I love fat pies!! This is easy and has a wonderful flavor. Cuts perfect after cooling, using the tapioca instead of flour

  • 6I wet top crust with a little milk and sprinkle sugar over it just before baking.
    You can use frozen blueberries without a problem'
    If you think your blueberries are extra tart an additional 1/2 of sugar can be used. But it is plenty sweet with just 2 cups
