This recipe is written on an old faded recipe card that was given to my mom years ago. It's been my mom's standard (and perhaps only) blueberry pie recipe. This past weekend when my sister's family came to visit, I made this pie from our own freshly picked blueberries. Everyone loved it, even my niece and nephew who claim they dislike blueberries!!
Prebaked pie crust
5 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon butter (I wasn't reading the instructions, so I missed the part about adding the butter. No one missed it!)
Slightly sweetened whipped cream
Combine 2 cups blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and water in pot and cook over medium heat until thick. Remove from heat and add butter. Cool. (Once again, I didn't read the instructions and failed to cool.) Add the remaining 3 cups of blueberries and fill pie crust. Chill in refrigerator several hours or overnight until cold. Serve with whipped cream.
