Made this pie a few times now. We love it with ice cream on top! Crust is tender and berries are just sweet enough for us.

My goodness, is there nothing better than pie? NOPE! We loved this pie and used frozen blueberries I had stocked in the freezer, but wished I had some wild Maine blueberries that we love so much. This pie is easy, homey, and more comfortable than a down pillow. Thanks so much for sharing, MimiMaine, and from one New Englander to another, this pie rocks! Made it for PickMe tag.

I used those huge blueberries from the grocery store to make this and it was delicious! I can only imagine how luscious it would have been with wild blueberries! We had it warm with icecream and enjoyed it very much. I will make two pies next time cause one wasn't enough!

I bought a whole bunch of blueberries on sale, and this was the first thing I made. Mmmm good with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Nothing like blueberry pie at my house and this one is sure to please your palate. Fresh plump blueberries were used. Not as good as native New England blueberries but still good. This is what I will use from now on to make mine. Sweet but not too sweet. Great with ice cream too!

Delicious. We used pillsbury pie crusts and made 2 pies -- one for dinner and one for the freezer. We also skipped the lemon juice but will probably add it next time. Thanks for sharing!
