My BFFL messaged me on facebook one day and asked me to make her these. Me, being the good friend that I am invited her over and actually did :).
Thanks Yahoo for the recipe!
- All-purpose flour (for dusting)
- 2 cups blueberries (about 10 ounces)
- 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large egg, whisked with 1 teaspoon water
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar ( I used granulated)
For the crust I cheated and bought premade crust from the grocery store, used the two pack by slicing into rows and folding over, worked out just as well :)
Preheat oven to 375°.Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 15×12-inch rectangle. Cut into 6 rectangles.
Toss blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Brush edges of rectangles with water; mound some blueberries in center of each. Fold dough over, and press edges to seal. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with egg wash, and sprinkle with raw sugar. Cut slits in tops.
Bake hand pies, rotating sheet halfway through, until juices are bubbling and pastry is golden brown, 35–40 minutes (juices will run onto parchment). Transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Can’t tell you how delicious these were!!!! The blueberry mixture was so heavenly. It made a wonderful juice. Topped of with vanilla ice cream it was the perfect summer treat !
