- Wrap dough pieces in cling wrap and chill 30 minutes.
- Roll out the larger portion of dough, fit it into a 9" pie plate and set into the refrigerator while preparing filling.
- Preheat the oven to 400F and place the oven rack in the lowest position.
- Combine 1 cup of blueberries, water and the sugar in a small pot and place over medium heat.
- Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is melted - 5 minutes.
- In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch, tapioca flour and orange juice.
- Stir starch mixture into the cooking berries and cook gently until the mixture thickens and turns clear.
- Remove from heat and stir in the zests and nutmeg, then fold in remaining berries and pour into the pie shell.
- Roll out remaining pastry and cut strips from it.
- Brush edges of dough with the cornstarch mixture.
- Weave a lattice pattern with the pastry strips on top of the mixture and brush with remaining cornstarch mixture.
- Place pie on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Reduce temperature to 375F.
