Preparation

Step 1

FOR THE HAND PIES:

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Cut each pie crust in half through the middle, then in thirds in the other direction, creating 6 pieces {square off the edges to make rectangles or strips}

Place blueberries, granulated sugar, tapioca, salt and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice {save the remaining lemon juice for the glaze} in a small saucepan over med-heat. Simmer and stir until the blueberries release their juices and burst, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add lemon zest and allow the mixture to cool, about 10 minutes.

Dollop 1 tablespoon cooled blueberry filling on each pie piece. Brush the egg wash along the edges and fold the pie crust; crimp with a fork to seal. Brush each pie with the egg wash and sprinkle with demerara sugar.

Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet until golden, 15 to 20 minutes. Set aside to cool.

FOR THE GLAZE:
Whisk together confectioners' sugar and lemon juice, 1 tablespoon at a time, until a pourable glaze forms. Keep at room temperature until ready to use.

When serving, use a spoon to swizzle the top of each hand pie with the lemon glaze.
