Heavenly Mini Blueberry Splenda Pies ~ in Muffin Tins!


Blueberries
“You ought to have seen what I saw on my way
To the village, through Mortenson’s pasture to-day:
Blueberries as big as the end of your thumb,
Real sky-blue, and heavy, and ready to drum
In the cavernous pail of the first one to come!
And all ripe together, not some of them green
And some of them ripe! You ought to have seen!” 
Robert Frost 



When summertime rolls around, I’m thrilled ~ warm weather, sunshine and Blueberries!

The aroma of these little pies baking was mouthwatering!




I’m always on the lookout for blueberry recipes, and now can't remember where this one came from.

I mixed Splenda with the fruit instead of sugar, it measures the same as sugar.  I didn’t tell Bill it was made with Splenda until later; he didn’t notice a difference with Splenda, and neither did I.  




For the filling, I added a splash of lemon juice, and a couple of pinches of cinnamon.  

The pies are easy peasy to pull together, but to make them even easier, use Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust.  You’ll be eating dessert in a flash!





Baked in a muffin tin, the pies are a perfect-size yummy dessert or snack!  

These blueberry pies a great dessert for anyone who needs/likes a dessert with low sugar.  

It’s hard to eat just one!

  2. Pam, Beautiful little blueberry pies! Love blueberries and I buy them year around if they aren't too pricey. As for Splenda, we use it all the time...on fruit, cereal, etc. We even use brown 'sugar' Splenda on our oatmeal. Great stuff... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. Hi Pam, That looks AWESOME. Thanks for the recipe. I love Blueberries and I eat them year-round. HOWEVER, I had to buy mine frozen in those big bags from Sam's.... I'm sure yours are much better --but mine are okay....

    Praying for the flooding in Texas and at my son's home now... He's already gone through way too much this month... Prayers for Mark.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  5. There aren't blueberries in my part of the world, only frozen ones and the package is expensive. However, I'm never without light blue berry jam at home, and I also use sweeteners such as splenda, stevia,sucrose (they say sugar...kills).
    Anyone would go wild over your blueberry muffins as dessert or breakfast. That's what I feel about myself.

    1. Hi Duta! I'm with you on blueberry jam, esp made by Stonewall Kitchen with the tiny Maine blueberries, excellent! I've just started using stevia and will try it with fruit. Blueberries rule!

  6. Bill would love these mini pies! Me, too. And I love the idea of using ready made crusts as what I make is not very durable when I try to do anything fancy (or mini!) :)
