Individual Fresh Blueberry Pies

This is about the simplest pie there is, but oh so delicious!  No complicated techniques, no special equipment, just a rolling pin (if you are making your own pie crusts) and a bowl and spoon.  Just toss a few ingredients on top of your fresh blueberries, stir, and you have a delicious pie filling that will please everyone in the family!

Ingredients:

4 cups fresh  blueberries

1 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

dash salt

pie pastry for 2 crust pie (see my pie pastry recipe in another post)

Directions:

Rinse blueberries and place in a bowl.

IMG_5348_1Add sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and lemon peel.

IMG_5351_2Toss to combine.  Roll out the pie pastry to fit individual pie dishes.  This recipe makes enough filling for about 5 or 6 individual pies.  I used several small mismatched dishes.

Spoon in the blueberry mixture.

IMG_5353_1To make a top lattice crust, roll out a circle of pie pastry and cut into strips.

IMG_5360_2Weave them on the top of the pie, and tuck the ends into the sides of the pie dish.

IMG_5371_2I did some of the tops with a solid piece of pastry and some with the left-over scraps of pastry for a “rustic” look.

Bake at 400 degrees until crust is lightly browned and filling is bubbly.  A big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the warm pie is an absolute must!!
