Did you know that March 14 is Pi Day? Probably, if you're reading my blog. If not, I'm not making it up. I put it on the calendar and everything.
The only question is: what kind of pie to make?
Years ago, when I first started collecting recipes off the internet, I printed instructions to make hand pies. The recipe was specifically for blackberries, but I had blueberries. Same difference, if you ask me.
Since there's no link to be found, here's what I did:
Blueberry Hand Pies
For the filling:
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1 tbs cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sugar
For the crust:
- 1 & 1/4 cup flour
- 6 tbs butter
- 3 tbs water
- a little salt
Roll the dough out pretty thin - it will get a little thicker once baked. I used a mini tart pan (about 4-5" wide) to cut out pretty ruffly circles. Put each cutout on a baking sheet with parchment paper and drop a spoonful of filling onto one side of the circle. Fold the dough over in half, and seal them with either a little water, extra dough, or a fork.
Bake for 20 minutes at 375 degrees.
My circles were on the bigger side, so I only got five out of this recipe. But oh, they were good. The perfect size for just a little pie, and not overwhelming with blueberries.
Oh, and I entered the nutritional information into a calculator for you, if you're interested. You're welcome.
