  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough in half and shape into balls. On floured surface, roll from center to edges into 12 inch circle. Avoid rolling too thin.
  3. Spread approximately 2 cups blueberries on each rolled pastry, or enough to make a single layer of blueberries leaving a 2 inch border. Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar and slices of butter.
  4. Roll pastry like a jelly-roll, tucking the ends as you roll, and place on a cookie sheet.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until golden brown.

I'll tell you why I loved this recipe: for starters, my granny used to make these. Yes, the insides are supposed to spill out. I usually scoop it on top of it and serve with homemade whipped cre...

Rather than using store bought pie crust, I used crescent roll dough. It was great. I had crescents filled with blueberry goodness and everyone loved them!

I made a massive mess out of this, and my berries leaked out and burned. My piggie family managed to eat most of it anyway, but I don't think I will attempt again.

As another reviewer pointed out, this does look like a pie that's been dropped on the floor. But it is tasty nonetheless! I used strawberries rather than blueberries, plus a dash of lemon zest. ...

So Yummy! Used a fork and pressed edges while rolling and did no leak. Also sprinkled some sugar on top. Going to make again for sure...except try with cherry or applel

What a great idea - rolled up pie! For some reason my kids didn't like it but I think most kids would. I tried it with the milk and sugar when it was warm and that was good but it was much bette...
