Cool and zesty, a refreshing summertime treat. I make these pies in regular pie shells, not deep dish fruit shells.

Loved this pie! I used a deep dish pie shell & poured all the filling in one shell I halved the meringue ingredients & I did use 1 & 1/2 cups of blueberries but I think that needs to be decreased by half a cup. Next time I may try using frozen blueberries... I think the fresh had a little more crunch than they ideally should. I garnished w/ a bed of crushed lemon drop candies a tiny sprig of mint & several blueberries. Beautiful & yummy! Read More

This is a wonderful recipe! It is quick and very easy to make as well as delicious. Two suggestions I have are to double the filling recipe (one batch of meringue is plenty) and to chill the pies well before eating so they have a chance to set. It definitely a recipe I will use again and again! Read More

This recipe only makes one pie not two (the meringue is for two) but my what a pie it makes. I've had wonderful comments on it. I use a graham cracker crust for an extra crispy foundation. Read More

After reading other reviews I decided to only make one pie. I like more filling in mine. It came together so easily and beautifully! The flavor is great but the filling is a little sweet. Next time I think I'll mix a block of cream cheese in with the lemon and blueberries to cut down on the sweetness. Read More

Tasty pie but this could have used a little more lemon flavor and a lot more filling. I made one pie but should have used the whole filling recipe as there just wasn't much of it. I did enjoy the snap of the fresh blueberries in the filling. Read More

Good recipe I did make a couple of changes and it worked out great for me. This is one I will keep.I added some lemon zest and doubled the amount of lemon juice called for in the recipe and only made one pie instead of two pies. My husband said it was a keeper and coming from him that is great!!!!! Read More
