Blueberry hand pies inspired by Angry Chicken, using a regular pie crust recipe (from Amy's cheat sheet) and filled with this blueberry filling:

Blueberry Filling Recipe for Hand Pies

Mix the following ingredients in a bowl:

  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • pinch nutmeg

Roll out fist-sized balls of the pie crust. Add a couple large spoonfulls of filling to half of each dough circle. Fold the crust over the filling and pinch the edges closed with your fingers (or use a fork to press the edges together). Use a butter knife to poke a few ventilation holes in the top of the hand pie. Brush with egg wash or milk and sprinkle with a spoonfull of sugar. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for about 25 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.

    We did this exact flower crown project for P’s birthday party last year. It was in October so we had lots of pretty autumnal petals and leaves. I loved it!
