Blueberry Hand Pies
for the crust:
- 1¼ cups all purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup shortening
- 4 to 5 Tablespoons cold water
for the filling:
- 1 package refrigerated pie crust
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
- Juice and zest from 1⁄2 lemon
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 cups blueberries
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- Granulated sugar
1) Pre-heat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl stir together flour and salt. With a pastry blender cut in shortening until pea sized.
2) Sprinkle water in one tablespoon at a time tossing with fork. Mix till all flour is moistened.
3) Form into a ball and roll out on floured surface. Turn and flour dough a few times then roll out until you reach desired thickness. Use a circle cookie cutter to cut out 24 circles.
4) Put the butter, lemon juice and zest, sugar and blueberries into a pan and saute over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add flour, stir until dissolved and cook for an additional minute. Remove from heat and set aside.
5) Place 12 pie crust circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Spoon 1 tablespoon of blueberry pie filling into the center of each cookie. Place the other 12 pie crust circles on top of the blueberry-topped bottoms and seal the edges with a fork. You can use a cookie stamp to add a cute saying to the tops or simply cut a few small slits in the top of each blueberry hand pie, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
6) Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly. Cool, serve and enjoy!
