Blueberry Hand Pies

Hand pie- (n.) A type of pie meant specifically for lazy people who like to eat with their hands; Fancy looking treats that are exceptionally easy to make. (See also: Delicious, Convenient, Economical)

We had too many blueberries that were going bad and a random pie crust, but I didn’t want to make pie… ever since I watched American Pie I just cannot look at it the same way….

Unfortunate.

But now we have hand pies. They’re like miniature pies. Or like giant ant pies.

This is what you need:

  • Blueberries
  • Pre- made pie crust (2 within one package) because this recipe is for lazy people
  • Lemon (zest+ juice)
  • ~4 tbs butter (melted)
  • Sugar

And how you make them:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  • Roll out your crusts on a clean surface and grab a cereal bowl and a knife.
  • Place the bowl on the rolled out dough and cut around it to make a small round of flattened dough. Repeat so you have a bunch of cute little pancakes.

  • Wash your blueberries and put them in a bowl and mix them with lemon juice and a bit of lemon zest.
  • Melt your butter in the microwave and brush it on one side of the pancake. Sprinkle some sugar on this same side.
  • Flip your pancakes and place a few blueberries in the center then fold up into a little pouch, tightly pinching the sides together. Stuff more blueberries in if you can.
  • Pop them in the oven for about 10 minutes or until crust is golden and cooked through.
They should come out looking like this, though possibly less messy if you're more coordinated than me.
