I have a recipe for blueberry pie filling pie filling that requires cooking, but this was made much more simply, just fresh berries, tapioca and a little sugar thrown into a pie crust and

Blueberries are everywhere in my kitchen, as I’ve already been five times to the Golden Bell Blueberry Farm. I also made blueberry buttermilk muffins with cinnamon top,  and a real favorite, my blueberry thyme biscuits

  1. Your pies look wonderful. I just realized I must have missed the big blueberry sale at Marsh this year. Normally they have 5-pound boxes and we buy several so we have blueberries throughout the year. I like your idea of the crumble on top instead of a crust. Thank you for sharing a great recipe!

  2. Blueberry pie is delicious, especially with fresh picked blueberries! If you ever go out picking and have too many berries that you don’t know what to do with them, freezing is always a good option.
