Basic Blueberry Pie
No frills, just a great basic blueberry pie—oft times the simple things in life are best. Serve topped with a dollop of sweetened whipped cream.
4 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
- Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
- In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, mix together blueberries, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
- Mix cornstarch with water to make a paste. Pour into berry mixture, stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat and let cool.
