"I added an extra tsp of cornstarch and it was the perfect blueberry pie filling. I poured it into a pre-baked shortbread crust I made using girl scout cookies. I also made a crumble using butter, flour, sugar and a pinch of cinnamon which I baked in the oven then sprinkled on top of the blueberry pie filling. My husband loved it."
