Introduction: Blueberry Basil and Goat Cheese Hand Pies

These hand pies are super good. Probably the best blueberry pie I have ever had. The recipe can also be found at



2 cups fresh blueberries

3 tablespoons goat cheese

3 tablespoons buttermilk

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh basil

small pinch of salt

2 tablespoons flour

1 doubled recipe of pie dough

1 egg

1 tablespoon water raw sugar

Step 1: Mix Ingredients

Combine the blueberries, goat cheese, buttermilk, honey, basil, and salt in a bowl.

Step 2: Add Flour

Gradually sprinkle the flour and mix until smooth. Cover and chill while you roll out the pastry.

Step 3: Roll Dough

Gently roll your dough out from the center until about ⅛ inch thick on a large piece of parchment paper. Re-flour your surface as needed, continually lifting and rotating your dough to make sure no parts are sticking.

Step 4: Cut Circles

Cut an even number of circles in the desired size.

Step 5: Make Egg Wash

To make the egg wash, lightly beat the egg with the water in a small bowl.

Step 6: Add Filling

Top half the circles with a small amount of filling

Step 7: Brush Edges

Brush edged with egg wash.

Step 8: Top Circles

Top with another circle.

Step 9: Seal and Vent

Seal edges by crimping with a fork and cut to vent.

Step 10: Egg Wash & Sugar

Brush top with wash and sprinkle with raw sugar.

Step 11: Bake

Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes or until golden brown on top and bottom.
