Here are some notes on the ingredients we'll be using. For the full ingredients list, look at the recipe card below.
- Pie dough: Either homemade pie crust or store bought.
- Blueberries: I used fresh, but you could also use frozen blueberries.
- Corn starch: This helps to thicken the filling.
- Lemon juice: Adds a touch of sour to the sweet berries.
- Egg: You need one egg and a splash of water for the egg wash.
Here are the step by step instructions on how to make mini blueberry hand pies.
Step 1: Make the filling. In a medium or small saucepan, add the blueberries, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice, and water. Cook over medium heat until thickened.
Once thickened, transfer the hot filling to a heat safe bowl and cool completely.
Step 2: Roll the pie dough. On a lightly floured work surface using a rolling pin, roll out the pie dough. Use a 4-inch circle cutter and cut out 10 circles. Repeat with the other pie dough.
Step 3: Use a sharp knife or a small cookie cutter to cut two openings onto the top of 10 circle pie crusts (these will be the top crusts).
Step 4: Assemble the pies. On a prepared baking sheet, place one circle on and lightly brush it with the egg wash (use a pastry brush for this). Then place 1 tablespoon of the filling in the center and top with one of the top crusts.
Step 5: Crimp and chill the pies. Use a fork to crimp down the edges of the pie until fully sealed. Repeat until all 10 of your fruit hand pies have been formed. Then place the baking pan in the freezer to chill.
Step 6: Turn on the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Once preheated, remove the pan from the freezer and lightly brush the tops with the egg wash. Add the coarse sugar to the top of each pie.
Step 7: Bake. Place the whole pan into the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Keep any leftover pies in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Bonus Tip! Eat these pies in a bowl with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
Expert Baking Tips
- Pie Dough: If you want to make your own, follow this recipe. If using store bought, follow the directions on the box for knowing how far in advance it should be sitting at room temperature before rolling it out.
- Pie Filling: To cool the filling quickly, place it in the freezer and stir it every 10 minutes.
- Cookie Cutter: Use a 4-inch round cookie cutter to cut out a total of 20 circles.
I recommend using corn starch for the best results when it comes to the filling. If flour is all you have on hand, then it should be okay since you only need a little.
Because you didn't cook it long enough. Be sure to cook until thick and then remove it from the heat.
Yes you can!
It brings me so much joy to see you make my recipes. 🙂
