Capture the fresh taste of blueberries in a pie. This pie will disappear fast--you won't have to worry about what to do with the leftovers

- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup sugar (or more depending on sweetness of berries)

- Remove from oven, remove parchment/beans, prick bottom with fork, return to oven and bake until golden brown.
- Remove from oven let cool on rack for 2 minutes.
- Brush entire crust with egg white.
- Measure out 1 cup of the softest blueberries and place them in a medium saucepan with 1/2 cup water, cover and bring to a boil.
- Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water until well blended, set aside.
- when water and blueberries come to a boil, lower the heat to simmer and stir constantly for 3-4 minutes until the berries start to burst and the juices start to thicken.

Excellant blueberry pie Steve!!! I used a bought pie shell (lazy),so didn't bother with the egg white. Very quick and easy filling, we're trying to use up our berries in the freezer before the new ones come along, this was a great way to do it. Served it with whipped cream as instructed, it was sumptuous!! Thanks for a keeper, I may try some of our other berries next time.
Fresh, light, simple and DELICIOUS! I added a touch of rum flavoring to the fresh whipped cream. My dinner guests all asked for seconds...and the recipe!
Excellent recipe! I liked the fact that not all of the berries were cooked. So fresh tasting! I used a pre-made graham cracker crust shell, so I skipped the part about the egg white. I will make this again and again. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
