Blueberry Pies

United States
January 12, 2022 5:49pm CST
I decided on blueberry and went with mini-pies. They are equal to one slice of a 9" pie. I prefer pie to cake or cookies. Unless it's cheesecake. Do you like to make your own treats at home or do you buy them from a bakery or market? When you make goodies at home, what is it that you enjoy most? Eating or making?

@sharon6345 It's pretty easy. I use my wife's grandmothers recipe. Tried and true. It freezes well too.

I froze a lot of fresh blueberries last summer. I use them for blueberry muffins and pies. Yours look delicious.

Thank you. I had already used up all my berries from last year. I was just at a discount market and there was a huge package of fat blueberries that I couldn't pass up. I froze half of it but still had 6 cups that had to be used up. I think you've prompted me into making blueberry muffins tomorrow.

@Vikingswest1 I love the way they fill the kitchen with such a great aroma when they are baking. Yum.

Eating, definitely! Not much of a baker, si I buy. In the hunt for low sugar, or vegan pastries.

You could use all vegetable shortening in the crust and artificial sweetener in the filling if you wanted I like the eating part too. There are only two pies left lol.

I love everything with blueberries, included cheesecake that I made three days ago. I always make my own treats at home. I enjoy both making and eating.

Blueberry cheesecake. That sounds SO good. I'm like you. I like making as much as eating too.

I haven't had pie since the fall, when I made the mixed fruit pie. I don't eat these treats often, because I have no one to share it with. If I buy it, I end up eating it all. :-(

I know how that works. These minis freeze excellent as long as the pie is cold first. I still have half the pie crust I made and it's good in the fridge for a week and it can be frozen up to three months. I could see making just a couple of pies at a time too and just thawing out enough dough for two shells. I should really meet you one day when I have all my ducks in a row.

Cookies are fun to make, You can add whatever you want, nuts or M&M's, etc. Your pies look really good. Never tried making single pies before, but I should.

It's nice because I don't need a plate or a fork and the pies can be frozen to eat later. It's just two of us here now and this way, I don't have to be a glutton or see pie go to waste.

I enjoy both making and eating homemade goodies. I made a cherry tart. I love blueberries and pie. I may have to make some mini blueberry pies in the future.

I know just what you mean. It's just so nice to have someone else cook for you. You get to just enjoy the flavors in a relaxed setting.

That's fun too. There are some pie shops around here that have incredible pies. I'll purchase them too if it's an extravagant or elaborate creation. If it's just a fruit, cream or meat pie, I'll make it myself.

Those blueberry pies look good, I am not too much into sweets, Occasionally I will have some chocolate cake and will either make it myself or buy some, One thing I do really like are jelly donuts and I get them now and then from Dunkins

Oh noooo, blueberry is a weakness of mine! I want one! I will make things at home if I'm in a not-lazy mood. Which is rare, lol. I also just sort of love walking into bakeries and smelling the air. I could never go on a carb-free diet, if it's a baked good I need it or I'll die. I'm convinced. My favorites are just plain fresh baked bread (usually just basic white/French/Italian bread), cherry or apple pies are my favorite of all pie flavors, brownies, or cake. As far as cake flavors go I love cherry chip, funfetti, lemon, and for some reason I really love that yellow cake with chocolate frosting. Also anything that's a donut I'll eat with glee.

I love to cook and am proud to feed what I cook to other people. Of course, I have to sample everything I cook to make sure it meets my exacting standards before I let anyone else have any of it.
