Blueberry Pot PiePrint This
- 4 cups fresh blueberries
- 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- ¼ cup of sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, defrosted at room temperature
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons water
Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.
Make sure that you have picked over the blueberries, removing any stems and rinse them well.
In a medium bowl combine the blueberries, flour, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir well. The flour needs to coat all of the berries. Let it sit a few minutes and stir it again. It will start to become juicy.
Divide the blueberry mixture between four ramekins. There is no need to grease them.
Lay the puff pastry flat, pressing out any folds with your finger. Use a ramekin turned upside down to cut your pie crust circle. Press hard to cut all the way through the pastry. If for some reason it does not cut all the way through, use a sharp knife to finish the job.
Place a puff pastry circle on each of the ramekins. You can use the pastry scraps to cut little decorative shapes with cookie cutters for the top of the pie crusts if you want.
Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl to create an egg wash. Gently brush the mixture lightly over the top of each pie. You want the entire crust coated but not excessively. The egg wash will give the crust nice color and a bit of sheen.
Place the ramekins on a baking sheet that you have lined with parchment paper in case the blueberry filling bubbles over a bit.
Place the baking sheet onto a rack in the center of the oven.
Bake the pies for 20 minutes until the top of the crusts are golden brown.
Serve warm and enjoy!
