For the Dough:
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose or bread flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 ounces cold unsalted butter cut into chunks
- 4 to 5 tablespoons ice cold water
- 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of milk whisked to make an egg wash

For the Filling:
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 1 cup of sugar

In a food processor add in the flour and salt and pulse to mix.
Next add in the butter and pulse until the butter is the size of a small grain.
Slowly drizzle in the water while pulsing until it is combined.
Lightly dust a clean surface with flour and roll out the dough until it is 14 to 16 inches big and transfer it to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator until ready to use.
In a large bowl mix together the berries, sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, lemon juice, and lemon juice using a rubber spatula.
Pour the mixed berries into the center of the dough and fold up the dough on all sides to the center.
Brush the outside of the dough with the egg wash and sprinkle the turbinado sugar on top.
Bake at 375° for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve warm or completely cooled with optional whipped cream.
