First, let’s make the crust. Combine the pie dough ingredients together and divide the dough in half, forming each half into a ball. Set one ball of dough to the side and place the other ball of dough into a well seasoned 8 inch cast iron skillet.

Gluten-Free Option: use premade store-bought gluten-free pie dough or make your favorite gluten-free pie dough recipe. All other ingredients are naturally gluten-free.

Next, pat the dough until it completely covers the bottom and sides of the skillet.

Carefully trim the excess dough from around the top rim of the skillet with a sharp knife.

For the filling place the following ingredients in a large mixing bowl:

  • 2 pints fresh blueberries

  • 1 heaping tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch salt

Next, place the remaining ball of pie dough between two pieces of waxed paper. Use either your hands to pat or use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. Make it large enough to cover the top of the skillet. Peel the top sheet of waxed paper off and flip the dough over onto the pie. (See pictures > HERE)

Pinch the edges together. Smear softened butter on top of the dough and a light sprinkle of sugar. To prevent the top crust from bubbling, make four small slits in the top of the dough with a knife.

Sometimes the blueberry mixture oozes out during the baking process so you may want to place the skillet onto a baking sheet with sides in order to keep your oven clean. Bake the pie in a preheated 350-degree oven for approximately 1 hour 25 minutes, or until the center is set and the top crust is golden brown.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • (GF Option - use store-bought gluten-free pie dough or make your favorite gluten-free pie dough recipe)
  • For the Filling:
  • 2 pints fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons minute tapioca (uncooked)

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoon butter, softened

Pat dough out until it completely covers the bottom and sides of the skillet. With a sharp knife, trim the excess dough from around the top rim of the skillet.

Pinch the edges of the bottom crust and top crust together. Smear softened butter on top of the dough and a light sprinkle of sugar. Using a table knife make four slits in the top of the dough.
  5. Place skillet on top of a baking sheet with sides.

This Rustic Cast Iron Skillet Blueberry Pie will serve three to four people,  depending on how big of slices you cut. I recommend serving each slice with a big scoop of ice cream or frozen yogurt. So yummy!

    What a beautiful and appealing pie! I like the trick of rolling the dough between sheets of waxed paper. That is sort of a game changer because it saves you from the mess on the countertop. Sad to see blueberry season coming to an end! Seana Turner recently posted...Things That Make You Say, “Argh!”My Profile

      Hi Seana, Thank you for your kind message. It really is a yummy pie! I am also sad that blueberry season is ending. Guess that means it's time for us to use frozen blueberries in our recipes now. Lol Enjoy!
