What’s my secret to the best blueberry pie?

I have found that cornstarch makes the best fruit pie filling. I’ve tried flour but I find it never solidifies enough, leaving a very wet pie and raw crust.

Besides cornstarch, I use granulated sugar (be sure not to use too much of it – extra sugar produces more liquid in the pie) and add some lemon juice for brightness. Plus, lemon and blueberry go really well together.

That’s it: only 4 ingredients to make an easy blueberry pie filling!

Once you have your filling, just decide on how to top your pie: lattice, double crust, or streusel. How will you top your blueberry pie?

  1. This recipe didn’t work for me at all. Like L. Meux’s & Jude’s comments: my filling didn’t set up at all and the cornstarch felt sandy. I could not serve this pie to my guests. Next time, I’m going to use tapioca as a thickener and pre-cook/cool the filling. Oh well, live and learn!

    1. I’ve used the ratio of cornstarch to fruit for so many pies, so I know it works. Chances are the berries are the culprit when this happens. Did you use fresh or frozen berries? If frozen, be sure to thaw completely and drain well. Also, be sure to bake immediately after mixing. The longer the fruit sits, the more it weeps, regardless of whether you use fresh or frozen fruit.

      1. I user fresh berries. Mixed them and popped them into the crust for baking. Just didn’t work. I’ve since made 2 blueberry pies, using tapioca and cooking 1/2 of the berries. Let it cool, add 2 cups fresh, uncooked berries, fill & bake. It was perfect. Still juicy from the uncooked berries, but firm enough to hold a wedge when sliced

      2. With this recipe, as long as it is completely cool it should be firm. I use this same ratio for all my fruit pies without any issue.
