It’s the first day of summer, hooray! It’s also Pie Party today where the food blogging community shares delicious pies with each other. I feel fortunate to have met so many wonderful people through the blogging community. Pull up a chair, grab a spoon or fork and dig in!
Here’s what you’ll need…
Blueberry Thyme Pie Filling
1 pint blueberries
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon
1 tablespoon honey
3 springs of thyme
Make a simple syrup by combining the water, sugar, honey and lemon in a saucepan. Heat on stove top on medium heat until you reach a boil, then add the fresh thyme, remove from heat, set aside and allow to marinate for 10 minutes. Return syrup to stove top, add blueberries and simmer on low heat for one hour, until blueberries have reached a jam consistency.
Strawberry Brandy Pie Filling
1 pint of strawberries (sliced thin)
3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons of brandy
3 tablespoons raw sugar
Preheat oven for roasting the strawberries to 350 degrees.
In a bowl combine strawberries, balsamic vinegar, brandy and sugar mixing well until strawberries are completely coated. Spread the strawberries onto a cookie sheet evenly. Place in oven and roast for 20 minutes, remove and let cool to room temperature.
Mini Phyllo Shells
2 packages of Athens mini fillo shells (15 per package)
I have never made phyllo dough from scratch, though I would love too someday. For this recipe I used pre-baked phyllo shells, prepare per package instructions. Once the phyllo shells have thawed, line a cookie sheet with 30 phyllo shells, filling 15 shells each with strawberry and blueberry pie filling, then bake for 12 minutes.
Very Vanilla Whipped Cream
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoon raw sugar
2 tablespoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, with an electric blender or by hand whip the the heavy cream until soft peaks are reached. Scoop a tablespoon onto each strawberry and blueberry phyllo pie. Serve immediately!
Happy Summer! Pie Party 2012 is on Facebook swing by and check out all the other fantastic pies at this event!
