This is a perfect blueberry pie using frozen blueberries! It’s not runny or watery and holds up very well. The flavor is jammy and lightly sweet with a wonderful blueberry vanilla flavor.

I decided to make these for my Harry Potter party as a “blue” Ravenclaw Pie and they came out great. I used frozen blueberries and store bought pie dough to keep it extra simple.
The ingredients are simple; combine frozen blueberries, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice and zest, vanilla, and a pinch of salt.
I always keep these frozen blueberries on hand for blueberry cookies, muffins, and oatmeal! They’re wild blueberries so their size is slightly smaller than regular blueberries and they have more antioxidants.
The cornstarch thickens the pie filling as it bakes in the oven and helps keep it from being runny. This is what gives it a jammy consistency.
To assemble the pie, I cut out prepared pie dough in slightly larger circles than these mini pie tins and placed them inside. Then, using extra pie dough I cut out circles just big enough to fit the top and used a heart shaped fruit cutter to cut out hearts at the center. Then for some pies I used the cutout hearts as the pie top.
Bake your mini pies at 400° for 10 minutes then (with the pies still in the oven) lower the heat to 325° and bake for an additional 10 minutes. The blast of high heat helps cook the pie shell and keep it from getting soggy while lowering the heat helps cook it through without burning.
If you would like to make these pies ahead of time, prepare the pie until the last step and then, before baking, place them on a tray and freeze. Once frozen, store in a ziplock bag until ready for use.
