Blueberry Hand Pies

It’s summer and even though the kids are back in school (they are in year round school), I’m still all about making memories with them. These blueberry hand pies bring back so many memories of my childhood summers. I remember being around the pool with my mom and always loving summertime. Depending on the day, would depend on which of my siblings were there. I always remember getting out of the pool late afternoon to help my mom with dinner. My job was setting the table. However I loved helping my mom cook and watch here. I love that the kids love being in the kitchen.

Now it’s my turn to make some amazing memories with my kids. Isabella couldn’t wait to make these hand pies. I mean a pie you can eat with your hands, how can that be bad? Plus these are easy to make, thanks to a store bought crust. Isabella did the majority of the work. JJ did the video for this project. He did pretty good with the video and you check it out for yourself right here.
