Easy  Blueberry Pie

My girls absolutely love blueberries, they just can’t get enough of them in the summertime. I love the fact that they are just so good for you, so we really stock up on blueberries & try to find local places where we can pick them to get even more.  Blueberries are a pretty universally popular fruit, which makes it the perfect fruit to use in pies for holidays such as the 4th of July. Now that we are starting June, I thought this would be the perfect time to share a favorite family recipe that my grandma made for years & my aunt now makes for summertime gatherings with the family. It’s a must-have staple at all of our 4th of July gatherings  It is my absolute favorite blueberry pie recipe and it’s really quite simple to make – you can make this in less than 30 minutes (with time to cool in the fridge) for a easy dessert to bring to a gathering.

Cream Cheese Mixture on Crust for Easy Blueberry Pie

Layer this mixture on top of the graham cracker crust.

Cook the blueberries by heating up 1 cup of blueberries with 1 cup of water in a small saucepan. Boil for 3-4 minutes & stir regularly.

Strain the cooked blueberries and put the strained liquid back into the saucepan on low.

Place the cooked blueberries on top of the cream cheese/sugar/whipped cream layer in the pie pan.

Combine the strained blueberry liquid with 2/3 cup of sugar, 2 tbsp cornstarch and 1/2 tsp cinnamon on the stove while stirring. Stir well until it’s thickened on low-medium heat.
