Serves: 9 x 9cm pies
Ingredients
Crust
  • 210g wholemeal flour
  • Dash salt
  • 100g butter
  • 20g shortening (Trex/Crisco)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 tbsp cold water
Blueberry Filling
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 150g blueberries
  • ½ tbsp cornflour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp blueberry jam (blackberry jam would also work)
Glaze
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 50g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
Directions
Crust
  1. Cube the butter, then blitz with the rest of the ingredients in a food processor until a dough starts to form. Leave pea-sized chunks of butter as this adds texture to the pastry.
  2. Wrap in plastic and chill overnight.
After Chilling...
  1. Preheat the oven to 175C/350F, line a baking tray.
  2. Mix the filling ingredients. Fresh and frozen blueberries both work.
  3. Roll out the pastry to 2-3mm thick, cut discs using a cookie cutter.
  4. Mix the filling ingredients together.
  5. Arrange on a baking tray with a gap between each, then place 1 tbsp blueberry filling in each.
  6. Wet the edges of the bottom disc with a little cold water, then place another disc on top.
  7. Crimp the edges with a fork, cut vents in the top and brush with milk, egg white or cream.
  8. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, then bake for 20-30 mins until golden brown.
