Finnish Blueberry Pie Recipe

Blueberry Pie Recipe | Karoliina KaziHei from Finland. I travelled to Kuopio last week to spend some time with family and friends. The weather hasn’t been ideal for outdoorsy stuff this week so we have gotten ourselves busy with baking, and of course, I want to share this super easy recipe with you too.

In Finland, a blueberry pie is a strong, late summer classic, with blueberries that everyone has a right (every-mans-right) to collect from our beautiful forests. The Finnish blueberries (or bilberries) are the kind that turn your mouth and tongue blue. You may find some forest blueberries at this time of the year in good greengrocers.

This blueberry pie recipe is delicious – tangy, but sweet – and so easy to make. Everyone who had a bite, loved it!

Hei vaan täältä Savon sydämestä! Matkustin Kuopioon viime viikolla kesälomalle ja viettämään aikaa perheen ja ystävien kanssa. Sää ei ole ollut ihanteellinen ulkoiluun tällä viikolla, joten olemme äidin kanssa leiponeet (ja herkutelleet), ja halusin tietenkin jakaa tämän superhelpon ohjeen nyt teillekin.

Kuten jo suomalaisena tiedätkin, on mustikkapiirakka vahva loppukesän klassikko, joka täytetään tuoreilla mustikoilla, jotka on poimittu kauniiden metsiemme uumenista. 

Tämä mustikkapiirakka resepti on herkullinen – kirpeä, mutta makea – ja erittäin helppo tehdä. Kaikki, jotka maistoivat, sanoivat että ihanaa mustikkapiirakkaa!  Blueberry Pie Recipe | Karoliina KaziBlueberry Pie Recipe | Karoliina KaziBlueberry Pie Recipe | Karoliina KaziBlueberry Pie Recipe | Karoliina Kazi
