I really wanted to hurry up and post this recipe soon after the pancake party because I wanted to get it on here before the fresh blueberries are out of season! This is one of my all-time favorite summer desserts. Cool, refreshing and flavorful. And healthy ’cause it is pretty much all fruit. Good enough for this pregnant lady! I love how the fresh blueberries almost pop in your mouth with every bite. You’ll love this pie. I promise.

My mother-in-law deemed this “one of the best pies she has ever had.” Quite the compliment! My husband liked it too and my daughter? Oh my oh my.

“Blue blues! Blue blues! Blue blues!” Is what comes out of her mouth every times she even SEES a blueberry. She loves them. Can’t get enough of them. Needless to say, she was all about this pie. If you were eating this pie, I can guarantee there was a cute little almost-two-year-old hanging out near you begging…saying “pwwweesse, blue blues!” 

Just try to resist that.

  • 1 refrigerated pie crust (or your own recipe if you prefer!)
  • 6 cups fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • whipped cream (optional)–I whipped my own with just a touch of sugar since the pie is very sweet.


  1. Cook the pie crust as directed on the package for a single crust pie. Cool completely before adding filling
  2. Meanwhile, wash the blueberries and pick out any duds and any stems.
  3. Combine 3 cups of blueberries, sugar, salt and cornstarch in a medium to large-sized saucepan (you’ll be adding everything else to the same pan later). Pour in the water. Mix together and cook ever medium-high heat. Cook until the mixture comes to a boil, and then continue to cook for two minutes. You want it to get super thick and for your blueberries to start breaking down.
  4. Finish this mixture by adding butter and lemon juice. Cool before adding the fresh blueberries. You want them to stay plump and fresh!. When mixture has cooled, fold in the remaining 3 cups of berries. Pour into cooled, prepared crust.
  5. Chill for at least 2-3 hours before serving with whipped cream.

Verdict: Love this recipe. It one of those that is going to HAVE to be made every year.
Husband’s take: He also loved this pie. This one was a hit all around.
Changes I would make: None! No way!
Difficulty: Easy. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool and set up in the fridge.

  1. I make this every year with raspberries and blackberries that I grow. I use them for the cooked portion and mix in the blueberries after cooked. It’s amazing!

  2. :( Picked fresh blueberries and decided to make this. My berries weren’t breaking down at 2 min so I cooked another 2-3 min. Sauce still wasn’t super thick but figured it should be enough being berries were popping. Pie never set up. (This was my first shot at a no bake pie like this) :(

    • Did you cook for 2-3 minutes AFTER the mixture comes to a boil? Did you remember to add the cornstarch and reserve half the berries to stir in after cooking? This pie never fails for me and everyone that tries it so something tells me maybe something went wrong along the way. I’d love to help you troubleshoot…this is one of my favorite recipes!

  3. Do you think I could use frozen berries for this pie?

  4. I made this pie and was astonished at how I could slice right through it, without and oozing out of blueberries.  I had no sloppy mess, just one delicious pie! I am going to try this with mini cherry pies.

  5. This pie is amazing!! I’ve made it two summers in a row, and my husband and I can’t get enough of it. It tastes so fresh and flavorful. I use an almond meal crust for it which complements the blueberries nicely. Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  6. This was pretty good but too salty and too much lemon juice for me. I think a 1/4tsp of salt would be good for me. ;) it was better the next day too. Set up more where when I sliced it it stayed together better. Maybe I needed a bit more cornstarch as I cooked for the amount of time stated. Good pie though.

  7. I love it, followed your recipe step by step and it taste delicious, thanks for the recipe Rachel

  8. I’ve never had cold blueberry pie. No self control I guess ;)

    I love to make blueberries with cinnamon, vanilla and red wine, like a good merlot or cabernet sauvignon. They taste AMAZING cooked in spices, butter and red wine. Its hard to go wrong with blueberries though.

  9. This is just what I was looking for – a topless blueberry pie for tonight. Your pictures are beautiful. Thank you!

  10. I just made this. I feel like my pie filling isn’t standing up as well as yours. I did make my own graham cracker crust though which is heavenly. Where do you find corn starch at the store? I can only find corn meal…

    • Hi Ley!
      The cornstarch is of utmost importance in this pie setting up. Otherwise it will just be a big juicy mess. Cornstarch is typically found in the baking aisle of most supermarkets. Common brands are ARGO or Clabber Girl, both which happen to be in yellow/blue containers. There is usually a store brand as well. Good luck!

  11. I haven’t made blueberry pie yet this season, but you are tempting me! Your pictures are breathtakingly perfect!

  12. I love the way they look in the pictures…I am sure I will love every mouthful of this blueberry treat. yummy!

  13. This looks delicious! I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blueberry pie without a top crust, but it’s so much prettier this way!

  14. Oh my, I love the idea of a fresh blueberry pie. I love fresh strawberry pie, so why not blueberries? Must try this! Yours looks fantastic :D

  15. This is gorgeous, I just love your photos!

  16. This looks so good and so fresh! Mike LOVES blueberries so I’m guessing he would love this pie as much as your daughter did :)

  17. I am SO making this pie this weekend! Having a little get together with the family and I am going to knock their socks off with this pie, I just know it!

  18. I am wishing this was in my house this morning – it would have made for an awesome breakfast!! Did you snack on this all day!? It wouldn’t have lasted more than 24 hours in my house!!

  19. This pie is GORGEOUS! Wowzers. I would love to dig right into a slice for breakfast right now!!! :)

  20. I can see why your mother-in-law deemed this the best pie she’d ever had. It looks amazing! So, so good.

  21. I’d have such a hard time waiting for the pie to cool. Beautiful Rachel. Perfect for the abundant blueberries

  22. That is serious pie right there…so gorgeous!!

  23. Blueberry pie is my absolute favorite kind, and I’ve never had it without a top crust! I never even considered making it that way, but I love the idea…the more filling to crust ratio, the better, in my opinion.

  24. wow, this pie is FILLED with blueberries – you weren’t kidding on the name! haha, love the deep, intense blue color :) i especially love your daughter calling them “blues blues!”

  25. Wow, that pie is chock full of blueberries, looks so yummy!

  26. Absolutely wonderful! I use 2 crusts just because that’s what my family likes. There is nothing in the world like a fresh blueberry pie! Our season ends early down here in Florida, but we always pick plenty to go in the freezer.

  27. Beautiful pie! I love how easy it is to make!

  28. Ooohhh!!! I can’t wait to have some time again to make this! I looove blueberries.

  29. Gorgeous! My girls love blueberries too, so they would devour this pie. As a mom of little ones, all I can think about is how I would make them take their shirts off to eat it (I’m kind of obsessed with trying to prevent stains). This pie looks so good that it would probably be worth getting a stain to eat it (a little one, maybe).

  30. Beautiful pie! My kids love blueberries too.

  31. Oh my heavens. Blueberry pie has been on my list to make all summer. This looks SO good!!!

  32. This pie looks insane–I’m with E, totally will be hanging over people’s chairs begging for a piece. :)

    P.S. I love that it’s simple, too!

  33. now THAT is some blueberry action in your pie – so thick and plentiful…love blueberries!

  34. This sounds just like my momma’s blueberry pie! It’s so good! Your pictures are awesome. Happy Pie Eating ; )

  35. This pie is a beauty! Lovely job :)

  36. Such a pretty colour, I love how rich that dark purple of the blueberries is.

  37. this pie looks absolutely heavenly! I love how the blueberries have kept their structure and not gotten all mushed up!

  38. Blueberry pie would be my all time favorite pie. I grew up on wild blueberries in Maine and pie for breakfast was common. Your pie is beautiful!
