Sponsored items used in this recipe: Blueberries from Rainier Fruit and Vanilla-Cinnamon-Sugar from Adams Extract.

Blueberry Cardamom Hand Pies

Yield: 6 hand pies


  • 2 pie crusts (refrigerated or from scratch)
  • 2 c fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 c granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 lg egg, beaten with 1 tbsp water
  • Adams Extract Vanilla-Cinnamon-Sugar, for dusting


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Toss blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cardamom in medium bowl; set aside.

Unroll crusts on lightly floured surface. Using a sharp knife, cut out 6 rectangles from each crust. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon of blueberry filling onto the center of 6 rectangles. Moisten the edges of each with egg wash. Top each with a second rectangle of dough and press edges together with a fork to seal.

Place pies 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets, brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with Vanilla-Cinnamon-Sugar mixture. Cut slits in tops and bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until pies are light golden brown in color. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
