Ingredients

CRUST

  • 2 1/2 cups King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour or brown rice flour blend*
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Instant ClearJel (optional; not packed in a gluten-free facility)
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 tablespoons (3/4 cup) cold butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
  • *See recipe for this blend in "tips," below.

FILLING

  • 2 1/2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons King Arthur Gluten-Free Flour or 2 tablespoons Instant ClearJel
  • pinch of salt
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice

TOPPING

Instructions

  1. Whisk together the flour or flour blend, sugar, ClearJel, xanthan gum, and salt.
  2. Cut the cold butter into pats, then work the pats into the flour mixture until it's crumbly, with some larger, pea-sized chunks of butter remaining.
  3. Whisk the eggs and vinegar or lemon juice together till very foamy. Mix into the dry ingredients. Stir until the mixture holds together, adding additional cold water if necessary.
  4. Divide in half, shape each half into a flattened rectangle, wrap well, and chill for an hour, or up to overnight.
  5. Allow the dough to rest at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes before rolling.
  6. To make the filling: If you're using fresh berries, rinse and drain them. Place the fresh (or frozen) blueberries in a saucepan. Whisk together the sugar, flour or ClearJel, and salt, and add to the berries along with the lemon juice, stirring to combine. Set the pan over medium heat. Cook until the mixture starts to thicken, about 5 minutes. Transfer the cooked berries to a bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  7. Preheat the oven to 425°F; place a rack on the middle shelf. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. To assemble the pies: Roll each piece of dough into a 7" x 17 1/2" rectangle. With a straight edge and pastry wheel, cut out ten 3 1/2" squares from each piece.
  9. Divide the filling among 10 of the squares, using about a heaping tablespoon for each. Brush some of the beaten egg along the edges of each filled square.
  10. Cut a vent into the each of the remaining 10 squares, using a decorative cutter, if desired.
  11. Top each filled square with a vented square, and press along the edges with the tines of a fork or a pie crust crimper to seal.
  12. Brush the top of each pie with some of the remaining beaten egg, and sprinkle with sparkling sugar. Transfer the pies to the prepared baking sheet.
  13. Bake the pies for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove them from the oven, and let cool for 20 minutes before serving.
  14. TIPS FROM OUR BAKERS

    • *Make your own blend
      Many of our gluten-free recipes use our King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour, which includes ingredients that reduce the grittiness sometimes found in gluten-free baked goods. Our flour also increases the shelf life of your treats, keeping them fresh longer.

      The following make-at-home blend, featuring stabilized brown rice flour, works pretty well when substituted; and it tastes better than a blend using regular brown rice flour.

      Whisk together 6 cups (28 1/2 ounces) King Arthur stabilized brown rice flour; 2 cups (10 3/4 ounces) potato starch; and 1 cup (4 ounces) tapioca flour or tapioca starch. Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version).
    • Why no listed weight for the blueberries? Berries can vary quite a bit in weight, and we found that measuring by volume is best in this case.

Corn is a large grain plant which is said to have originated in Mexico and Central America. Though viewed as a vegetable, it is actually a food grain.

The white and yellow kernels are most popular, but today, corn is available in red, brown, blue and purple also.

    The History of Aluminum Foil: Just Don't Call it Tin Foil

    Gerard Paul  September 11th, 2020  Cookware ,   Grilling & Outdoors   Aluminum foil – sometimes incorrectly called  tin foil  – is a thin, prepared sheet metal made of aluminum, often used in cooking (and food storage!). Although it may seem a little  dull  at first glance (especially on its dull side), aluminum foil has quite a fascinating story behind it. Many incredible things occurred before it became a staple in the modern kitchen. In this post, I'll discuss the various events that led to the aluminum foil revolution, and highlight the continued importance of this seemingly mundane material in our lives.  Aluminum Foil What Is Aluminum Foil?

It usually has a thickness between 0.0002 to 0.006 inches, but its width and strength vary greatly based on the intended application.  Just some of those applications include: Manufacturing thermal in
