1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter
4-5 Tablespoons cold water
6 cups fresh blueberries, washed and dried
3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 Tablespoons cornstarch
Zest from 1/2 lemon
2 Tablespoons fresh-squeezed lemon juice
Measure the flour into a mixing bowl and mix in the salt, add in the shortening or butter.
With a pastry blender or two knives, cut in until you have it the consistency of coarse meal.
One spoonful at a time, sprinkle with the cold water.
Mix lightly with a fork until the dough clings together and cleans easily from the bowl.
Separate into two evenly sized flattened balls.
Roll the bottom portion out to about 12 inches in size and placing into a 9-inch pie pan. Press and fit it in. Place into the refrigerator for 30 minutes while you prepare the filling.
In a bowl, combine the blueberries with the sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest and lemon juice. *Note if the berries are not very sweet, use a little extra sugar.
Stir to combine until the sugar is dissolved into a gooey coating. Set aside and let the berries macerate on the counter 15 to 30 minutes.
Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and transfer the berries into the shell.
Roll the top crust about 11 inches in size and place on top, then tuck the edges under themselves and crimp. Cut a few vent holes in the top pie crust.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place the baking sheet into the oven. Place the pie onto the baking sheet. This will catch any drips that may happen. Bake for 15 minutes at 425F. then turn the oven down to 350F.
Bake for 30-40 minutes until the berry juices are bubbling and the top crust is turning a golden brown.
If you find the crust is browning to fast, tent with aluminum foil.
Remove the pie from the oven onto a cooling rack.
Let cool at least 4 hours to set before cutting and serving.
