Blueberry Walnut Pie

"This takes a couple hours to chill. The crust on this pie is really good, and thick. It will fill up your pie plate so press down as much as you can. I used a 9.5 inch pie plate so I was left with about a cup of filling that wouldn't fit...I saved it for a later breakfast topped with some granola. Two 15 oz cans of blueberry's work perfectly for this. :) You can easily get 16 slices from this pie, it is very thick and rich."
