And they were delicious!
First I made the CRUST!

2 cups all-purpose flour
I teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Warm the butter in the microwave until it is soft, but not melted.
Mix in a large bowl:
2 cups all-purpose flour
I teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
Then cut in using the dough blender:
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons shortening
6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Wrap your pie crust in plastic wrap. Then place in refrigerator for 20 or more minutes, while you make the PIE FILLING.


3/4 c. sugar

3 tbsp. corn starch

1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. water
4 c. fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. butter

In saucepan combine sugar, salt and corn starch with water, blueberries and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat until thick. Remove from heat and stir in butter.

The minis baked for 15 minutes each @ 400.
