Blueberry pie is a perfect summer dessert. Yes, it's pie; but blueberries are one of the healthiest foods around, and they require no pitting or peeling.

On the Martha Stewart Show, Martha substituted 1/4 cup cornstarch with 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons flour.

Cook's Notes

To make an extra-wide lattice-top crust, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick, and cut four 3-inch-wide strips. Chill the strips until firm. Weave the strips over the filling, and seal the lattice to the side of the bottom crust with a wash of egg and milk.

    Absolutely perfect, bought 3 pints of berries (I decided on a whim to make a blueberry pie while at the local market) which gave me only 6 cups of berries :( . But it was perfect, strong berry flavour and not excessively sugary sweet like a lot of recipes. Made the Pate Brisee in the food processor with frozen butter. The pastry is devine, the frozen butter pre-chills the crumb mixture setting it for a perfect mix with the ice water.

    this is a terrible recipe. I followed the recipe to the "T" and it was inedible. I would not put in the lemon juice, and it needs more sugar. I'd suggest that the recipe be changed to to tell you to taste the filling before covering it, and add sugar to taste. Usually Martha's recipes are great, so I just followed it. Later I found many comments regarding the sweetness. But it was too late.

    I'm making this blueberry filling now--as for comments about sweetness--always taste. Am using frozen blueberries and I've got the filling ingredients in a bowl with the frozen blueberries--allowing the berries to thaw and macerate. Before I put into the pie shell, I plan on tasting the mixture--is it sweet enough? If not, I'll add more sugar, need a little something else? I'll add a dash of cinnamon, maybe more lemon juice, orange zest...the answer to the question of flavor is to taste.

    This is the third time I've done this pie, the flavor comes different every time, and this means that sometimes is to sweet ot too tart, this I think is due to the ripeness of the blueberries. So my suggestion is to add a little bit more sugar, like a tablespoon when the blueberries aren't that sweet. It'll make the difference.

    Great recipe. I used my own pie crust instead. But as for the filling it was good. I used the FULL 1/4c cornstarch in the recipe (didn't watch video or see prev review). It was fine. Actually, if I make it again I'll probably add 2 more tbs of cornstarch as the filling was still a little runny for what I would have liked. So it's a matter of taste how much you would use. But the 1/4 c is fine.

    I made the star cut out version for the 4th and it was amazing! Everyone raved about it. So much so, I made another. I found the blueberries to be over ripe and not sweet or tangy. SO I increased sugar to a cup, cornstarch to 1/4 cup plus a tablespoon, 4 tablespoons lemon juice. It came out super sweet, tangy and delicious! Better than the first! Be sure to let it bake until it boils over a little. Will be making for every fourth of july now!
