Blueberry Pomegranate Pie
The Super Pie
It is known that both blueberries and pomegrante are Super Foods. Both rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Combining the two as a pie filling I thought would make one amazing Super Pie. To take this pie to another level I added the super crumble yum crust to top it off.
This particular receipe is made as individual servings. They are easy to make and impressive as gifts or for dinner parties.
Blueberry Pomegrante Recipe
1 box Pillsbury Pie Crust
2/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 cups blueberries
2/4 cup pomegranate seeds
2 cups flour
6 tablespoons low-fat butter softened
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 ½ wide by 1 ½ deep muffin pan for 6 muffins and aluminum foil.
Roll out one of the Pillsbury Pie Crust flat and cut down and across to make 4 pieces. Roll the 4 pieces into a ball and set aside. Roll out the second Pie Crust and cut down and across to make 4 pieces. Take 2 of the 4 pieces and roll each into a separate ball and set aside with the others. Take the left over pie crust and divide 6 times and a roll the left over into the pie crust balls you set aside.
Roll out each one of the pie crust balls to about 5 inches in diameter.
Spray your muffin pan and line with aluminum foil. This is to make it easier to remove the pies from the muffin tin.
Take the pie crust dough and line each hole of the pan. The crust should stretch out of the top of the muffin tin’s hole. Set aside.
In a large bowl stir together the sugar, flour and lemon juice. Next add the blueberries and pomegranate and stir to coat the fruit.
For the crust use a separate bowl and combine the flour, sugar and butter until it looks crumbly. I use a fork to stir these ingredients together.
Fill the pie crust lined muffin tin with the filling till it is even with the top of the muffin hole.
Sprinkle the crumble crust mixture on top until you cannot see the fruit.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 -30 minutes until the crust are golden brown. Then cool on a cooling rack for about an hour. You should be able to lift the pies from the muffin tin by pulling up on the aluminum foil.
Serve warm. Goes great with vanilla ice-cream or vanilla yogurt.
