Reviews for Lemon Blueberry Pie
"This recipe was good. It had a good flavor. The lemon custard on the bottom was delicious! It came together easily. I used frozen blueberries and had to add an additional tablespoon of cornstarch."
"I wonder if this would be good with a meringue layer."
"I just made this in January, so it's nice any time of the year and light! Thanks for the recipe!"
"I cut this out of the original magazine and it sat in my recipe book for years before I tried it .... now it is a regular part of my repertoire and I think it is my personal all time favorite pie. It is a little work intensive but worth it. Note: The "TOTAL TIME" listed at the beginning of the recipe is incorrect. The recipe directions list 20 min. for just part of the first step alone. Also, the first time I made it, I had only 2 c. of blueberries on hand, so used that instead of 3,. Later I tried the 3 c. as listed, but found we like it with only 2 c. better."
"This pie is excellent! I make it every summer. The real lemony flavour pairs well with the blueberries & the touch of orange juice flavouring."
"This has to be one of my favorite pies and it is so refreshing in the summer."
