We Northeasterners have been baking this pie since the 18th century. Settlers would’ve used little wild blueberries and topped it with cream. I do, too. —Nancy OConnell, Biddeford, Maine

"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."

"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!!"

"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"
