Is it possible to use frozen huckleberries? Also, can I omit the nuts from the crust?

I have made this numerous times with blueberries. It is phenomenal! I use walnuts in the crust. When baking the crust mixture, I reduce the oven temp to 350 & only bake it 10 minutes otherwise it would be burnt to a crisp.

Made this according to the recipe, using fresh picked huckleberries (we live in Montana). It is absolutely one of the VERY BEST DESSERTS I HAVE EVER TASTED!!! I served it at a dinner party and all the guests just loved it! The texture is wonderful - does not fall apart when sliced. I would give this one 10 stars if I could! This one is a must-make!!

I made this with a traditional pie crust. It was great. Would definitely make again
