  1. I think it was soooooo good. Only problem was i farted and it wrecked the pie!:(
  2. My family loves Huckleberry Pie! I struggled with the runny pie dilemma for years until I decided to prepare the filling in a saucepan first. Each year's batch of berries come on the bush with a varying degree of sweetness and juiciness. In order to make sure my pies set and taste just right I - Read more ...
  3. This was a very good recipe but I found it to be very runny. When I used 5 level TBS. of cornstarch it came out perfect! With this change I give this recipe a 5 star rating!

  8. The pie was real juicy/runny. But it was still fantastic. I will probably alter it next time but will definitely make it again. Thanks.
  9. thanks for sharing this recipe -it was delicious! We were in the Mtns visiting Mt St Helens and oh my did we see huckleberries everywhere in the blast zone!! we picked 6 cups! I had enough for your pie! I came here looking for a recipe and found yours! It was wonderful! The only thing - Read more ...
