This post and recipe was created for #SummerDessertWeek! I was sent samples by some of the sponsor companies but as always opinions are 100% mine.
What is more American than apple pie, right?
For the 4th of July holiday this year I decided to bake up a fresh apple pie but I was inspired by the book I just read and made a Blue Apple Pie instead!
I am hooked on Joanne Fluke’s fun Hannah Swensen murder mystery series (with recipes) and this recipe sounded too good to pass up!
I share a few other Joanne Fluke recipes on this blog including these amazing Double Fudge Brownies !
Scroll down for the recipe for my version of the Summertime Blue Apple Pie.
This patriotic crumble topped fruit pie is delicious served warm or cool with a scoop of ice cream on the side!
This recipe is from my favorite food themed murder mystery series by Joanne Fluke.

Blue Apple Pie
For the pie:
- 1 frozen deep dish piecrust slightly thawed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp cardamom
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 2-3 cups Granny Smith apples peeled and sliced
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 can blueberry pie filling
- 1/4 stick 1/8 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
- whipped cream or ice cream for serving
For the crumble topping:
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cold butter cut into pieces.
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- I roll out my piecrust and fit into my large 9 inch pie dish. You can also buy the frozen pie crust already in the tin.
- In a large bowl mix together sugar, flour, and spices.
- After you peel and slice your apples add them to a bowl and toss with lemon juice to keep from browning.
- Add the apples to the bowl of ingredients and toss to coat.
- Now add the blueberry pie filling and mix in.
- Spread filling into the pie shell.
- Add the pieces of cold butter on top of the filling.
- Place the pie on a baking sheet in case it overflows.
To make the crumble:
- Add flour, cut up butter , brown sugar, and cinnamon to a food processor.
- Blend until it is it mixed well and in small pieces.
- Sprinkle the crumble all over the top of the pie, patting on and covering as much as possible.
- You can cut a couple slits in the top of the pie for venting if you need to.
- Baked the pie until it is golden brown and the apples are tender, about 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes.
- Remove and let cool before slicing.
- Serve with scoops of ice cream or whipped cream.
