Easy Blueberry Pie Recipe From Finland

Finnish Blueberry Pie Recipe

Sharing is caring!

We love blueberries. Every summer we spend in Finland, we pick them. A lot of them. These tasty arctic berries became part of our everyday meals and desserts. It’s about 10 years ago when I got this recipe from a good friend in Joensuu, and since then this is my favorite Finnish blueberry pie recipe with some modifications. I’ve baked it both with fresh and frozen blueberries through the years, and nobody ever complained about it.

There is nothing better than home-made blueberry pies, whether it is summer, fall, spring, or winter. I’ll share with you this easy blueberry pie recipe that you can make it too. And believe me, it is much tastier than mämmi, but hard to rank it with other delicious Finnish food.
