After Jamie made her Strawberry & Cream Hand Pies, I really wanted to try another flavor of hand pies. I love blueberries and I love that they are a fruit that you can use fresh or frozen ones and either way, it turns out great.
But I didn’t just want to make regular ole’ blueberry hand pies, so I thought I’d try making adding banana to it. I have made blueberry banana bread before and loved it so I thought why not try it? I thought these turned out great and the banana wasn’t overpowering it at all. It was a nice compliment to the blueberries. However if you don’t like bananas, you could easily leave them out and they would still taste fantastic.
- 1 cup blueberries, if frozen allow to thaw
- 1 large banana, mashed
- 2 Tbsp . sugar
- 1 Tbsp . cornstarch
- Pie Crust, homemade or refrigerated store bought crusts
- Mix together blueberries, sugar, cornstarch and banana. Set aside.
- Make pie crust according to pie crust directions or thaw store bought crust.
- Using cookie cutters, cut out an even number of each shape (generally 12).
- Spoon a small amount of the blueberry mixture onto half of the pie pieces. Lay the other half on top.
- Pinch the edges together, and then use the tines of a fork to crimp the edges.
- Bake at 400º for approximately 20 minutes, or until crust is golden.
- Cool and eat!

These are actually a lot easier to make then I expected and really don’t take very long at all. If you use homemade crust, they take a bit longer but I always think homemade crust is worth the little bit of extra time.
