Ingredients

5 tablespoons
unsalted butter (melted)

▶︎ Instructions

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9” pie pan.
     
  2. To make the crust: Combine the ingredients, and press the mixture into the bottom and up the side of the pan. Freeze the crust for 15 minutes (this will prevent over-browning), then bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until it’s lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
     
  3. To make the filling: In a large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add water, stirring until smooth. Stir in 2 cups of blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
     
  4. Gently stir remaining blueberries into cooled blueberry mixture. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled, 1-2 hours. Serve with whipped cream.
