How do you keep blueberry pie from being runny? – Thickeners: Use an appropriate thickening agent to help the blueberry filling set. Common options include:Cornstarch: About 2 to 4 tablespoons per 4 cups of berries. Tapioca Flour: About 2 to 3 tablespoons per 4 cups of berries. All-Purpose Flour: About 3 to 4 tablespoons per 4 cups of berries. – Fresh vs. Frozen Berries: If you’re using frozen blueberries, ensure they are either thawed and drained or adjust the amount of thickener upwards, as frozen berries release more juice. – Sugar Adjustment: Be mindful of the amount of sugar you add. Too much sugar can draw out more liquid from the blueberries, making the filling runnier. Balance the sweetness and thickening correctly. – Pre-cook the Filling: Consider cooking your blueberry filling on the stove before baking. This technique allows you to see how thick the mixture is and adjust accordingly before it goes into the pie crust.

What is the best thickener for blueberry pie? We like tapioca in blueberry, cherry or peach pies. Arrowroot, unlike cornstarch, is not broken down by the acid in the fruit you are using so it is a good choice for fruit with a higher content of acidity such as strawberries or blackberries.
