Finnish Blueberry Pie Recipe
A traditional Finnish blueberry pie has a layer of sweetened fresh blueberries on top of a sugar cookie-like crust.

The base reminded me of the "sugar cookies" you can buy at Walmart or Kroger. Bland, dense, somewhat dry, not crispy, soft I added a t of vanilla to the base & a T of cornstarch with the berries & sugar. I squeezed them in a plastic bag rather than get squirted with blueberry juice using a potato masher. I baked closer to 40 minutes.
I love this (Obviously, as I submitted it). However, I need to note the following: Add 1 tsp. vanilla/vanilla sugar to the dough with the egg. Also, you may need to use less milk (Use between 1/4-1/2 cup). Also, for the topping, add the sugar after you mash the blueberries (You don't need to mash all the blueberries--You can leave some whole). Finally, parchment paper is not necessary, nor is greasing the pan. It will stick a little, but comes out nicely from my glass cake pans.
My grand kids and husband really liked this as a breakfast treat. I served a small scoop of ice cream on the side. I thought the crust and filling were a bit too sweet, but worth working on because the kids liked it. The crust had a texture somewhere between a sugar cookie and poundcake. I think the berry topping would be every bit as good with half of the sugar and very slight mashing.
This was simply delicious! As a Finn and native Yooper, I feel that this was the perfect way to prepare the beautiful Michigan blueberries that are in season right now.
