  • 9 inch pie plate



  • 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs about 10-11 crackerrs
  • cup sugar
  • 6 Tbs melted butter


  • 5 ½ cups fresh blueberries divided
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 Tbs butter


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 Tbs lemon juice


To make the crust

  • Using a food processor, break up the crackers, and pulse until you have crumbs. Alternatively, place the crackers in a Ziplock bag, release as much air as possible, and use a rollign pin to gently pound and roll into crumbs.
  • In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter, and mix well.
  • Press into pie plate.
  • Bake at 350 for 7 minutes.
  • Cool completely.

To make the filling

  • Mix cornstarch with a couple of tablespoons (or more) of water and mix well. It should be a white liquid with no lumps. Set aside.
  • Place 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 cup of blueberries in a medium saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute.
  • Remove from heat and add cornstarch slurry.
  • Return to heat, bring a boil until mixture is thick and shiny.
  • Remove from heat and add 1 Tbs butter.
  • Cool completely.
  • When the mixture is cooled, gently fold in 3 cups of fresh berries.
  • Pour the blueberry mixture into the pie crust.
  • Top with remaining 1 1 /2 cups fresh blueberries.
  • Chill until set (about 3 hours)

To make the topping

  • Combine heavy cream, sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice in a stand mixer.
  • Beat until soft peaks form.
  • Serve pie chilled topped with lemon whipped cream.


  • Cool means really cool! Make sure there is not a bit of warmth left in your filling, this helps it set up best. 
  • You can use a hand mixer to beat your whipped cream if you don't have a stand mixer.
  • Chilling your bowl and beaters/wire whisk helps make whipped cream faster and keeps it from warming up. 
  • A store-bought graham cracker crust will work if you don't want to make your own, but I still prefer the homemade version.
