"This was so good and so simple! I used 3 pints of blueberries and a deep dish pie pan. Be sure to let the filling cool before putting it into the crust, this will help the crust not get so soggy. I also added an extra tablespoon of cornstarch after reading the reviews and it set up perfectly. So pretty."

MY REVIEW

"This one is a keeper, I bet you could use all kinds of fruit or a combination (strawberry with chocolate crust?). The lengthiest part of this recipe is sorting through the blueberries, once thats done it comes together in 5 minutes. Brushed a shortbread crust with egg & baked for 5 minutes as the crust called for. Kept the crust from being soggy and made it sturdy & easy to cut. As others said, the addition of the fresh blueberries gives it texture and flavor and pop..literally. The fresh blueberries pop and crunch in your mouth between the delicious fresh made jell filling. Not too sweet, the berries are sweet enough, I might add a smidgen of cinnamon next time. It set up and cut beautifully, better than I had thought since some reviews said otherwise. Next time I see blueberries priced for quick sale at the market, all I need is a crust and its time for pie. Everything else is on hand, my favorite kind of recipe."
