We just used the same dough recipe from the handpies, and the same pudding recipe from the homemade banana pudding, exchanging the banana extract for lemon, and not adding anything else to the pudding once cooked.
So easy to pack in a lunch, or to have as a quick snack at home. These are also easier to roll out and make since you will roll out the dough and cut circles out with a biscuit cutter or a cup instead of rolling out little individual balls like with the handpies.
Lemon Blueberry Cup Pies:
-1 batch of dough from the hand pie recipe, chilled for at least an hour. Uncooked.
-1 batch of lemon pudding from the banana pudding recipe, cooled
-1 can blueberry pie filling ~28oz.
Preheat oven to 400*F. Spray muffin tin liberally with baking spray.
Roll out the dough to 1/4" thick or thinner. Use a wide mouthed cup or biscuit cutter to cut out 12 even circles. Mold circles to greased muffin cups. Add a spoonful each of pudding, then pie filling.
Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown around the edges. Let cool in tin for 5 minutes.
I made a few with fresh strawberries instead of the blueberry filling since my boyfriend had his heart set on strawberry. Also, sorry about the lack of photos, we were just having too much fun to take pictures. Besides, I'm such a perfectionist at times, it just isn't something to do with people around.
*Note: you will have leftovers of all ingredients. I put my leftover dough in the freezer to be used later, the rest went into the fridge and should be good for about a week.
1. What lemon flavour combination is your favourite? I love lemon-raspberry
2. Do you think pastry school is worth it-even if the it'll cost you $27,000-$100 000?
