    Unfortunately I did not read Diannekendall's comment before I made this dessert, and the filling melted the ice cream way too much. I gave the pie aboue 3 hrs to refreeze which was not nearly enough time :(. It was still delicious! But it was very soupy. I would definitely put the blueberry pie filling can in the fridge before adding it, and I would give the entire dessert overnight to freeze. I will be making this again, great summer dessert!

    My kids love this and request that I make it every year when our blueberries come in. I just make my own blueberry pie filling and use that instead of canned. Simple!

    It was really good. My 13 year old daughter made three of these for Fourth of July family celebration and they were a hit. Some hints: put blueberry pie filling in the fridge overnight so it does not melt the ice cream. Place frozen pie in fridge for 30 minutes prior to serving, then briefly at room temp. This will help soften it without melting on the outside. Overall, it was quite a hit!

    I have made this recipe several times. It is easy to make and has always gotten good reviews. I will continue to make it. I did decorate the top with a few additional blueberries to add a bit more interest to it.

    Be careful how much you stir the blueberries with the ice cream - or it will all be a pale purple color wihtout the pretty purple & white swirls.
