Ingredients

  • 4.5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2.5 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 small lemon zested and juiced
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pre made frozen pie crust
  • 1 egg beaten for eggwash
  • Turbinado sugar for sprinkling
  • Whipped cream optional

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  • Remove the pie crust from the freezer and defrost on the counter for 15 mins.
  • Meanwhile in a large pot over medium heat, add the blueberries, sugar, and cornstarch. Stir.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, stirrin and smashing the blueberries as you go.
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the mixture has thickened.
  • Add in the lemon zest, juice, and vanilla extract.
  • Stir to combine and remove from heat to cool.
  • Make the stars.
  • Remove the pie dough from the pan gently trying to keep its shape. If it cracks, just press it back together.
  • Roll out the dough on a piece of parchment paper and cut out star shapes using a cookie cutter. Repeat with the scraps.
  • Place the stars on a cookie sheet, and brush each star with a little bit of egg.
  • Sprinkle with the tubinado sugar and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the stars are golden brown and crispy.
  • Cool.
  • To assemble:
  • Place one cookie down, top with blueberry pie filling and repeat with more stars and filling. Top the last star with whipped cream.

Notes

  • You can smash the blueberries as much or as little as you want.
  • The pie filling recipe will make enough for 1 regular sized pie, the stacks will be up to you depending on how much filling you use and how many cookies you use to stack.
  • 1 pie dough crust will make about 18-24 pie cookies depending how thick you roll them out.
