Reviews for Contest-Winning Fresh Blueberry Pie
"This was good, but a little too sweet. I used some blueberries I had frozen since I did not have fresh ones. The frozen ones worked fine. I added the frozen berries to the hot mixture, and it worked well. I will make this again, but I will cut down on the sugar."
"This recipe is FANTASTIC. It set up perfectly for me, and I made it exactly as written. What I love about this recipe is that a portion of the berries are added at the end, and they give it such a great texture because the berries are still reasonably firm and intact when serving. This is a keeper! @imhs1975 - I cool the pie shell a bit before adding the filling (and the filling should also be cool)."
"Should the pie shell be hot or cool before adding the filling?"
"This is a super recipe that was exactly what I was looking for. I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and a shake or two of cardamom. I freeze it in one cup containers to fill coffee cakes, quick breads and as filling for my blueberry cinnamon rolls. I will never use canned blueberry filling again!!"
"This pie is very good. I actually used the filling for another recipe also."
"This pie tasted amazing. My only issue with it was that it ended up being too soggy. It was at least 24 hours before it was somewhat easier to dig it out. Regardless, we will make it again. It only lasted about 2-3 days."
"made mini with this it was fantastic."
"This is an excellent recipe on its own . I have tried to make it with eddiehamilton's variation without much success. Does anyone know how much cream cheese and how much cool whip is needed. Thank you"
"I love this recipe and will make it again and again. But I have to ask about the nutrition information. On the page below the list of ingredients it says each slice has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, etc. While i love the idea of guiltless pie, it would be nice to know the actual stats."
