Sour cream blueberry pie

This sour cream blueberry pie is slightly tart, creamy, and lightly sweetened with a bit of crunch on top! It's bursting with fresh summer blueberries and is a fun twist on blueberry pie.

I hope everyone is enjoying all of the delicious recipes that are being shared during #BlueberryWeek (check out all of today's recipes at the bottom of this post)!

I'm really excited about this pie. It's basically the same recipe as my sour cream apple pie, just with a few tweaks. Both are completely delicious! I love using sour cream in pies for that extra bit of tangy flavor which helps keep desserts from becoming overly sweet. Plus, blueberries tend to not be overly sweet either, which is perfect for me.

My readers know that we are totally a pie family and I post a lot of pie recipes on the blog. I think this pie is going to be making a frequent summer appearance in our house and has quickly moved into a contender for a favorite of mine. That says a lot!

I'm looking forward to our family's annual blueberry picking day coming up soon. We like to go to a local farm and freeze a few gallon bags to enjoy all year round.
