StoneGable Individual Blueberry Raspberry Pies
recipe makes 4 cute pies
store bought pie dough (for this one I used store bought~ remember EASY)
2-3 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup good raspberry jam
1 1/2 tsps corn starch
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl mix jam and cornstarch together. Add blueberries and set aside. See EASY!
Remove dough from packaging, and place 1 round of dough on a work surface. Gently roll to flatten edges, but do not roll any thinner.
Using the blank side of the pie maker, press into the dough and to cut 4 pie bottoms.
Flip pie maker to the lattice side and cut out 4 pie tops from the second piece of dough.
Open the maker... isn't it adorable?
Put pie bottom in the well of the pie maker and make sure the edges match up. Fill with blueberry/raspberry filling.
Wet the edge of the pie with a little water... just use your finger. Top with the lattice dough. Line up all edges.
Flip the top over onto the pie and press.
Oh, cutie pie!!!!
Put pies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Make an egg wash by scrambling one egg and a TBS of water, and brush it over the pies. Sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Cool.
Easy, Delicious, Beautiful and I love serving them!!! Wow Factor!
