Blueberry Pie for the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

The following recipe was submitted by Julie Machado, from Marta, Julie e Maria, for the feast of the Most Holy Name of Mary. Thank you, Julie! 

I found the recipe for this blueberry pie on the Like Mother Like Daughter blog. The recipe is originally from Taste of Home and is super easy to make. I used filo dough for the crust and cut out Mary's name to put on top. Even though the recipe doesn't call for baking, I baked it about ten minutes (and had prebaked it before) until the letters were slightly golden. This recipe for blueberry pie really is delicious!

Blueberry Pie for the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 5 cups fresh blueberries, divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), baked
  • extra filo dough for "MARY" 


In a saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and water until smooth. Add 3 cups blueberries. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly.

Remove from the heat. Add butter, lemon juice and remaining berries; stir until butter is melted. Cool. Pour into pastry shell.

Add the name of Mary to the top of the pie and bake for about ten minutes, or until the letters are slightly golden. Let cool. Refrigerate until serving.
