Lately I've been craving pie, and since I already made my daughter a cherry pie, I decided I'd make one of my favorites, which is blueberry. The crust and pie filling were not made from scratch, but rather with canned pie flling which I purchased from Wal-mart (the Great Value Brand), and with one of those already-made pie crust, which I purchased from Aldi's. Normally I place a pie shield ontop my pies before baking them, but this time I forgot to do that, and yet my pie crust turned out perfect, and not too dark. The end results, a quick and delicious tasting pie! Not made from scratch, but still good!!
Canned Blueberry Pie
2-(21 ounce) cans blueberry pie filling (*See note)
1-(15 ounce) pkg. 2-already made pie crusts
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
wax paper (To unroll pie dough onto)
mini cookie cutters
granulated sugar (To sprinkle ontop the pie)
1-(14-inch) circular shaped pizza tin
1-(10-1/2 inch) pie shield (optional use)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove both pie crusts from the pkg. Let pie crusts set on kitchen counter for 20 minutes before using.
Remove one of the crusts from the plastic wrap. Unroll the pie crust and place it on a sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle the teaspoon of flour over the crust. Using your hand, lightly spread the flour over the entire crust. Place the pie crust, floured side down, inside a 9-inch pie pan. Add both cans of pie filling into the pie pan.
Unroll the remaining pie crust onto the sheet of wax paper. Using desired shaped mini cookie cutters, cut-out and remove some of the dough, near the center of the pie crust. Set cut-out pie dough aside.
Top the pie with the remaining pie crust. Place the cut-out pie dough ontop the pie crust. Sprinkle the pie dough with a bit of the granulated sugar. Place pie pan ontop the 14-inch pizza tin before placing in oven. If desired, place the pie shield evenly ontop the pie, before baking. Bake the pie for 1-hour in a 350 degree oven.
*Note: This is the already made pie crust I use, whenever I make my pies. I purchase mine from Aldi's, and I much prefer it over the Pillsbury Pie Crust. Also, for this recipe, you can use another canned pie filling, such as... cherry, peach, raspberry or strawberry.
