Lemon-Blueberry Cream Pie

by Amy on 7 July 2015

Lemon-Blueberry Cream Pie: Citrusy, bright lemon cream pie full of fresh blueberries, whipped cream + a graham cracker crust. A perfect summertime pie! www.FearlessHomemaker.comLast week, Fearless Baby and I went on an adventure – we went blueberry picking! I was apprehensive, as we had never been to this farm before (and had never been blueberry picking, period) and it was a 45-minute drive away. If you’re familiar with toddlers, you know that combining a new activity with a fairly-lengthy drive is risky. Will it be a fantastic adventure? Or a catastrophe? In our case, it turned out wonderful. It was a weekday morning, and the farm was quiet, which made our berry-picking delightfully leisurely. The overcast skies kept the temperature from getting too high (and made for excellent lighting for taking pictures). And my daughter had SO much fun. She quickly figured out which berries to pick (the plump, dark blue ones), and which ones to leave behind (the green and pink unripe ones). After an hour of picking, our baskets were full.

Lemon and blueberry is one of my favorite flavor combinations, so I knew I wanted to make a lemon/berry dessert straightaway, and settled on this Lemon-Blueberry Cream Pie. And heavens, it turned out amazing. It has a sweet graham cracker crust, topped with a tart no-bake lemon cream cheese/pudding layer, topped with fresh blueberries + jam, then more lemon cream cheese/pudding, and fresh whipped cream. The combination of the crumbly crust, the smooth / creamy lemon layer, and bright pops of fresh blueberries is divine. We all loved it so much that we’ve decided this should be a summertime tradition: A mama/daughter trip to the farm for fresh berries, followed by making this delicious pie for the whole family to share.

And Nashville friends, I can’t recommend Kelley’s Berry Farm highly enough. Warm, welcoming employees, easy to find, and delicious berries. Take a look at their Facebook page for more information/hours if you want to visit, too!

I love blueberry picking! I went this summer and had a blast. Nothing like eating food seconds after it was picked. This pie looks so yummy. I love the combo of blueberry and lemon, they pair so well!
