BLUEBERRY PIE COOKIES

July 21, 2019
Stuffed full of my mom's homemade fresh blueberry pie filling, Blueberry Pie Cookies are similar to ingesting an cute mini little blueberry pie. 

I can don't forget our own family selecting wild blueberries in the late summer time each yr, and looking forward to mom making a pie or  with our haul. With those teensy-tiny berries, it might positive take plenty of selecting to refill our buckets.  And it might sure take a number of picking for mom to have sufficient to whip up a proper pie.  however the reward turned into worth the paintings!

BLUEBERRY PIE COOKIES

I commenced by using whipping up a batch of my mother's homemade blueberry pie filling, that is sincerely simple to do.  It takes all of approximately 5 mins or much less at the stove top.

All you do is combine fresh blueberries, sugar, a chunk of water, and a bit cornstarch in a saucepan.  I additionally add a pinch of salt, a pinch of cinnamon, and a small contact of lemon juice to decorate the flavor.  carry all this to boil, and simmer it for about a minute until it's thick.

BLUEBERRY PIE COOKIES

Ingredients
For the Filling:

  • 1 T. butter
  • 1 pint (about 1 1/2 c.) fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 c. water
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 T. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • pinch ground cinnamon
  • pinch salt

For Assembly:

  • Pie crust for a two-crust pie, store-bought or use your favorite homemade recipe
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 tsp. water
  • sanding sugar or granulated sugar for sprinkling on top (optional)

Instructions

  1. FOR THE FILLING: Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add blueberries, water, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine.
  2. Bring to a gently boil over medium to medium-high heat.  Lower heat and simmer  for about 1 minute until thickened (mixture will be quite thick).  Set aside to cool slightly.
  3. FOR ASSEMBLY: Roll out the pie crust on a lightly floured surface until about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick. Use a 2 1/2 to 3-inch round cookie cutter or biscuit cutter to cut out as many rounds as possible from the dough (you'll need two rounds for each cookie).
  4. Transfer half of the rounds to a baking sheet and brush the edges with a tiny bit of water (this helps seal the rounds).
  5. Place about 1 and 1/2 measuring teaspoons of blueberry filling in the center of each round (do not over-fill). Top each with one of the remaining rounds. Press the edges to seal each pie cookie, and then use a fork to crimp the edges.
  6. Prepare an egg wash by lightly beating together the egg and 1/4 teaspoon of water. 
  7. Brush each pie cookie with egg wash, being sure to get some egg wash over the entire surface of the cookie. (Since these mini pies won't be in the oven for as long as a full-size pie, they don't develop a nicely browned crust without the egg wash. The egg wash gives them a nice golden brown color.)
  8. Sprinkle the tops with a pinch of sanding sugar or granulated sugar, if using. Use a small knife to cut slits in the top of each pie cookie.
  9. TO BAKE:  Bake at 350℉ for about 15 to 20 minutes, until crust is golden brown. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

ARKANSAS POSSUM PIE RECIPE

Arkansas Possum Pie is a creamy, layered chocolate and cream cheese pie in a pecan shortbread crust that is sure to please!

I just needed to encompass this hilariously named Arkansas favourite as a part of my American Eats series.  not only is it fairly famous and found all over the country of Arkansas, however my interest changed into right now piqued by using the name possum pie.  As quickly as I saw this on a list of famous Arkansas recipes i used to be simultaneously repulsed and intrigued.

ARKANSAS POSSUM PIE RECIPE

One theory at the back of the unusual and surprising name is that possum pie is so-named for pretending to be some thing that it’s not – in this example hiding the chocolate filling underneath a layer of whipped cream.  every other principle is that it’s simply known as possum pie because of it’s similar coloring to the handiest marsupial in North the us.

It’s a delicious dessert for all of us who loves chocolate cream pies!  And sincerely, I suppose my favourite part is probably the pecan shortbread crust that tastes more like a pecan sandies cookie than a pie crust.

These days’s recipe is as soft as my favored tender-baked cookie, as chewy as my favorite blondie, and as sprinkly as my complete cookbook. You’ll find sprinkles within the cookie bar base and on top of the frosting. Is there one of these element as too many sprinkles? 

To make the cookie bars extremely chewy, I add an additional egg yolk. I try this with some of my cookie recipes due to the fact that little greater yolk provides a lot moisture, tenderness, and bite to the cookie. And it does the equal thing to the sugar cookie bar base in this recipe. You’re going to like their wealthy, smooth texture.
