THE one and only blueberry pie recipe you’ll ever need. My mom knows blueberry pie is my favorite and it’s one recipe I postponed making for the longest time because I really enjoy it when she makes it for me. 
I love how some recipes are exactly the same as when you were young. This blueberry pie holds some special memories for me. And just thinking about it makes me feel so wonderful.
My mom is happy to share her Blueberry Pie Recipe with me and all of you. She’s been making this pie my whole life, and it’s always so delicious.
Really it’s the BEST blueberry pie I’ve ever had. And trust me, I order pie everywhere I go!

I prefer my blueberry pie COLD…

so she makes it the day before.

That way it has plenty of time to get cold, and as you can see as you slice it, the pie doesn’t fall apart… I kinda like that A LOT!

As you can see the pie is full of blueberries. It’s a thick pie with a double crust. Just perfect if you ask me.

Should I use fresh or frozen blueberries?

You can use either one. My mom says she’s used both and even a combination of them in pies with great results. Do not thaw the frozen blueberries if you use frozen berries, put them in the pie frozen.

What can I use instead of tapioca to thicken the pie filling?

You can use 1/4 cup cornstarch instead of tapioca, but my mom prefers the tapioca.

  1. That pie is SO gorgeous! Pie crusts are the bane of my existence, but I'll give Mom's a try. I would happily make one of these and just serve it for dinner tonight … ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. this looks amazing…and just in time because i was at smart and final this afternoon and they have blueberries on sale for….50 cents…can you believe it? i am going to make this pie this weekend!

  3. Don't you just love it when mom finally shares her pie recipes? I had to be married before my mom would give me her peach pie recipe.

  4. I'm new to your lovely blog. I've never cooked with tapioca before. Are you using tapioca pudding or something else? It's a beautiful pie. Thank you for the recipe.
