Recipe File: Blueberry Yogurt Pie

Blueberry yogurt pie: A favorite summertime treat (photos by TJ)

I’m still on a blueberry kick, so here’s a favorite blueberry treat, this time made by Graham. It’s a great pie.

The Finnish recipe is taken from my well-worn, 20-year old copy of  Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant Cookbook.
I just love the story behind Moosewood, a vegetarian and world food restaurant located in Ithaca, NY.

That’s the home of Cornell University, which happens to have a fashion design program that interests Paige. I am sooooo looking forward to touring Cornell this fall—and finally visiting and eating at Moosewood!!!

Finnish Blueberry Yogurt Pie


1/2 C butter
1/4 C sugar
1 egg
1 C unbleached white flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder

Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter and flour a 9 or 10-inch pie pan. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and blend well. Combine the flour and baking powder and mix into the wet ingredients to form a soft dough.

With flour-dusted fingers pat the sticky dough into the bottom of the buttered and floured pie pan. Push the dough up to cover the sides of the pan. Refrigerate at least as long as it takes to make the filling.


2 eggs
3T sugar
1 C plain yogurt
3 T fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 C blueberries, fresh or frozen

Mix the eggs, sugar, yogurt, lemon juice and vanilla extract until smooth.

Place the blueberries into the pie shell and gently pour in the filling so the berries are coated and evenly distributed.

Bake the pie for 50 to 60 minutes, until the crust is browned and the custard has set. Chill well.



  1. Maybe we can all enjoy when we have a gathering at Dad’s place. Sounds yummy and like you’ve made it more than once.

    • Happy to make it. We need to figure out that date.

  2. Looks great! I can’t wait to try this out.

    • It’s a once-a-year treat here at the home. Hope you like it!

  3. Thanks for posting this – I just made this tart for the first time, after having “Sunday’s at Moosewood” for over 20 years!!! And was so glad to find the recipe on line so I could share on Facebook. Pictures are as scrumptious as mine turned out. Cheers, Jane

    • My Moosewood cookbook is falling apart! Glad you enjoyed it.
