julie's famous blueberry pie

My friend Julie, whom I ran into while picking blueberries on Friday, sent me this recipe today.  I was already planning on making chocolate mousse for Father's Day but suddenly felt that two desserts would be way better than one!  I even had all the ingredients on hand which was exciting.  I assisted my youngest daughter while she made this delicious, fresh blueberry pie.  It was a huge hit.
Thank you, Oregon for the best blueberries in the world.

In saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch over medium heat.  Add water.  Add 1 cup blueberries.  Cook and stir constantly until mixture thickens and bubbles, about 10 minutes.  Take off heat.  Fold in lemon juice and 3 cups blueberries.  Put into chilled pie crust; chill at least another hour.  Serve with whipped cream.
