Blueberries and Cream Hand Pies

Hey again! It’s Liz from Love Grows Wild, and I’m back to share another amazing recipe with you! Last time I was here, I shared a delicious Mexican dinner idea, but today I’m going to switch it up and go for something even better… Dessert! These Blueberries and Cream Hand Pies are incredibly yummy and perfect for traveling! Bake them ahead of time to pack for parties and picnics or enjoy them warm and fresh out of the oven. Either way you will love the fresh blueberry flavor packed into these little pies!

When I think of Summertime desserts, my mind immediately goes to fruit pies. We always have an abundance of fruit during these months, and baking them into pies is the perfect way to make use of them! This recipe calls for frozen blueberries, so I always make sure to freeze plenty of them when they’re in peak season so I can enjoy blueberry pies all year long. But if you don’t have some already in your freezer, no worries! I can always find frozen berries at the grocery store too.

These pies are filled with not only blueberries, but a delicious lemony cream cheese filling too! It adds the perfect balance to the sweet tartness of the blueberries and makes the pies totally irresistible! With this recipe you will have plenty of blueberries and cream cheese left over, so you may want to grab a second package of pie crust to make more pies. Trust me, you won’t want to waste all those yummy ingredients!

Feel free to use your own favorite pie crust recipe, but I like to save time by using store-bought crust whenever I can. You can bake these pies ahead of time, and they are perfect to take along to picnics and parties. No plates or silverware needed!

  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar plus 1 tablespoon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust 15 ounce, 2 crusts
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, 1/2 cup of sugar, lemon zest, and egg and stir until smooth.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the blueberries with 1/4 cup of sugar, lemon juice, and flour. Place one pie crust on a baking sheet lined with parchment and cut into quarters with a sharp knife. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture into the center of each quarter. Then spoon 2 tablespoons of the blueberry mixture on top. Brush the edges with heavy cream and fold the crust over to create triangles.
  3. Crimp edges of the pies to seal. Brush tops of pies with more heavy cream and sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of sugar. Repeat with second pie crust and fillings.
  4. Cut a small vent in the top of each pie with a sharp knife and bake until golden, 20 -25 minutes, rotating the baking sheets in the oven halfway through.
  5. Let the pies cool completely on wire racks before serving.

Recipe Notes

You'll have more blueberries and cream cheese than you need for this recipe, so you may want to grab a second package of pie crusts to make more pies. You could probably get another 8 servings out of it!

  1. Do you wash the berries before mixing them with the other ingredients? I know that blueberries are frozen without being washed, but did not know what the extra moisture might do to this recipe. Sounds delicious, though!

    1. Averie thanks for the comment! I am almost star struck because I absolutely adore your blog!! You are amazing!! 🙂

  2. Thanks for the recipe!! Soooooooo, I used four pie crusts and made 8 hand pies all of which are currently in the oven. I used fresh blueberries so this could be the source of my issue but it seems like it wouldn’t have fit at all in a folded over quarter. I am anxiously awaiting how they turn out but would definitely say this recipe is not meant for fresh fruit. Wish me luck. ??
