Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
For a good friend moving to L.A., I made a blueberry goat cheese pie. Bake one, share it and start a precious memory. —Ashley Lecker, Green Bay, Wisconsin
  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • Fresh basil leaves, torn
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. On a floured sheet of parchment, roll dough into a 10-in. circle. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  2. Mix blueberries, 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch and basil. Spoon blueberry mixture over pastry to within 2 in. of edge. Fold pastry edge over filling, pleating as you go and leaving the center uncovered.
  3. Whisk egg and water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with goat cheese; bake until crust is golden and filling is bubbly, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Top with torn basil leaves before serving.
