This recipe uses half cooked and half fresh blueberries for a yummy flavor. My family has enjoyed this for over 30 years. I'm proud to say my 'kids' 2 males, 2 females are all good cooks and a grandson is about to enter a culinary college.

I made this for Father's day and it was SO delicious. It's 4 stars because the instructions were not clear and that made me feel very insecure while making the pie. If anyone else is lost and is using a top pie crust as well, this is what I did: 1. I laid a 9inch pre-made Pillsbury pie crust in a glass pie pan, baked it at 350 degrees for 10 minutes BEFORE EVERYTHING. 2. Pulled it out of the oven and poured a box of blueberries in the semi-baked shell. 3. Combined the rest of the ingredients in a sauce pan, including the remaining 2pints of blueberries. 3. Cooked it for lower heat until the sauce pan was high in blueberry sauce. You can add cinnamon or vanilla if you want. 4. Poured it on top of the uncooked blueberries in the pie, added a top criss-cross pie layer and baked it at 450 for about 11-13 minutes. Read More

This was okay. It needed more cornstarch or flour as it was very watery. I wouldn't make this again but it was easy. Read More

This is an easy, and by far the best, blueberry pie I've ever made. The second time I tried it I made some changes: added 1/4t each vanilla and almond extract, and 1/8t cinnamon (will up it to 1/4t next time to try that). I changed the ratio of berries to 1 1/2C fresh and 2 1/2C cooked. I found 1/3C sugar worked well when serving the pie with ice cream. I look forward to making this pie because it's such a treat. Thanks, Nancy. Read More

I made this pie last night and it was excellent! I'm not a baker at all but this turned out wonderful using ready-made pie crusts. I bought 2 bottom crusts and used one as the top crust. I modified the recipe by adding in some strawberries and cinnamon. I baked the bottom crust for about 10 minutes and set aside to cool. I cooked the pie filling using 2 cups of frozen blueberries (thawed rinsed and drained) and 1 cup of fresh sliced strawberries. I followed recipe exactly except for adding in 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. I put the fresh blueberries into the bottom crust then poured the cooked filling on top put on the top crust and baked for another 15 minutes until browned. I served it with whipped cream. It was delicious! My daughter who claimed she didn't like pie gobbled up a whole piece! I chose this recipe because it didn't use cornstarch. The filling tasted very fresh and the fresh blueberries were still firm and just popped in your mouth. Next time I think I'll reduce the sugar just a bit and I might even try my hand at making my own pie crust. Thanks for an awesome recipe! Read More

This recipe is SUPER easy and SUPER delish! I baked it for some friends and they gobbled it right up. We picked blueberries so they were very fresh and large and the pie was just the right amount of sweet and tart. The lemon juice isn't overpowering and the fact that a layer of blueberries isn't cooked means you'll have a pie that won't completely fall apart or get runny. This is my new blueberry pie recipe - why mess with perfection? Read More

The taste was wonderful however when cooking the blueberries the flour butter and lemon juice mixture was so thick and did not loosen even when the blueberries started to pop. I added more butter and lemon juice and it helped. Next time I will not use as much flour. But I will definately make it again. Read More

This was the first time I've ever made blueberry pie. The only blueberry pie I've eaten is store-brought and this was better. I never liked the overly-sweet pudding-consistency texture of pies and this was not too sweet nor too gooey. I loved actually tasting the blueberry. Ate it with vanilla ice cream and it was too delicious for words. I scarfed it down and so did my brother who usually calls my baking. He didn't even try to disguise his pleasure this time asking me to bake another one. I followed suggestions and used a teaspoon of cinnamon plus half-teaspoons of vanilla and almond extract. Now I was slightly puzzled on how to put a top-pie-crust on it. The recipe doesn't describe baking. So after I finished all the instructions I baked the pie for ten minutes at 450 degrees F - with a top lattice-strip crust. It didn't affect the rest of the pie too much. Still wonderful! Read More

Very flavorful pie. I added 1/4 tsp vanilla almond extract and cinnamon. I also used more berries. Even though I forgot to add flour it still turned out delicious! (I won't make that mistake again). It was a little running but not a disaster. Just a note: it's important to taste the berries before you begin so you can adjust the sugar accordingly. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!

The best blueberry pie I've made. It has that fresh blueberry taste because it isn't baked. Great for dessert after a bbq. Be sure to refrigerate before serving though orelse it will fall apart. Great recipe! Read More
