Reviews for Cape Cod Blueberry Pie
"Oh, my, this is good! The hardest part was waiting for the filling to set! It really highlights blueberries in season."
"This was REALLY good. I will make this again only next time I will add 4 cups of blueberries to the saucepan instead of one cup and add 2 cups whole berries. Family stated there were too many whole berries. Otherwise AWESOME."
"I've never had blueberry pie, but I had lots of blueberries leftover from our strawberry/blueberry shortcake we ate on 4th of July. I decided to try this recipe and it was fantastic! My family loved it and it was so easy to make. The only change I made was to substitute lemon juice instead of vinegar. I will definitely be making this again. I wonder how this recipe would do using blackberries that come into season here next month? I may give that a try. Thank you for the recipe!"
"This pie is Awesome! My husband & 14 yr old daughter love it too! Was looking for a recipe to use up the blueberries in the freezer from last season & found this. So easy to make and I didn't thaw out the blueberries either. I had a package of Pillsberry Frozen pie shells in the freezer to use up and this was enough filling to fill both shells after I baked them. This recipe is so easy to make too. This is the 2nd time making these in the last month. Perfect for a 4th of July picnic!!"
"if u don't have fresh blueberry's... could I use the blueberry pie filling in a can?"
"I followed the directions and didn't change a thing. It was an absolutely delicious pie. Thank you so much for this wonderful recipe."
