"this has to be the best blueberry pie recipe I have tried. I didn't have tapioca so I used cornstarch and that worked well. it was juicy but not runny. ..." See more"
"I used this recpie for my town's pie baking contest - I have never baked a blueberry pie before (I come from South Africa where we don't have lots of blueberries!) - and it came in second place by one..." See more point! I did up the temperature for the balance of the cooking time - after the ten minutes I reduced the oven to 400F for about 25 minutes. I think the cooking time depends on what pastry crust you use. I was very excited when the judges cut the pie to see that it was juicy but not runny - and I used frozen blueberries that I rinsed in a strainer and left to drain for a while."
"How much of a difference a half inch makes! I used a 9.5 inch pie plate instead of a 9, and was wishing I had used 6 cups of blueberries instead of 4. Tapioca produces much better results than corns..." See moretarch. I forgot to add butter to the filling. There was no adverse effect to the filling. In the future, I will probably leave this out on purpose to make a dent in the saturated fat. This is my preferred recipe for blueberry pie."
