Blueberry Pie Filling Recipe

Let me show you how you can make your very own homemade Blueberry Pie Filling using fresh or frozen berries.


  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Place blueberries and ¼ cup water in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until you notice some of the blueberries breaking down, about 3-5 minutes depending on how hot your stove is.
  2. While they are cooking, mix the cornstarch, 1 tablespoon water and lemon juice in a small bowl and stir until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Add the sugar and stir. Then stir the cornstarch slurry to make sure there are no lumps and stir it into the blueberries. Stir constantly until mixture thickens, just 1-2 minutes or so. Once the mixture bubbles it’s done. Remove from the heat and transfer to a jar or bowl to cool.
  4. Cover warm mixture so it doesn’t form a skin and let come to room temperature, then chill if not using.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
  6. Use as directed in desired recipes, as a no-bake filling for pie or lush, or use it in a baked pie or danish. Follow the directions on the recipe you're using for baking instructions.
