Blueberry Pie for Kids

Updated: Jan 22, 2019


 

It's the weekend and let's make a blueberry pie with the kids. It is fun for the little hands to work on their motor skills too. Just be extra careful when using the oven. Enjoy!


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups of blueberries

  • 2 tablespoons of honey

  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

  • 1 sheet of butter puff pastry

  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs

  • butter and flour, for preparing pie plates


INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 425F.

  2. Gently stir the honey, lemon juice, and blueberries until blueberries are fully coated.

  3. Roll out the puff pastry and fit into oiled and floured pie plate.

  4. Coat the puff pastry in the breadcrumbs - use the butter to help stick the crumbs to the pastry if they are not sticking on their own.

  5. Using a fork, make small pin pricks along the pastry to aerate (as we are not doing a blind bake first).

  6. Fill the pie pastry with the pie filling, top as desired (with a lattice, a second square of puff pastry, or with a cute design).

  7. Cover the pie with tinfoil and bake 15 minutes before removing and reducing heat to 375F and baking until crust is golden brown - another 15-20 minutes.

  8. Cool before serving to allow the pie filling to set up.
