture.
  4. Fresh blueberries: It is the star of the recipe. Blueberries provide vibrant colors and natural sweetness to the pie. You can use dried or frozen blueberries as an alternative if you don’t have fresh blueberries. 
  5. Cornstarch is added to the blueberry filling to thicken it and prevent it from becoming runny while baking the pie. You can use arrowroot powder or tapioca starch as an alternative.
