Can fresh berry pie filling made w/cornstarch be frozen?

I taught a pie class the other day, and I am up to my neck in pie. I find myself with a batch of fresh blueberry filling (the kind that goes into a fully-baked pie shell, not the kind that still needs to be baked), which was thickened with cornstarch. I actually made it 3 days ago. I'm wondering if this can be successfully frozen, then thawed later to make a pie when all the other pies around here are gone. Thanks.

Hi Terri! Cornstarch loses its oomph over time in the freezer, so the filling might be OK if you used it within a week or two, but I wouldn't keep it in there for much longer.
