If you suffer from the pie-addiction epidemic, I’ve concocted a solution. For those frequent and powerful cravings, pop a few pie bites. Ready in minutes!
Pie is one of the first foods I remember helping with in the kitchen. I began with the pie crust mixing, then rolling, and eventually given the latticework honor. Somewhere along the line, I fell in love. I remember quadrupling the pie crust recipe to ensure left overs, and then I would literally bake bars of pie crust to eat. I love making pies from scratch, but they do take time and lots of care. And sometimes, just ain’t nobody got time for that.
So I went into the kitchen came up with these 5-minute blueberry pie bites. Do they look like pie? Not at all. But they still deliver that warm, melt in your mouth sweetness I was craving.
For the crust I mixed 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup solid coconut oil, 1/4 cup water, a pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon brown sugar by hand. Then I took a small ball of dough, put it in my cupped hand, and hollowed with my thumb to make little cups. And then dollop of blueberry jam fit nicely in the middle. I baked for 10mins at 400, and these were ready to go. The best part: eating pie with no utensils!
