2 cups flour
2 T sugar
1/2 c COLD butter
4-6 T ice water
1/2 tsp salt
Mix flour, sugar and salt very well, cut in butter with pastry blender, butter knives, or food processor until it resembles crumbs. SLOWLY add in ice water until the dough comes together. You may not need the full 6 TB just watch it carefully.
Remove from bowl. Divide into 2 pieces, cover and put in the fridge while making filling:
3.5 -4 c blueberries, fresh or frozen(thawed)
3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- Combine 1 cup berries with 1/2 cup sugar in pan.
Simmer on low heat until sugar is melted and mixture is very liquid; about 5 minutes.
Combine cornstarch and water in bowl.
Add to pan with blueberries.
Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to full boil and is clear and thick.
Pour hot mixture into large bowl.Cool until warm.
- Fold in remaining 3 cups of blueberries, lemon rind, cinnamon, and nutmeg
Remove on section of dough Roll out the other into a rectangle approx 18 x 6. I use a pizza cutter and cut it into 10 equal sections(2 rows of 6), transfer one pieces to baking sheet and place about 2-3 tablespoons blueberry filling.
Top with a closely matching shaped piece of dough and press sides to seal. Prick a few times with a fork....
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Transfer to a wire rack Cool completely and frost as desired. We like them plain!
