Blueberry Mini Pies

Ok, so I am on a blueberry trend lately, but I just had to share this recipe with you. It was a joined effort from the help of a cookbook and my own creativity (and baking sense), no that should not scare you! 🙂  The recipe for making your own mini blueberry pies is as follows:

Pie Crust

1/3 c.   tapioca

1/3 c.   flaxseed meal

1/3 c.   coconut flour

plus an additional 2 1/2 T. of coconut flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 c.  organic butter, cold and cut into tablespoon size pieces

1  egg, slightly beaten

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Place all dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse until mixed. Add the cold butter pieces and pulse until the dough resembles course meal. Add the egg and pulse until mixture forms a ball. On a piece of wax paper, dust with tapioca flour. Add the dough and roll in flour dust. Place another piece of wax paper on top of the ball and flatten. Using a rolling pin flatten the dough out to a 1/4 inch. Freeze dough for 5-8 minutes. Divide the dough into three parts, press into mini ramekins or individual pie pans. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Bake the crusts for 15 -18 minutes or until golden brown.

Blueberry filling:

2 c. of homemade blueberry preserves

2 T.     xyla

2 1/2 T.  tapioca flour

Instructions:

Heat blueberries over the stove in a saucepan. Add sugar (xyla) and tapioca flour. Stir until blueberries are well heated. Remove from heat and pour into baked crusts. Place back into the oven and bake for an additional 16-17 minutes.  Enjoy!

    • Xyla can be substituted cup for cup with regular white sugar. I am not sure what sugars would be equivalent to the coconut sugar or syrup but you could try honey, just add smaller amounts as it is sweeter than the other sugars.
