MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 25, 2013

"This is a favorite when I can get fresh blueberries to top the pie with, haven't tried it with all frozen blueberries. We like the texture and flavor of the fresh berries as the top layer. I use a graham cracker crust when time is short. My sister requests this pie and offers to supply the berries if I will make it."

"I love making this pie! It uses less blueberries than a baked pie but has a fantastic fresh taste. Everyone asks me for this recipe!"

MY REVIEW

"This pie is excellent. Takes a lot of blueberries and takes a little extra effort to make - but it is well worth it. The pie is rated as a favorite by everyone who has tasted it."
