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 recipe is SUPER easy and delish! I baked it for some friends and they ate 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. - 21 Jul 2008
