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.
Super good! Everyone enjoyed it & EASY!!
I don't know what I did wrong. I followed the recipe completely. The filling tasted funny, not very sweet and the crust was mush after I poured the filling in and let it set in the refrigerator. Did I maybe not cook the filling enough?
I have made this twice and we love it. so much better than pie filling because it's not too sweet. I used a shortbread nut crust and it was perfect
