Ingredients

Blueberry Pie Filling

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 3 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 juice of one lemon wedge (about a teaspoon)

Pie Crust

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup Armour Premium All-Natural Lard
  • 4 tablespoons ice water with cubes in it *only use as needed. My crust needed 3 tablespoons of ice water.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Grease a 12 count muffin tin lightly with lard.

For Pie Crust filling

  • In a large bowl combine berries, sugar, corn starch, lemon juice, and cinnamon fully; set aside.

For Crust

  • In a bowl, add flour, lard, salt, and work in 1 tablespoon of ice water as needed.
  • Use floured hands to work the dough until fully combined and not sticky.
  • To make individual pie crusts, roll out dough to 1/4" thick.
  • I used a large mason jar lid which was the right size for the circles. You will have to re-roll out dough maybe twice for all the crusts.
  • You will have some excess dough to use for toppers. This is optional but I had a star cookie cutter just small enough to make this size.
  • Place each crust into a muffin tin space, and then fill with blueberry filling mixture.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crusts slightly golden brown and filling is bubbly.
