Huckleberry Pie Recipe

Ingredients: Huckleberry Pie Recipe

  • Pastry for 1 (9”) double crust pie
  • 4 cups fresh huckleberries
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp lemon rind (grated)
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp margarine
  • Whipping cream
  • 2 tsp sugar

Directions: Huckleberry Pie Recipe

  1. Roll half of the pastry out on a lightly floured, clean work surface to an ⅛” thickness to fit on a 9” pie plate. Transfer the remaining pastry to the fridge, to chill.
  2. Place the huckleberries in the pastry shell.
  3. In a bowl, combine the sugar with the flour and spoon the mixture evenly over the huckleberries.
  4. Sprinkle with grated lemon rind and fresh lemon juice. Dot with margarine.
  5. Roll the remaining pastry out to an ⅛” thickness and lay over the filling. Trim the edges, seal, and flute. Cut a few slits in the top of the pie to ensure that steam can easily escape.
  6. Brush the top of the pie with whipping cream and scatter the sugar over the top.
  7. Bake in the oven at 425 degrees F. for 15 minutes.
  8. Turn the heat down to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for between 20-25 minutes. You may need to cover the edges of the pastry with aluminum foil to prevent it from browning too quickly.
