    I like this recipe a lot and so does the family but the blueberry filling really has no taste once the shortcake is cooled off. I would recommend that you add about 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar to the filling before putting it into the well.  -  30 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good, the texture I found was kind of pound-cakey, but a delicious pound cake anyways! I topped it with jam instead of pie filling and it was even better, in my opinion. I will definetly make again ! EDIT- ok the next day they were GROSS not even a 2 star. Maybe I won't make them afterall...  -  12 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this using homemade blueberry pie filling instead of the canned kind. Turned out amazingly well and it was SO delicious with a nice scoop of double vanilla ice cream on top while still warm.. keeper!  -  16 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
