This easy pie is made with fresh blueberries and a homemade or purchased crumb pie shell. The only baking required is 5 minutes for the crust, and you can avoid that if you use a purchased crumb crust.

Use the included vanilla wafer crust for the pie or use a shortbread cookie crumb crust or graham cracker crust.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla wafer crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 cups blueberries (fresh; divided)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water (cold)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Garnish: whipped cream or purchased whipped topping

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C/Gas 4).
  2. In a bowl combine the vanilla wafer crumbs, melted butter, and 3 tablespoons of sugar; mix until all of the crumbs are well moistened. 
  3. Pat the crumbs over the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate.  Bake until the crust is firm, about 8 minutes. Remove to a rack to cool completely.
  4. In a large saucepan combine 2 cups of blueberries, 1/4 cup of sugar and 2 tablespoons water; bring to a full boil. 
  1. Dissolve the cornstarch in 1/4 cup cold water; add to blueberry mixture. Return the berries to the boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in butter, lemon juice and the remaining 4 cups of blueberries. Spoon into the prepared crumb crust. Let the pie stand for 2 to 3 hours, or until set.
  2. Serve with whipped cream or purchased whipped topping.
