Topless Blueberry Pie

"This a no-bake recipe, so on a hot summer day you don't have to turn on the oven, other than to bake your crust. If using frozen blueberries, drain them and use juice instead of water."

INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE, INCREDIBLE! I read that this had a fairly thick cornstarch flavor, so instead of 1 c. water I did 1/4 c. lemon juice and 3/4 c. -- COMPLETELY covers any cornstarch flavor there might have been... I can't taste any at all. :) Thickens nicely -- I used frozen blueberries, but not the kind in syrup. Worked just fine.


This is really nice - and pretty easy. I like blueberry & lemon, so I followed another reviewer and used 1/4c lemon juice to 3/4c water & 2 1/2T cornstarch. I also added a touch of cinnamon. My sauce was perfect, not too thick and no cornstarch taste. I only had 3c bluberries so I used 1c frozen peaches, chopped. Turned out beautifully. Thanks for the recipe, Elaine! UPDATE: 4-19-08, I made this pie using frozen blueberries, orange & lemon juice & zest, and Splenda for a diabetic family member - turned out great! Thanks!


This recipe is exactly what I was looking for. I bought a big bag of frozen blueberries and wanted some recipes to use them in. With the weather getting warmer and warmer, I also wanted to have something that would make a nice cool dessert. My family and I absolutely loved this pie! I read the comments regarding the amount of cornstarch, so I did reduce the amount to 2.5 tablespoons - even with that, it still thickened up very nicely. I can't wait to make another pie like this, as I'm sure this one won't last much longer!
