I found this recipe in "I've Got a Cook in Kalamazoo", which was originally published in 1978 by the Kalamazoo, MI Junior League. I've been using it for over 30 years. I love it for its ease and its deliciousness (is that a word? :) Peaches are my favorite fruit dessert, so I usually substitute peaches for the blueberries. But, I have made it with blueberries, apples, strawberries, rhubarb, strawberries & rhubarb, cherries, and mixed berries. This is just yummy!

Very easy to make & tastes delicious! Note: I substituted 2/3 cup of Splenda (rather than 1 1/3 cup sugar) in the filling to reduce the sugar.

This is awesome. I've had the recipe for about 10 years and I bake it all the time because it's really easy to make. When I make it, me and my husband cannot stop going back to the kitchen. You can also try it with apples and just add a pinch of cinammon ant it's great too!! or you can also make it with a mix of berries. The good thing of this is that you are basically learning the method and then you can make it with any fruit you like.
