Submitted by: AMBROSIAHINO

Introduction

from Anne McCaffery's Pern from Anne McCaffery's Pern
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    Crust:
    1/2 cup cup butter or margerine
    2 tablespoons granulated sweetening
    2 1/2 cups flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup ice water

    Filling:
    5 cups blueberries (or one 20-ounce package, frozen)
    1 cup granulated sweetening
    1/4 teaspoon powdered klah bark (cinnamon)
    2 teaspoon citrus juice
    1-2 tablespoons butter or margerine

    1 beaten egg

Directions

Crust:
Cut the butter into chunks. Combine the dry ingredients into a bowl. Work the butter gently into the dry mixture with a fork until pieces thesize of peas form. Sprinkle the water over and work in. (do not overwork the dough) Form the dough into a ball.

Filling:
Tently toss berries with sweetening and klah bark in a large bowl. Sprinkle citrus juice over mixture. Spoon berries into crust and dot with butter.

For Twelve Gather Pies:
1 crust recipe
1 beaten egg
1/2 filling recipe

Roll out dough on a floured surface to a 1/8-inch thickness. Using a 3-inch cookie cutter, cut out 24 circles. Lay out 12 on a greased cookie sheet. Divide filling among circles, spooning approximately 2-3 tablespoons into the center of each, leaving a 1/4-inch border.

Brush the border with egg. Lay the second circle on top of each pie, and press edges together with a fork all the way around. (Stretch the top crust gently to fit if necessary.) If desired, mix together 1/4 cup water with 1 1/2 tablespoons sweetening; brush top of each pie with mixture for a sugary glaze. With a knife, cut 3 or 4 short slits in the top of each pie.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until crust is golden. Slide gently off cookie sheet with spatula. Serve hot.
