Traditional Finnish Blueberry Pie

Where Blueberry meets Cheesecake

I grew up in Finland where the forests are filled with beautiful produce and so we have a lot of delicious recipes that incorporate this produce. Unfortunately now living in Germany I cannot pick wild blueberries locally, so the ones from shop will do this time.

In this pie juicy and flavourful little blueberry pearls meet a creamy cheesecake filling. However it is very easy to make and will take only about 30 minutes to prepare.

I never thought much of this pie while living in Finland, but now that I have started making it here in Germany, it seems to have everyone falling in love.

Take your loved ones by surprise and bake them something different, like this delicious Traditional Finnish Blueberry Pie and make them fall in love with it. 

 

Happy Baking lovelies!
