Blueberry pie problems

hey, like blueberry pie. But i bought some blue berry pie filling and a pie crust no,w i have no idea what to do. My first instinct is to dump the fillin into the pie crust and throw it in the oven. Do i need like a dough cover, or should put like peanuts on top or someting?

What kind of pie crust did you buy? Top and bottom or just bottom?

whipped cream would be good or ice cream, both are done just before you serve.

could also put on a crumb topping. making me hungry

What is a crumb topping?

Fruit pies usually have a top of some kind. Since you don't have a crust for the top, I would suggest a streusel or crumb topping.

If you want to add ice cream or whipped cream, you do that after the pie has cooled down somewhat.

Chip, your bottom crust needs to be cooked. Before you plop the filling in there, just see if it is cooked or not. If it is, dump the filling in and you're fine. If not, cook the bottom crust for a bit, then dump the filling in.

I like the whipped cream idea too. Mmmmmm.

3 tablespoons white sugar
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
pinch salt
5 tablespoons melted butter

toss all of the above to combine, but leave it very lumpy.

Distribute over the top of the pie before baking
