There's a pick-your-own organic blueberries place that is down the road from my workplace.  
Every summer, I load up on berries to eat and to bake with (and yes, I freeze tons of them as well!).  So far, I've tried muffins, pancakes, cakes and scones.  While looking for an easy recipe for blueberry pie, I found several that used a graham cracker crust base.  Intriguing.  After combining the best bits from each recipe, here's what I ended with Cheesy  I couldn't find the right sized pie pan so I used a sheet pan that measures approximately 9" by 13" by 1.5".

Wanna make one?  Here's the recipe Cheesy

2 1/4 cups finely crushed graham crackers
1/3 cup white sugar
9 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine above ingredients in a bowl.  Press mixture into sheet pan.  Bake in 375 degree F for approximately 8 minutes.  Remove from oven, set aside to cool.

Blueberry filling:
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup water
4 cups frozen blueberries (fresh may be used, but i had frozen ones that i wanted to use Tongue)
2 cups fresh blueberries

Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a large saucepan.  Add water and mix still smooth.  Stir in 4 cups of frozen blueberries.  Bring berry mixture to a boil and cook until thickened.  Stir in 2 cups of fresh blueberries.  Remove from heat, cool to room temperature and pour on top of prebaked graham cracker crust.

Yep, that's it.  Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream to up its yumminess factor.  Leftovers (if any) should probably be stored in the fridge Smiley  Enjoy!

This recipe is genius! So easy and I like that it can be used with any kind of berry. Smiley
