This is quick and simple to throw together. I intended to use it as a topping for a cheesecake but it got cloudy upon cooling. I ended up changing my plan as a result. I ll be making some mini pies to use up the filling. Read More

Very simple to make and quite delicious. I used the filling for blueberry turnovers using puff pastry dough I had in the freezer. The blueberries I used were sweet to begin with so I could have reduced the sugar even further. Read More

This was perfect! I only had frozen blueberries so I had to adjust the other ingredients some. The cinnamon really did the trick but like someone else said it was a little bland. Blueberries can be that way. I didn't want to use any lemon so I added about a half teaspoon of salt and that woke it up. My pie was great! Read More

I added one cup sugar, a pinch of nutmeg and juice of one lemon. Boy did that make a difference, we have a sweet tooth in my household. Happy baking ;) Read More

This was very good but (made into a yogurt parfait like I did). It is very low in sugar and even with sweet blueberries is tasty healthy but honestly not sweet enough for a pie. Try it as a parfait on frozen yogurt on a dessert and it will be excellent. I made it just for the fact that it had so little sugar compared to similar recipes. I was tempted to add additional water but do not do that. The blueberries will cook down and make their own. I think fresh is a must with this recipes so as to make the cornstarch work effectively without the excess water. I bought a large pack of blueberries at Sam's Club. I measured the package and it was 3 1/2 cups. So I just made 1/4 of the recipe which made enough for 2 large or 3 small parfaits or a blueberry sauce on other foods. 1/4 of the recipe still took 2 cups of blueberries. The full recipe takes 8. I layered it in a glass with Trader Joes Vanilla Bean yogurt and topped it off with a little lite whipped topping I sprayed on top. I thought it was as good or better in this combination as any blueberry cheesecake I have had. Very creamy. TY Read More

I didn't make any changes. The recipe I always follow the first time I use it. The pie filling was sweet enough for my household and family. I got many complements on it. I made Blueberry Angel Dessert. Everyone was impressed, especially the birthday girl. Read More
