Reviews for Contest-Winning Fresh Blueberry Pie
"I have made this for several years!! Will never make the per one again! This is so easy and so good!"
"I have fresh blueberries that I had froze. Do you think I can use them and if so should I thaw them first?"
"Have made it three times already. Most definitely award winning! Thanks a bunch."
"Made this pie to use up some of my homegrown blueberries. I used a premade graham cracker crust(I'm lazy) and took it to a church dinner-I didn't even get a piece before it was gone. Many great remarks though-I will surely make it again."
"Seriously? I emailed this recipe to someone and a subscription request was all she received. The recipe looks good though."
