directions

  • 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.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;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.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
