When I walked into our local Baker’s Supermarket earlier this week, I just said to myself, winter is over.

The produce looked amazing, and like I always do, I overbought. I just love the berries this time of year. I grabbed a large container of fresh blueberries, and before I knew it, I had an idea formulating in my little brain, and the ingredients in my basket,  for homemade Easy Blueberry Pineapple Hand Pies.

Two glazed pie crust hand pies filled with blueberries and pineapple sit on a white plate with two fresh berries. A fork and a cup of coffee sits in the back.

When I was young(er) I used to ride along with my grandmother to a town about 20 miles away to visit her mother, my great-grandmother.

On our way back home we often stopped by a bakery and bought day-old bread and pastries. My favorite was the hand pies.

I would get a couple of different flavors, and the hardest decision was which one to eat first. They were usually reserved for breakfast. I don’t know why because I could eat them all day long.

A blueberry pineapple hand pie cut in half showing the blue-purple filling sitting on a white plate.

When I told John about my idea, he said he wasn’t sure about the pineapple part. I didn’t say a word because I was certain he would love them.

I just love combining fruit flavors, and will often use lemons such as in my Strawberry Rhubarb bread or other fruits like my Apple Harvest Banana bread.

You could make your own piecrust, but I took a quicker route so these are “semi-homemade”.

Unroll and Bake Kroger pie crusts worked great and a can of Kroger crushed pineapple made an easy filling. Their pie crusts are flaky and buttery.

When making the filling, I left some berries whole so you could see what you were eating. Also, if you over-fill them, they will break open while baking. They will still be delicious so don’t let any go to waste! Eat them I say!

To close the little pies, I wet one edge of the crust with a little water before folding them in half. I then turned up the edge and crimped it with my fingers to seal. You could use a fork. I liked rustic but go ahead and be fancy if that’s what you like. Just make them…you’ll love them…just like John did (wink wink).

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pineapple Kroger crushed drained and juice retained
  • 2 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp salt pinch
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg or egg white
  • 1 pie crusts Kroger Unroll and Bake
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a sauce pan, combine blueberries, pineapple, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and butter. Cook over medium low heat until berries soften (5 minutes). Stir in flour and cook until thickened (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Lightly flour a work surface. Unroll pie crusts. Using a 4 inch round biscuit or cookie cutter stamp out 7 circles from each crust.
  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon drop 1 tablespoon of cooled filling onto the center of each pie crust circle. Don’t overfill or they will break open during baking.
  • Lightly wet the outside edge of 1/2 pie crust circle. Fold in half. Fold and pinch edge to close. You can use a fork to do this but I liked the rustic look of the fold.
  • Mix egg (or egg white) with a small amount of water. Whip with a fork until foamy. Brush the top of each hand pie with egg mixture. Prick with a knife or fork to vent.
  • Place on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool completely on the baking sheet.
  • Mix powdered sugar and a small amount of the reserved pineapple juice together to form a glaze. Drizzle over cooled hand pies. Allow to set briefly.
  • Store in an airtight container.

If I made regular pie using the filling, would I need to change the baking temperature?

These look and sound so delicious! We're getting through blueberries pretty fast here but maybe I should get some extra to give these a try.

Thank you Caroline! I wish we could grow them here. They are so much better if you can eat local but I'll take store bought too.

What fun little pies! Perfect for enjoying all those blueberries we picked! Perfect size for the kids and a quick sweet treat for the parents without ruining their appetite for dinner!

Thank you Jennifer! I would love to be able to pick them fresh but it's really to warm to plant them here. I sure take advantage of when they are in season though.
