This blueberry sour cream pie is light and flavorful! Fresh blueberries, folded into a light sour cream custard for a pie that is fresh and not too heavy! I absolutely love this variation on a baked fruit pie and it takes less than 5 minutes to put this filling together.
Why make this Recipe
Our blueberry sour cream pie is incredibly easy to make and is a crowd favorite. It uses simple ingredients and has simple instructions, and you can’t beat that combination!
This pie is best served chilled. It’s perfect for a barbecue, potluck, Sunday dinner, or even your Thanksgiving table.
- Unbaked pie crust dough. While our homemade pie crust will always be our favorite, go ahead and use a store bought pie crust if you like.
- Sour cream. Rich creamy, a little tangy, sour cream pairs perfectly with the other ingredients in this recipe. You can also substitute plain Greek yogurt for sour cream in this recipe.
- Egg. The egg acts as a binder in this recipe and what sets the sour cream mixture up. The egg is what turns the sour cream into a beautiful custard.
- Blueberries. You can use fresh or frozen. Fresh is preferred, but if you want to use frozen check out our FAQ and Expert Tips section below for details on how to use frozen blueberries.
How to make this recipe:
- Start by rolling out your unbaked pie crust and place in a pie pan. Prick crust with a fork to prevent any air bubbles.
- In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, sour cream, egg, vanilla, almond extract, lemon juice, salt, and flour until smooth. Fold in blueberries. And pour into the unbaked pie crust.
- Cover the edges of the crust with foil so they don’t get too brown. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
- While pie is baking prepare the crumble. Use a fork to crumble together cold butter, and flour. Once you have a crumbly meal stir in sugar and salt. After the pie has baked for 30 minutes remove it from the oven, remove the foil from the edges of your pie crust, and sprinkle with the crumble topping. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.
- Cool the blueberry sour cream pie completely before serving.
Frequently Asked Questions and Expert Tips
Can I use frozen blueberries?
Fresh blueberries always taste better in this pie but, fresh blueberries aren’t always in season. If you’re having a hard time finding them you can definitely use frozen blueberries.
Frozen blueberries will have a lot of extra liquid in them and you don’t want to add all that extra liquid into your recipe or it will be very soupy. So, if you do decide to use frozen blueberries you’ll want to thaw them, drain off all the extra liquid, and pat them dry as much as possible.
As we said above you can swap fresh blueberries for frozen. You can also swap plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream! You don’t have to make any additional adjustments to the Greek yogurt, just substitute it straight across.
Using cold butter will give you crisp, tender chunks instead of having your topping melt into a buttery sugar layer over top of the pie.
Because this pie has dairy in it needs to be refrigerated. Cover it lightly with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. It is best eaten within 3-5 days.

Delicious! I was short a little bit of blueberries so I added a chopped apple! Will be making this again FOR SURE!
This pie is delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe!!
This pie was easy to make and incredibly delicious. We kept it chilled until serving. It was a hit.
This recipe is the best. I read in the comments to make a compote blueberries and then added to the sour cream. WOW! it is so much better. Delicious! It was a hit. Thank you!
Have made this many times and many variations. Always a big hit!
A great variation is orange juice and a tsp of zest instead of lemon juice and almond extract, substitute cranberries instead of blueberries. Amazing holiday pie!
Can I bake this at 375 degrees instead of 400? I’d like to bake 2 pies at the same time and the temperatures need to be the same.

Hi Laurie, I have never tried baking this pie at 375 degrees, so I cannot be sure. I imagine it would work, though you would have to adjust the bake time to make sure the pie did not come out too runny. If you do try it, I'd love to hear how it worked for yoU!
I’m worried that the pie crust is going to be soggy without pre-baking the crust. Is this something I should worry about or will the crust be cooked and not soggy?
I’ve read the other reviews and no one says they tried pre- baking crust.
In Fine Taste
Hi Sheryl, I've never had a problem with my crust being soggy or underbaked. I just made this recipe last week and the bottom was crisp, even 2 days.
Thank you for this delicious, easy recipe!
Q: have you ever frozen slices of this blueberry pie? I’m wondering if the custards filling might get watery when defrosted.
In Fine Taste
Hi Lindy, I have never tried freezing this pie before. If you do try it, I'd love to hear how it worked and if it affected the texture at all!
This looks amazing. What size pie plate works best?
In Fine Taste
I usually use an 8 or 9 inch!
Ooh this sounds delicious. Can’t wait to try it. Thanks for sharing.

The blueberry pie looks so gorgeous! I am craving for something with blueberries - I wish I could grab a slice from my screen!

Awesome recipe! Tried it and it was so delicious. So hard to refrain myself from eating the whole thing, lol.
How do you store the pie after baking? In the refrigerator? Or can it stay on the counter?
In Fine Taste
Hi Megan, the pie should be covered and stored in the refrigerator after it cools.
This recipe looks and sounds amazing! Adding it to my to do list!
Beautiful pie ladies! Love the vibrant color!
