I love easy dessert recipe ideas – I am a simple person and baking is NOT my forte so easy works best! I also live in an area that is lucky to have blueberries grow wild – and they are everywhere!

I spend many a summer day gathering blueberries (and I work on my sunburn & tan lines too).

One summer day I had a bucket of blueberries and my sweet tooth was asking for pie. I did not want to make a conventional blueberry pie – that’s so NOT creative! My hubby loves lemon meringue pie so I thought why not make a blueberry one. It turned out quite yummy.

Ingredients for this Easy Dessert Recipe: Blueberry Meringue Pie

The ingredient list is simple (the way I like it).

  • 3-4 cups blueberries (hand picked is not a requirement)
  • 1 pie crust (yep the frozen type works great – but if you can make your own go for it)
  • 1 cup sugar (for filling)
  • 1/4 cup sugar (for meringue)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Tips for this Easy Dessert Recipe

Few after thoughts I found about this easy dessert recipe.

  • the filling ends up quite gooey and messy. I think adding a bit of flour would thicken it up a bit.
  • Refrigerate if you can! It will help solidify everything.
