This pie was super easy and super yummy! I also made the homemade crust and fumbled with it a bit, but all in all it turned out very nice!
Pie looked beautiful, especially the crust but the filling never thickened. I used the 1/4 cup cornstarch as a thickener. Very disappointing.
So sorry to hear that, Rhys! It’s entirely possible your blueberries were extra juicy and sometimes that happens. Fruit has lots of variables and we try to control for them as best we can.
My first blueberry pie! Done in a rush before my Zumba class but with perfect result. Followed directions and measurements!Did not have real butter but did it with alternative vegetable spread-did not spoil the crust!Will be doing it again.Saved – thank you!
Loved everything about this pie!! The crust was amazing! Some of my guests thought the lemon zest or juice was a bit strong so I might try to cut it in half next time. The directions were easy to follow for the filling, and I found the video for making the crust was super helpful! I will definitely be making this again! Thanks so much for sharing!
Terrific Dawn, I’m so glad you liked the pie!
I followed the recipe except for the cornstarch. ( didnt have any) i used 1/2 cups of flour and it thickened perfectly uwu!
Tastes great but the filling refuses to thicken. I did everything right and nearly doubled the amount of thickener in it. It is still just a soup even though it has been sitting outside (it is about 8 degrees F outside) for hours and will not thicken. Is there anything I could do to make it thicken or is it a lost cause?
Hi Bella, that’s weird. Perhaps it just needed to cook longer? Don’t know what to tell you.
I left it in for an extra 20 mins and even went as far as taking out the filling and trying to cook it on the stove top. It thickened but then within the next hour it was back to soup.
What was the thickener you used?
Thank you, I have been intimidated by pie crust and lived your ez method and the pie is AMAZING!!!
I’m so glad you liked it CarolAnn!
Does it have to sit in the fridge overnight? It’s soup? I cut into it and it’s all soupy maybe more cornstarch??
Hi Autmnmss, you do need to let the pie cool all the way down to room temperature before cutting into it. That said, I always make this pie with fresh blueberries and the cornstarch/thickener amount reflects that. Are you using fresh or frozen berries? If you are using frozen berries, you may need to bump up the cornstarch levels a bit to 6 Tbsp.
Mine is a mess cut into it too soon and it’s a soup don’t know what I did wrong
This is an amazing recipe, I made this again tonight for my son’s birthday using Splenda instead of granulated sugar and corn starch as for thicken. This had become his favorite pie. I did sprinkle Splenda on top of the egg wash before baking.
I made it and used quick cooking tapioca. The pie has no moisture that I can see and the tapioca didn’t dissolve (I just took it out of the oven and I can see it through the slits in the crust). I followed the recipe exactly. I don’t know what I did wrong.
Loved it! First attempt at homemade pie crust and it was fantastic. Followed recipe exactly except cooked for longer.
BEST BLUEBERRY PIE…EVER!!! But increase sugar by 1/4 cup. I had no lemon zest, only lemon juice. It worked just fine.
I made this pie and it’s wonderful! The only modification I would make is to add more sugar.This reminded me of a tart cherry pie even with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Next time I will add a quarter cup more of granulated sugar.
Delicious! My family ate it within a day.
This pie is just amazing ! I’ll keep the receipe to make it again and again !
I’m so glad you like it Caroline!
I always make this pie for our family reunion. The first year I made one , night mistake. 2 pies are mandatory. I have 1st place several years in a row I don’t like blueberries but my family LOVES this pies. Super easy to make
Delicious,. My daughter Cathy made it for my birthday.
Amazing.! Use the same ingredients for my peach and mixberry pie! Winning recipe!
Thanks! And the blue berries are put to a higher level: pies are magnificent!!!
