Scale

Ingredients

For the dough

For the filling

  • 225 g (1 1/2 cups) fresh blueberries
  • 110 g (1/2 cup) granulated sugar
  • 18 g (2 tablespoons) cornstarch
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 28 g (2 tablespoons) fresh lemon juice
  • 1 g (1/2 teaspoon) ground cinnamon
  • 1.4 (1/4 teaspoon ) salt
  • 50 g (1 large) egg, beaten
  • 14 g (1 tablespoon) milk
  • Coarse sugar, for sprinkling

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F/218°C.  Line two baking sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone mats.  Roll out one dough disc on a floured surface to a 12×8-inch rectangle. Cut into 8 rectangles and place them evenly spaced onto one of the prepared baking sheet pans.  Place the pan into the refrigerator.
  2. Repeat with the other dough disc for top crusts and place on the second sheet pan.  Put the pan into the refrigerator.
  3. In a small bowl, combine blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt.  Set aside.
  4. Beat together egg and milk. Brush bottom pastry crusts with egg wash.  Divide blueberry filling mixture evenly between the 8 crusts by piling high in middles and allowing for a 1/2-inch border on all sides.  Place the remaining 6 rectangles on top of blueberry filling.  Gently stretch the dough to allow edges to meet and lightly press edges together to create a seal.  Using a fork, crimp edges of each hand pie.
  5. With remaining egg wash, brush each hand pie and sprinkle with coarse sugar.  Cut slits in each pie to allow for steam to escape.
  6. Bake hand pies for 16-18 minutes or until crusts are golden brown and blueberry filling is bubbly.
  7. Transfer to a wire rack to completely cool.  Enjoy.
