Blueberry Jar Pies (Tuesdays with Dorie)

Blueberry Pie (Tuesdays with Dorie)

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Amy of South in Your Mouth selected….Double Crusted Blueberry Pie on pages 361-363 of Dorie's good book.

A friend forwarded Not Martha's pies in tiny canning jar entry with a note that said, "So cute. You should make these." Well, I tried and hers turned out much better!

The 4th of July cross-section!

The dough is made of lots of butter and shortening. Unseasoned breadcrumbs are placed in the bottom of pie shell. I chose to use Japanese Panko breadcrumbs (all I had in the house) and they worked out fine. I think my blueberries had way too much flour and sugar on them...but I ran out of blueberries after adding the dry ingredients (miscalculated that it was 2 1/2 PINTs (which is 5 cups) and not 2 1/2 cups of blueberries for the full batch! oops). I baked off four of them (so the crust was a little higher than should be) and froze one of the little 4 ounce jars to bake off later.

I definitely want to try the pie crust again...I don't know if my technique was correct. I don't know what next week's selection will be, but I'm looking forward to another fun recipe!
Pin It!

these are so cute! i've been addicted to blueberries this summer but I'm feeding my addiction with an easy crisp. Maybe I'll try your little pies. They're a better idea for 2 people (or we'd eat the entire pie!).

I'm loving your mini pies - what a great idea!

I have been making the Good for Almost Anything Piecrust - my family thinks it is the best tasting crust ever.
