Simply A (RD) Fact: Blueberries are loaded with anthocyanins, which are anti-oxidants!
Ingredients
  • ½ pint blueberries, washed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Sprinkle of ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • Half a pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • Egg Wash - one egg beaten with 1 tablespoon of skim milk
  • Coarse sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place two individual circular gratin dishes onto the baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Stir to combine.
  3. Roll out the pie crust to an even ¼-inch thickness. Cut out stars using a cookie cutter.
  4. Portion out the blueberry filling evenly between the two gratin dishes. Top each pie with pie crust stars (about ¼ of the pie crust each). Brush the stars with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  5. Pop the baking sheet holding the pies into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the blueberries are bubbly and the crust stars are golden. Enjoy!
