  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 cups blueberry
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg yolk
Pastry:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1/2 cup cold lard
  • 1/4 cup ice water
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

Method

Pastry: In bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until mixture is in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

In small bowl, whisk water with sour cream; drizzle over dry ingredients, stirring briskly with fork to form ragged dough and adding more water, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, if too dry. Divide in half; press into discs. Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.

In large bowl, combine blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon rind, lemon juice and cinnamon; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll out half of the pastry to generous 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness; fit into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate. Trim to leave 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang. Scrape in filling.

Roll out remaining pastry. Whisk egg yolk with 1 tbsp (15 mL) water; brush over pastry rim. Fit pastry over filling; trim to leave 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang. Fold overhang under bottom pastry rim; seal and flute edge.

Bake in bottom third of 425 F (220 C) oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 F (180 C); bake until golden and filling is thickened, 35 to 45 minutes. Let cool on rack.
