Blueberry Custard Meringue Pie Recipe

This recipe is the result of combining two other recipe and blueberries. It is so delicious you would never believe it is a lighter recipe.—Donna A. Hess, Chambersburg, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. + chilling YIELD:8 servings


  • 10 whole reduced-fat graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 6 tablespoons sugar


  • 1. Place graham crackers in a food processor; cover and process until fine crumbs form. Add butter and egg white; cover and process until blended. Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 2. For filling, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly.
  • 3. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in blueberries and vanilla. Pour into crust.
  • 4. For meringue, in a small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  • 5. Spread over hot filling, sealing edges to crust. Bake at 350° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour; refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

"A heads up -- the prep time is longer than 20 minutes -- and 10 graham crackers are NOT enough. I made 2, and using 30, was barely able to get the minimum possible crust. I would recommend doubling the ingredients for that to get a decent crust. Other than that -- a great recipe! I almost didn't want to put the custard into the crust."
