How to Make BLUEBERRY REFRIGERATOR PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt 6 Tbsp. butter; mix with wafer crumbs. Press onto bottom and up side of a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 10 minutes or until golden.
  2. In a saucepan, bring 1-1/2 cups blueberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 Tbsp. cold water to a boil, stirring constantly. Dissolve cornstarch in 3 Tbsp. of the remaining cold water; whisk into the blueberry mixture. Simmer over low heat for 2 minutes or until thickened, sitrring constantly.
  3. Remove from heat; add reserved butter; stir until melted. Reserve 1/2 tsp. lemon zest and 1 tsp. juice. Stir remaining juice and zest into the blueberry mixture. Pour into crust.
  4. In a medium bowl, add boiling water to Jello mix; stir for 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to remaining cold water to measure 1 cup. Add to the Jello and stir until slightly thickned. Remove any unmelted ice.
  5. Whisk 1 cup Cool Whip into Jello. Refrigerate 15 minutes or until Jello mixture is thick enough to mound. Stir in 1-1/2 cups of the remaining blueberries; spoon over blueberry layer in crust.
  6. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Top pie with remaining juice and remaining sugar; spoon over pie.
