"This pie is really good. I had a pie crust and blueberries that I wanted to use and found this recipe so I decided to try it. The blueberries and lemon are a great combination. It is a nice summer dessert."

"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."
