Blueberry Mini Pies

These blueberry mini pies are the perfect little dessert for a holiday buffet.


Blueberry Mini Pies



Aren't they cute?

These blueberry mini pies are a little rustic looking, because the blueberry filling bubbles up while baking, but that just adds to their charm, right?

You bake these little pies in a mini muffin tin, just like these mini quiches.

Just cut your favorite pie crust with a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter, and fit each round into the wells of the muffin tin, and then fill them with your blueberry filling. I topped these with little heart cutouts from the crust scraps, but you can leave them plain and top them with a bit of whipped cream.

If you want a "neater" looking pie, you can bake the crusts, the cut outs, and filling separately, and then fill the crusts with the blueberry filling and top with the hearts.


Blueberry Mini Pies with heart cut outs



I used store bought refrigerated crust, but you can use your favorite pie crust recipe if you prefer.

The filling comes together very quickly. Just cook half of the blueberries with sugar, water, cornstarch, lemon juice and a bit of cinnamon. Once it thickens, which takes about a minute, stir in the rest of the blueberries and remove the mixture from the heat.

I used a demi tasse spoon to add the mixture to the pie "crusts" before baking. I did have a little of the filling leftover, which we used for topping pancakes for breakfast.

If you have leftovers, you can store them at room temperature for a couple of days as long as the weather is cool. You can also store them in the refrigerator. Just bring them to room temperature before serving.

These little blueberry pies were so easy to make and they were a big hit with my taste testers. By the way, if you like pies, be sure to scroll down and check out the rest of the Baking Bloggers recipes.
