Maine Wild Blueberry Pie

"This pie is the perfect end to a summer meal! I adapted it slightly from a recipe in Coastal New England Summertime Cooking by Sherri Eldridge. I prefer it the second day, after the flavors have had time to meld together. Yum! Cook time includes time for blueberry mixture to sit. You can also dot the top with a small amount of margarine or butter before adding the second crust for a slightly richer texture and flavor."

  1. An excellent tasting pie that we all enjoyed. Of course I used Maine blueberries to make it extra special. I plan on making another one this week!
  2. This blueberry pie has a wonderful flavor that we really enjoyed. I did add some freshly grated lemon zest. Based on the other review, I increased the amount of tapioca to 3 tablespoons. Thanks for posting, we will make this again!
  3. This is super good!!!! I love the filling ingredients!!! The flavor is phenomenal!!!!!! I used a sweet crust recipe and that made it even better!! I used recipe#144878 recipe by Grace at Sweet Grace's here on Zaar. I thought that blueberry pie needed longer to bake but this turned out great in the 35 minutes for this recipe. Thanks for a wonderful recipe for blueberry pie, will make this one again !!!!
  4. My pie wasn't done in the time allotted, although it was golden brown, the filling wasn't set. We couldn't eat it.


I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
