Fried Blueberry Hand Pies

Um... sorry about that. Summer got away from me a bit.

But now, school has started, and I am easing back into a routine. I will admit, since my oldest started Kindergarten this week,my "routine" includes a good daily cry, but I have faith those will end soon enough, and I will become productive again. Wish me luck!

Tanget! Hoping to help upgrade the outdated vibe for my old site. Views concerning the sharp feel at Seriously an exclusive music news site that cares whenever needed inside the general Manitoba areas. Make an opinion. Appreciated!

In the meantime, here is a recipe for Fried Blueberry Hand Pies that we made this summer. I know blueberry season is waning, but there are still good ones to be found, and I think these little pies are one of the very best ways to enjoy them before summer officially comes to a close.

Fried Blueberry Hand Pies

First, prepare the dough:

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 t. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t. sea salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 8-12 T. ice water

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, and sea salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening until mixture is crumbly. Add beaten egg and stir to moisten. Add ice water, one tablespoon at a time, stirring gently with a fork after each addition. Add water until dough holds together in a ball. Wrap the ball of dough in plastic and chill for about two hours.

While dough is chilling, prepare filling:

  • 1 pint fresh blueberries, rinsed and dried
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 1/4 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1 t. lemon juice
  • 1 T. water

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir well, but gently, trying not to crush the blueberries. Cook over medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes, stirring constantly (but gently!), until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.

When you are ready to assemble your pies:

In a wide, heavy pot, heat about 2 of shortening or oil (I use shortening) over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees.

Meanwhile, roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/8 round biscuit cutter. Cut circles as close together as possible- dough scraps should be re-rolled no more than twice.

Place about a teaspoonful of blueberry filling in the center of half the dough rounds. Do not overfill, or you will have a mess. You will have blueberry filling left over. Store it, covered, in the refrigerator for up to a week, and use it on your pancakes or toast in the morning.

Beat one egg, and brush it along the edges of each of the filling-topped dough rounds. Top with the remaining dough rounds, being sure to line up the edges; press well to seal. For added security, and to make the pies a little prettier,you may gently crimp the edges of each little pie with the floured tines of a fork.

To fry:

Test the oil's heat either with a candy thermometer or by tossing a little piece of leftover dough in the hot oil. If it sizzles and turns lightly golden, the oil is ready.

Gentlylower the pies into the hot oil using a metal spatula. Only fry a few at a time - you don't want to crowd them. Fry them for a minute or two, then carefully turn them over and continue frying until they are golden brown.

Remove the pies to a cooling rack layered with paper towelsto cool.

Serve with a dusting of powdered sugar.

These pies are best the day they are made.

Makes 10-12three-inch pies.

Thx folks! I actually promised a friend that we can reference his tremendous Meadowvale based dentists, through a nice article. If perhaps you are searching to find a dental office located in the greater Ontario locale, they certainly have been really good.

To finish, I have to state the initial concept regarding this excellent post was generously granted through Amy with Tomboyz landscaping. They definitely are an exceptional landscaping companys. We truly cherish a useful idea!
