Mini Berry Pies (Almond flour)

I used the same almond pastry as used for my cherry pie and made mini berry pies.  Perfect for a packed lunch or when you want to serve individual fruit pies.   I use berries, purely because of the carbs, but you could use any other cooked fruit that you wanted to eat.

I use mini silver foil cups for this but a well greased muffin tin should work.   I sometimes use frozen fruit as it is cheaper (have you seen the price of blueberries recently? eek!).  I sometimes find the pastry a bit crumbly but that makes for a crumble like topping which is scrumptious…well, the opinion in our household.

INGREDIENTS

MY LATEST VIDEOS

3 cups of almond flour

1/4 tspn baking powder

1/4 tspn salt

60 g unsalted butter, cut into small
pieces

2 tblspn honey

1 egg

Pie Filling

2 cups berries  (fresh or frozen)

1/4 cup of honey (or alternative sugar subsitute) to taste

METHOD

  • Place the fruit and honeye in a saucepan,  bring to the boil and simmer for 30 mins (the mixture should thicken). Cool until ready for use.
  • Place all pastry ingredients into a food processor and blend (you could do it by hand and work those arm muscles).
  • Cover and put into the fridge to cool for 30 minutes.
  • Separate and the dough into two balls.
  • Put a sheet of greaseproof/parchment paper on the  kitchen worktop, place the one ball of pastry on here. Cover with another piece of greaseproof/parchment paper and roll out the dough to fit your individual pie dish.
  • Lift the crust up and place on the pie dish. Slowly remove the paper and press the pastry onto the dish.
  •  Add the fruit filling to the crust. Take the second pastry ball from the fridge and roll as per the first one.
  • Place the pastry on top of the pie filling, pressing down over the edges.
  • Bake the pie for 15 to 20 mins until the tops are golden brown.
  • Eat and enjoy!

      I’ve not tried this with coconut flour. It’s on my lists of tweaks to recipes now!

    these turned out really well, haven’t had blueberry pie in our house in a long time. I am thinking about omitting the salt and adding about 1/2 cup parmesean cheese as a “binder” and to add to the flavor profile. I will let you now how it turns out.
