Easy to make. Making pies might sound hard, but these couldn’t be easier. Especially since you’re starting with store-bought pie dough.
Super shareable dessert. Mini blueberries are perfect for sharing and handing out to kiddos on the run. You’ll want to bring these to every summer picnic and party you go to.
Blueberries + Lemon. There’s nothing better than the combination of blueberries and lemon and this dessert brings those flavors together perfectly.
Fun for the kids to help you make. The little ones will love helping you cut the dough out into fun shapes, sealing the dough tops, and sprinkling the sugar over the top. And, of course, eating them.
How to Make Mini Blueberry Pies
Preheat the oven to 425. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a small bowl, combine the blueberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Roll out the pie dough circles and cut them into your desired shape. Re-roll out the scraps with a rolling pin. You should be able to get enough to make at least 10 mini blueberry pies.
Arrange half of the dough cut-outs onto the baking sheet. Place ½ tablespoon of lemon curd in the center of each one. Top with one heaping tablespoon of the blueberry mixture.
Dip your finger in water and run it around the edges of the dough round. Place another round on top and press it down to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork.
Brush each pie with a mixture of beaten egg whites and almond milk. Sprinkle them with sugar. Cut slits on the top of each pie to vent.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Place pies on a rack to cool completely.
If you want to add more lemony flavor, drizzle them with a lemon glaze, like the one I used on these Strawberry Hand Pies. Just mix ⅔ cup powdered sugar, ½ tablespoon lemon zest and ½ tablespoon lemon juice. Stir until completely mixed and drizzle over the pies.

MY RECIPE ESSENTIALS
Wilton Nesting Hearts Cookie Cutter Set
This is the set of heart-shaped cookie cutters I have. I used the second largest one with scalloped edges for these cute little mini blueberry pies -- it's the perfect size. The smallest one is perfect for making Valentine's Day dog treats :).
MIU Silicone Baking Mats
I picked up this set of silicone baking mats at Costco several years ago and have used the daylights out of them ever since. They worked perfectly for making these mini pies and clean-up was super easy. I also love them for making cookies because the dough doesn't spread as much as they do on a baking sheet, so you can bake cut sugar cookies with nice, clean edges.
Prepworks Magnetic Measuring Spoons
Rifling through my gadget drawer to find measuring spoons isn't fun. Since I switched over to this set of nesting magnetic measuring spoons, they're all right where I need them. The dual sides are obviously nice for reaching into all-sized spice jars. I've also used the round side of the tablespoon and ½ tablespoon for scooping and shaping portions of bonbons or small meatballs, so there's that. For these mini blueberry pies, it's just a handy measuring spoon.
