Fresh Blueberry Pie Tips
Should I thaw frozen blueberries before baking them in a pie?
No, you don't need to thaw frozen blueberries before baking! The heat of the oven (or in this recipe, the heat of the stovetop) will thaw the berries. Blueberries are one of the best berries to use frozen in a pie because they have thick skins and retain their moisture and juiciness without becoming mushy.

Why is my blueberry pie runny?
There are a few reasons why your blueberry pie is runny. To avoid a runny pie, make sure to cook the berries with cornstarch for two minutes. The cornstarch will cook and thicken the fruit’s juices and prevent your pie filling from becoming too runny. Learn more about thickening a pie filling
How do you know when blueberry pie is done?
For blueberry pies baked in the oven, you can tell when the pie is done when the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. When preparing the filling on a stovetop, like this blueberry pie recipe
