Guest Post: Yesterday on Tuesday

I am taking a break from the blog and social media...for just a bit.
Time to regroup and get my kids settled in for summer!
BUT I have some amazing coolness for you!

Hello 504 Devotees!
I'm Malia from Yesterday on Tuesday...
your fellow fan and friend of Ms. Holly Lefevre.

 I first "met" Holly a couple years ago through blogging. She was and is one of the kindest bloggers I know. I always appreciate her insightful and thoughtful comments. And she's quite a talent-- she's got the trifecta of being a awesome crafter, fabulous writer and all-around nice person. So when she mentioned there was an opportunity for me to guest post at 504 Main-- I jumped on it!


 In honor of summer and the upcoming berry harvest, I'd like to share my recipe for Handheld Blackberry Pie-- although since blackberries can be a late summer treat, you could use raspberries or other types of berries too.

These individual blackberry pies remind me of those Hostess fruit pies (yum) but without the artificial flavors and hydrogenated oil. Give me good old fashioned natural ingredients any day!

Ingredients
  • Pre-made pie crusts (Pillsbury),
  • 2 cups of blackberries
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant tapioca
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • If you like the tops brown, side aside an egg.
  • You'll also need a round cookie cutter or lid to use to cut the dough out, a fork to make indentations and extra granulated sugar to sprinkle on top.
  • Use Flour (to de-stickify the pie crusts) and a cookie sheet and parchment paper for baking the pies.

Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Clean and pat blackberries dry
  • Gently mix blackberries with sugar, Tapioca, lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Let ingredients mingle for about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, lightly flour a cutting board and gently unroll the pie crusts. Use round cookie cutter or large lid to cut out circles and place on parchment paper.
  • Spoon a small amount of blackberry mixture to one side of circle. Fold sides together and pinch closed.
  • Use fork to make indentations on side of pie, flip pie over and do the same on the back.
  • To make an egg wash (to get the top of your pies brown) mix an egg with a teaspoon of water.
  • Gently brush egg wash on pies and sprinkle sugar on top.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • Makes 6 pies 

Thanks for having me, Holly!
