Description

Haskap Berry Hand Pies & A Long Table Dinner,  imagine a sunny warm day and time in the countryside picking and learning about a berry you knew very little about and falling in love with it so much that a beautiful juicy tender flaky hand pie is made with the same passion and enthusiasm that the grower has for this unusual but very tasty berry.


Ingredients

Scale

For the sour cream pastry:

  • 1 1/4 cups organic all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg yolk, organic, free-range
  • 2 tsp ice cold water

For the filling:

  • 1 cup haskap berries
  • 1/4 cup raw cane sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon zest
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt

For the egg wash:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp water
  • coarse sugar

Instructions

For the pastry:

  1. Add flour and salt to a food processor. Pulse to combine.
  2. Add the cubed butter, and pulse until crumbs are pea-size.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, whisk sour cream, egg yolk, and ice water, then add it to the food processor. Pulse just until it comes together.
  4. Form into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and flatten into a disk. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

For the filling:

  1. Toss haskaps, sugar, lemon zest and juice, cornstarch, and salt in a bowl.

Assembly:

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I used the reusable Cookina baking sheet).
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4-in. thickness. Cut 12 rounds using a 4-inch round cutter, re-rolling the dough with the scraps. Refrigerate on the prepared baking sheet for about 15 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 375° F (190° C).
  4. Scoop 2 Tbsp of haskap mixture onto the center of 6 rounds of dough.
  5. Whisk egg and 1 tsp water in a small bowl for egg wash and brush edges.
  6. Place another round over the filling, pressing to seal. Crimp the edges with a fork, then refrigerate on the prepared baking sheet for about 20 minutes.
  7. Brush with the remaining egg wash. Cut a small X on top of each hand pie. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  8. Bake until filling is bubbling and pies are golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.
  9. Let cool on a rack for 15 minutes, and enjoy!

Notes

You can substitute blueberries for haskaps.
