You’re going to fall in love with this easy recipe for blueberry pie with a graham cracker crust because it tastes so good and is made with only 5 ingredients! It’s an easy 5 ingredient dessert recipe which is perfect for holidays like Thanksgiving or any summertime get together!
Every summer, I buy blueberries in bulk because I love to eat fresh blueberries all year long. I divide up my blueberries into gallon size Ziploc bags and freeze them to use at a later date. This past summer, I did the same with peaches. I talk about it in my post for freezer peach crumble (I also bought bulk blueberries when I bought bulk peaches!)
When I was making this pie, it’s a good thing I had extra blueberries because Ben would not stop eating them!
Seriously, I gave him a small bowl of berries for a snack, then he came back for more. Again and again and again. After awhile, I questioned if I should stop but ya know, I figured he could be eating worse things! So, Ben basically became a blueberry.
I would tell him “take one” and he interpreted it as fist fulls lol! He ate 4 cups total…and some finished pie. No joke!
Back to the pie! This is a no bake pie so it’s super achievable for even the most beginning baker to try. With a few ingredients, you can have this pie ready to eat after a couple hours to chill in your refrigerator.
So gather up the following to make this 5 ingredient dessert:
- corn starch
- lemon juice
- graham cracker crust
What makes this pie stick out as a favorite is that not all of the blueberries are crushed and macerated during the cooking. The reason for that is because we used half of the blueberries to make a sauce and kept half of them whole. It makes every bite sooooo delicious.
When I make recipes, I always love for Nick to try them. Most of the time, I get a general, “yeah it’s good.” Which is a pretty typical husband response, right?! With this recipe though, Nick LOVED it!
He has already requested this pie for Thanksgiving. And when we serve it at Thanksgiving, it will most certainly be served with vanilla ice cream because is there any other way!?
