(from rosie’s recipe box)
I put in 4 tbsp of cornstarch instead of 3 tbsp, and it set without a problem. Also, I added a splash of lemon juice to the blueberry mixture for some extra flavor, and I covered the edges of the pie crust with aluminum foil until the last 15 minutes (to prevent overbrowning).
I would advise changing the oven temperature to 375 degrees because even after covering the edge of the crust it still got a little overdone on 425 degrees. I would also not cook it on the bottom rack, but the middle rack. Finally, wait at least 1 hour before cutting to let the cornstarch do its thing or you will end up with to much juice. FRESH BLUEBERRYS ARE THE TICKET!!
Top with vanilla ice cream.
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
- 1 tablespoon butter
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Mix sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over blueberries.
Line pie dish with one pie crust. Pour berry mixture into the crust, and dot with butter. Cut remaining pastry into 1/2 – 3/4 inch wide strips, and make lattice top. Crimp and flute edges.
Bake pie on lower shelf of oven for about 50 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
