There’s a few things in life that just work together. Peanut butter and jelly. Jeans and a white tee. Me and any one of the Jonas Brothers. It just works, you know? Today I’m sharing a recipe with one such combo, a pair so fitting and delicious that I’m calling it one of my favorite surprises of the summer: blueberries and sour cream. This blueberry sour cream pie is all kinds of just right, and after I give you the lowdown I think you’ll agree.

If you’re anything like me, the sound of a blueberry sour cream pie is kinda weird at first. After all, isn’t sour cream reserved for baked potatoes? For cheesy French onion dip? Nasty tuna casseroles? NOPE. Sour cream does amazing, miraculous things to baked goods when given a little love (and sugar). Here, the sour cream serves as the base for a custard-y filling that is sweetened with sugar and loads of fresh berries. The end result is a cheesecake-like filling with just the right amount of sweet and tang.

The anchor for this blueberry sour cream pie is a walnut pie crust from my friends at Diamond. I’ve been using their nuts for years, so when they asked me to come up with a recipe using their new ready-made pie crusts I jumped at the chance. I was recently introduced to sour cream pies, and I knew Diamond’s Walnut Pie Crust was the perfect vehicle for that dreamy filling. The crust has great texture, baked up wonderfully, and kept my prep time for this pie under ten minutes.

After a quick stint in the oven, this blueberry sour cream pie is topped with a simple walnut crumble and baked for a few minutes longer until it barely jiggles in the center. Upon cooling, the pie has strata-like layers of crust, custard, berries, and crumble, plus it slices like a dream. I started to serve this pie with a little bit of whipped cream, but honestly, it needs no garnish. The simplicity of a great pie crust, cream filling, and fresh summer produce is about all we need.

Ingredients

For the pie:

  • 1 Diamond Walnut Pie Crust
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 11/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

For the crumb topping:

  • ¼ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the pie crust on a sheet pan. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combined the sour cream, milk, egg, egg yolk, sugar, flour, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt. Beat on medium speed for 4 minutes. Pour the blueberries into the prepared crust and pour the batter over top of them. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top of the pie feels kind of set but is still a little jiggly in the center.

Y’all, I am about as merry as a box of candy canes right now. We have, quite literally, one million things in the air right now- a house we’re building, a potential move-in date a week away, work deadlines,  end of year birthdays and parties- but I am determined to be the most holly jolly Mom of two munchkins this side of the North Pole. Never mind that my house looks like a corrugated box and styrofoam explosion; who cares that I haven’t showered, like, at all this week. We’re gonna press on, and we’re gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas! (10 points if you can name that movie quote!)

Last weekend I tried to get the kids in the Christmas spirit with a few traditional activities. We made a gingerbread house (LOL), visited Santa Claus at a local church, and even went decorated sugar cookies. We saw “The Grinch” for the third time and sang Christmas music all day. I even bought a tiny white tinsel tree with mini bulbs for the kids to decorate in lieu of the larger tree we will have at our new house. Aimee decorated the tree and then immediately whined about it not being large enough to put presents under. *Not today, Satan, not today.*

Basically what I’m trying to say is that I’m trying to do my part even in kinda weird, hectic circumstances. Lest you think I’m doing this out of a Mom-guilt obligation or some incessant need to Keep Up With The Jones’, let me assure you that these efforts are almost 100% selfish; I just really love Christmas, okay? So while we wax poetic about the Baby Jesus and drink lukewarm, child-safe cocoa out of plastic cups, let me introduce you to a holiday treat that I think you’re really going to like: sweet and savory rugelach.

I’m new to the ruglech train. I’ve tried to make it in the past a number of times, usually without any success, but this was the first time that I was super happy with the results. One dough with two fillings- a sweet and savory- to make a treat that is suitable for appetizer snacks or end-of-dinner desserts. I’m sharing today’s recipes with my BFFs at Diamond of California, who are my go-to for all things nuts. I used their marcona almonds with white chocolate for the sweet rugelach and their whole walnuts for a blue cheese and fig spread savory option. Both are divine, so if you’re in the holiday spirit, break out your nutcrackers and let’s dive in!

Here’s what I know about rugelach: it’s a moist dough traditionally made mainly with flour, butter, and cream cheese. The filling options here are endless, but they’re almost always rolled into bitty spiral cookies that are baked until almost crisp. In the past, I’ve had trouble getting my dough to hold its shape in the oven and have ended up with flat, sad-looking crescent roll things. With a smidge more flour and more time to chill the dough, I found that the treats hold up pretty well in the oven. You can swap out your fillings here as you please, just be sure that you keep your dough the same. Don’t use too much moist filling or too many dry ingredients in the centers, or you may find yourself with a mess on your hands. Swapping out nuts or chocolate varieties is totally fine here- experiment!

A few notes: the sweet rugelach tends to ooze it’s buttery-sugar filling during the baking process. I noticed that even a change in pans yielded slightly different outcomes. If you notice that your cookies are baking in a pool of butter about halfway through, carefully remove the pan from the oven and drain off any excess. Make sure they’re far enough in the baking process that they’ll stay put on the pan, or you may end up dumping your treats down the drain! If you don’t want to risk it- no problem. I just like this for keeping the bottoms as crisp as the tops. Keeping your dough cold and your oven the right temp as the pans go in will help to prevent some of this as well. As for the savory rugelach, if you’re not a fan of blue cheese, feel free to try gorgonzola, feta, or whatever! I love how the salty blue cheese balances with the sweet fig spread, but to each his own.

One final plug for Diamond of California: their nuts are the bomb. You can expect consistent, excellent product from them every time. Pick up a few bags at the store and give them a try yourself! The Whole Walnuts are perfect for this time of year when we all have our nutcrackers out already. They make a great addition to our desserts, bellies, and even table centerpieces, so jump on this train ASAP. As always, thank you for supporting brands that make this site possible. Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals and Happy Baking!

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • 1 cup (140 gm) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (113 gm) unsalted butter, cold and chopped
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, cold and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

For the fig, walnut, and blue cheese filling:

  • ¼ cup fig spread
  • 11/2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup (40 gm) finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • For the white chocolate almond filling:
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup (50 gm) finely chopped white chocolate
  • 1/4 cup (30 gm) finely chopped marcona almonds
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • Sprinkling or sanding sugar

Instructions

To prepare the dough:

  1. Pulse the flour and salt in a food processor to combine. Add the butter, cream cheese, and sour cream and pulse, pulse, pulse the mixture until a dough comes together. Don’t overwork it. Pat the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a flat round disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until well-set, a couple of hours or even overnight.
  2. When ready to assemble, roll your disk out onto a lightly floured surface into a round circle, about 1/8-1/4” thick. Make sure your dough isn’t sticking to your surface before you add your filling! For the savory rugelach, spread the fig spread all over the entirety of the dough circle and then sprinkle on the blue cheese and walnuts. For the sweet rugelach, use a pastry brush to paint on the butter and then evenly sprinkle on the white chocolate and almonds. Use a sharp chef’s knife or a pizza cutter to cut the circle into 16 equal-sized wedges. The fat end of each wedge will be about 1” thick. Starting with the wide end, tightly roll up the rugelach until they’re little spiral dough pieces and place each one on a small parchment lined baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Be sure your wedges are tightly rolled so that the rugelach don’t come unrolled in the oven. Place the pan in the freezer for 20 minutes or the fridge for an hour to chill.
  3. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove from the fridge and brush the whisked egg all over each pastry. Sprinkle sugar on the white chocolate pastries. Bake in the preheated oven about 30 minutes, or until the pastries are golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool some before serving.
