Summer heat means that we turn the oven on as little as possible but it does not mean that we have to miss out on our favorite desserts! My mom came across the idea for grilled pies and made an Easy Grilled Blueberry Pie for us today. It was delicious and I love that it’s so easy and doesn’t heat up the kitchen! I don’t know what’s worse than a crazy hot kitchen in the summer!
We had a Blueberry Pie this time but this idea would work for just about any pie recipe. A strawberry pie, peach pie, cherry pie, apple pie or rhubarb pie would be fantastic! I hope you’ll give this awesome recipe a try this summer and let us know if you do! We’d love to hear how your grilled pies turn out!
Easy Grilled Blueberry Pie
Your favorite 2-pie crust recipe (my favorite is Pioneer Woman’s recipe!)
4 c. fresh Blueberries
3/4 c. Sugar
3 Tblsp. Flour
1/2 tsp. grated Lemon Peel
Dash of Salt
1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
Cake pan that is 2-inches high.
Preheat grill to medium/high heat. Try to keep it around 400 degrees.
Line a 9-inch pie plate with your uncooked pie crust.
Combine the blueberries, sugar, flour, lemon peel, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl. Pour into your pie crust. Sprinkle with 1-2 tsp. of lemon juice and dot with 1 Tblsp. of butter. Place the 2nd pie crust on top and seal the edges. Make a few cuts in the pie crust to allow venting.
Place the cake pan upside down on the grill then place your pie on top of the cake pan. Cover the grill and cook 20-25 minutes or until the crust is cooked and the filling is bubbly.
Remove from grill and cool 10 minutes before serving.
