Sweet Pies for Sweet Friends

Sweet Pies, hosted by my Greek blogging friend, Ivy of Kopiaste. My entry: Mixed berries and Lemon Mini Pies.

mixed berries & lemon mini pies

I use diabetes-friendly recipe for the pastry that you can find the recipe here. And for the filling, these are mixed berries combined with grated lemon zest, lemon juice, and sugar to cook until boiled, and then mixed with 1 Tbs cornflour to thicken. Just scoop out 1/4 cup of the juice, mix it with cornflour and then return to the saucepan, cook until thick. Let cool and then scoop them into the pie cases, there you go, you have pies ready to go. Might as well garnish them with lemon zest.

Cheers!
