Blueberry Pie Dr weil
8 servings Blueberries have been touted as the food with the most antioxidant potential. Their power comes from their anthocyanins, which give them their color, and loads of vitamin C. This delightful pie is loaded with these dark-blue gems. The cooked and cooled filling is poured into a 9-inch baked pie crust.
Ingredients: 1 1/2 pounds fresh or frozen blueberries 1/2 cup light brown sugar Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon 1 tsp cinnamon 2 tbsp cornstarch or arrowroot powder 2 tbsp cold water 1 baked Easy Pie Crust (see

4. Spoon mixture into pie crust and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
