This Finnish Blueberry Pie (Mustikkapiirakka) recipe is based on the Finnish recipe known as Mustikkapiirakka Ricetta. It is definitely one of the easiest ways to make a Blueberry Pie / Crumble. In Finnish, Mustikka means blueberry and Piirakka means pie.
I was definitely craving something sweet and blueberries were on my mind. We only had frozen blueberries. For the pie crust I wanted to use up a Pillsbury Flaky Rolls tube that I had bought at Christmas and not used yet. The Pillsbury option gave it a bit of a bread/cakey taste that is closer to the Finnish style I was going for. You can use whatever pie crust you prefer.
Ingredients for Finnish Blueberry Pie:
Caution: Please check the ingredients for any allergies / food sensitivities, before trying this recipe.
1 Pie Crust – of your choosing, homemade or cheater pie crust 🙂
3 cups fresh/frozen blueberries
½ cup white sugar
3 T flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 T lemon or lime juice
½ cup flour
½ cup brown sugar
2 T butter (cold)
Instructions for Mustikkapiirakka – Finnish Blueberry Pie:
Place Pie Crust in pie plate or spread Pillsbury Flaky Rolls into pie dish. I used the Pillsbury Flaky Rolls and placed the round roll discs into the pie dish, then using my fingers spread them out and joined the edges together to make a pie crust. It wasn’t too difficult. I tried to form the top edge and shape/crimp it a bit. Not perfect but okay!
Combine Filling ingredients in a bowl, if frozen blueberries it will be dry. Spread out into pie crust to distribute evenly.
For topping, combine flour, sugar and butter in a separate bowl and cut in butter, then using fingers, break up into crumbs further until crumbly and pea size.
Spread topping over filling evenly as shown in picture below.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Let cool. This was the first time I made this recipe and the crust was probably a bit overdone… maybe I could have taken it out at 45 minutes. It still tasted great though!
Serve and Enjoy!
