Fresh Blueberry Pie

Printable Recipe

This special recipe does not have a pie-crusted top, and uses fresh blueberries and less sugar!  Seasonal, and delicious.


  • 9 or 10 inch prepared, baked pie shell
  • 5 or 6 cups fresh, washed blueberries
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • ½ cup sugar (less if the berries are very sweet)
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • ½ cup water


  1. Wash and drain blueberries well.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch and whisk to combine. Add water and whisk until smooth. Add 1 cup of the blueberries and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook until the mixture is clear and quite thick. Add lemon zest and juice.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the fresh blueberries with the prepared glaze and fill the pie shell.
  4. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving with whipped cream or ice-cream.
