Foody Friday - Blueberry Hand Pies

Todays Kid Craft was food related. 

After I saw it on The Artful Parent (another awesome kid art blog)  who saw it via Angry Chicken  I thought it would be an easy one to incorporate on the holidays.

Basically make a batch of pastry. I used the recipe on Angry Chicken's  Cheat Sheet

3 cups flour
1tsp salt
1tsp sugar
200g of butter
9 tbs chill water

Get children to push out with their hands a rectanglish shape.

Miss K got tired and asked for the rolling pin (it was harder with the pin) She wasnt happy doing this as she just woke up and was questioning our sanity. Anyway at the end she was like this was awesome, these taste so good, I want more (we only made one each) so this teaches me that OFTEN I have to force my children to do craft, but it's good for them!! lol

Place blueberries (or whatever fruit in the middle) I used canned blueberries (drained) and sprinkled caster sugar all over them.

Fold pastry over and pinch edges

Bake 20 mins till golden


These were fun. All the girls wanted more. Goes to show you eat what you cook!
