Here’s a colorful, fun pie for the summer season, or if you really love blueberries…any time of the year!
You start with fresh blueberries that are cooked stove-top to make a compote. This is blended with a custard (also homemade) and then folded into beaten egg whites and fresh whipped cream to create a lovely blue chiffon. You can dress it up with fresh whipped cream and a strawberry to create a red-white-and-blue treat for the 4th of July holiday! Let’s get started!

Ingredients for blueberry chiffon pie


  • 2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • ½ cup Sugar
  • 5 egg yolks
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 packet plain gelatin, dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 6 egg whites
  • Pinch kosher salt


For the crust:

  1. Make pie dough for single-crust pie
  2. Cover the bottom with Beaded Pie Weight Chain to prevent bubbling.
  3. Blind-bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Remove pie weight chain and allow to cool before adding chiffon.

For the Blueberry Chiffon filling:

    1. Prepare single-crust pie, as described above.
    2.  In a small saucepan, combine blueberries and 1/3 cup sugar. Place over medium heat and cook at a rapid simmer until berries wilt and juices thicken (about 15 minutes).
      Let cool. It should resemble a loose jam.
