Mini Blueberry Pies
photo by MarthaStewartWanabe
- Ready In:
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Onto a flat work surface lightly dusted with flour, unfold one sheet of puffed pastry. Lightly dust the surface of the pastry with flour. With a rolling pin, lightly roll until square spreads to the size of a 12" x 12" square. Slice into eight evenly sized squares. Gently tuck squares into eight muffin cups, leaving the four corners of the squares loose at the top.
- In a medium bowl, combine blueberries, flour, sugar, vanilla and water.
- Spoon blueberry mixture into the pastry-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full. Loosely fold the corners of the exposed pastry over the berry mixture.
- With a pastry brush, brush melted butter over each pie. Then dust each with sugar.
- Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the pie tops are lightly browned and puffed-crisp.
- Cool for 1-2 hours. Wait until the pies are sufficiently cool before removing from the pan. If necessary, use a butter knife to gently work around the outside of each to remove.

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am 33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years. We have a beautiful 5-year-old daughter and a 3-year-old son. I am amazed at how quickly our kids are growing and developing. I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as preservatives, hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc. With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed. I'm doing the best I can to protect my family from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive. I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
