Favorite fruit pie thickener

Jpan99 | Mar 29, 2012 08:05 AM

What is your favorite thickener when making fruit pies and why? Flour, cornstarch, tapioca, something else?

I'm trying to perfect blueberry/raspberry pie filing. Want it firm enough so the filling doesn't just fall apart when you cut a slice, but don't want it thick and gummy either.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
