This is really yummy and I use it for different recipes… one of which just popped into my head… and I will definitely try to post those recipes as I can. You can use fresh or frozen blueberries for this recipe. This can be poured into a prebaked pie shell also.
Blueberry Pie Filling
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 T. cornstarch
- 1/4 c. cold water
- 4-5 c. blueberries
- 1 T. butter or margarine
- 1 T. lemon juice
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and water until smooth in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the blueberries**. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.
Remove from the heat. Add butter and lemon juice, stir until butter is melted. Cool.
**If you like the ‘chunks’ of blueberries in your pie filling you can add 1/2 of the blueberries in this step and add the other half when you add the butter and lemon juice.
