Easy Blueberry Pie Filling

    30 minutes

    My daughter loves blueberries so I like to make this easy pie. You can just as easily use blackberries if they are wild near you (and not sprayed). It's a nice summer dessert served cold with custard or whipped cream.

    Used different ingredients. Very flavourful pie. I added 1/4 tsp vanilla 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 runny, 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!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. 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.  -  21 Jul 2008


    This is an easy, and by far the best, blueberry pie I've ever made. I look forward to making this pie because it's such a treat. Thanks, Nancy.  -  21 Jul 2008
