whipped up blueberry pie

This morning while trying to get a few more minutes of sleep, with the sound of Geoff griping at me for never making breakfast, I realized that there was a mega Costco sized container of fresh organic blueberries in the fridge that were unfortunately never going to be consumed before they get all shriveled up and neglected like they so often do.  I always forget just how easy it is to make a fruit pie.  Cornstarch, sugar, lemon juice, fruit of choice, and of course the ever present frozen pie crust. so simple.  and of course, don't forget the whipped cream and that cuppa joe.

3/4 cup white sugar
  1/4 cup cornstarch
1 pinch salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
  5 cups fresh blueberries
1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked

In a saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt.  Stir in lemon juice and 1 cup of blueberries.  Cook and stir over medium heat, until thick and bubbly, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Let cool for a little bit and stir in remaining blueberries.  Pour into baked pie shell and cool in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours (I never wait this long).
