It’s berry season and I’m having fun experimenting with new desserts. This recipe is inspired by Bon Appetit. In actually, I made their dough by hand and it wasn’t sweet enough. I recommend saving time and buy store bought pie dough or canned biscuits (a tip from my mother’s friends). Simply stuff with a blueberry mixture, crimp and bake. These are playful and fun to eat by hand at a dinner party.
Blueberry Hand Pies
- store bought pie crust or canned biscuits
- 2 cups blueberries (about 10 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg, whisked with 1 teaspoon water
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together the blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar and salt. Roll out the dough into 6ish small circles or squares. Stuff with filling. Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar. Bake for about 30 minutes or until browned. Enjoy warm or at room temperature.
