Blueberry Hand Pies


Hand pies. Pop tarts. It doesn’t matter what you choose to call them, you’ll simply love them.


These fresh blueberries are plump and juicy. Lemon zest and juice give the right amount of tartness and fragrant cinnamon lends warmth.


They’re not the most beautiful things to grace my table but they sure do make up for it in flavor.



The icing is lemon juice and just the right amount of confectioners’ sugar.


Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/3 cup cold water

Blueberry Filling

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • zest of a small lemon
  • juice of half a small lemon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Lemon Icing

  • juice of half a small lemon
  • confectioners’ sugar
  1. Prepare crust. Whisk flour, salt and sugar. Blend in butter until it resembles peas. Add cold water a little at a time until a dough forms. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill a half hour.
  2. Combine filling ingredients.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  4. Roll out dough and cut into equal pieces. Place a tablespoon or more if you can fit of the filling onto each piece of dough. Fold in half and crimp edges with a fork. Poke holes for steam to escape.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack. Drizzle icing over top and enjoy!
