Blueberry Crumble Pie

I absolutely love pie! Doesn't matter what kind. My parents brought me a huge batch of blueberries from the farmers market. (Ohhhh summer!) We are eating them but can't keep up! So I thought I'd make a pie, the easy way! Pre-made crusts of course. : ) Mine is in the oven right now. I'll let you know how it turns out!

•2/3 cup sugar
•3 Tbsp. cornstarch
•2 Tbsp. lemon juice
•zest of 1 lemon
•4 cups fresh blueberries (frozen unsweetened blueberries without juice are okay too)
•1 9-inch frozen pie crust, thawed according to package directions

Crumb Topping:
•2/3 cup rolled oats
•1/2 cup all-purpose flour
•1/2 cup firmly-packed brown sugar
•1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
•6 Tbsp. butter

1.Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2.Place sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and lemon zest in a large bowl. Add blueberries. Toss gently to combine.

3.Pour blueberry mixture into pie crust.

4.In a small bowl, stir together oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture becomes crumbly. Spread over blueberries in pie.

5.Place blueberry pie on a baking sheet. Bake 40-50 minutes until blueberries are bubbly and pie crust is golden brown.

6.Let blueberry pie rest 15 minutes before cutting.
