This Blueberry Crumb Pie is bursting with a sweet berry filling and topped with a crunchy crumb crust. It’s the perfect amount of crunch with the juicy berries.
While I personally love pie any time of the year, our Triple Berry Pie is perfect for Fourth of July, it seems as though the holidays mean pie and any season that celebrates pie is one of my favorites 🙂 This Blueberry crumb pie has the feel of the classic blueberry pie but with a crunchy crumb crust. It’s a blueberry crunch dessert meets blueberry pie and it’s the perfect combination of sweetness and crunch.
Growing up, the top crust on pie was NOT my favorite….the bottom crust that gets soft with all the flavors of the pie however is a different story 🙂 I still prefer a smaller amount of crust on top unless we are talking about this crumb crust. It’s delicious! Top this blueberry crumb pie with some vanilla bean ice cream and I promise it will be a new favorite 🙂
Blueberry Crumb Pie

You can eat this pie warm but I prefer to let the berry filling set more while it cools in the fridge. I actually prefer all kinds of pie cold 🙂 But it’s great for whatever you prefer.
