Reviews for Cape Cod Blueberry Pie
"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."
"Really EASY & DELICIOUS!!!!! I baked a pillsbury pie crust instead of making my own....fresh blueberries are the best but using frozen blueberries works just add 1/2 tbsp. More of flour to thicken.....used lemon juice to replace vinegar and added a dash of cinnamon....A"
"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!!"
"This pie is the best blueberry pie I have ever eaten. If you have access to fresh blueberries make this pie. I have even made it with a truvia sugar blend and it came out great. My husband loves it."
"By far the best blueberry pie I have ever eaten. Never use canned pie filling."
"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."
"Made this pie for Memorial Day weekend and to a person, everyone there said it was THE best blueberry pie they'd ever tasted. Super easy to make, I was lazy and used a store bought pie shell (deep dish). :D"
