mini apple pumpkin pies with blueberry swirl

Pumpkin pie has always been one of my favorite autumn treats. The sweet spices mixed with hearty pumpkin flavor make for the perfect filling. This is a quick and tantalizing for the taste buds recipe. It combines my son’s favorite fruit, blueberries, with the fall favorite. And because they’re bite sized, you can pack them for little ones lunches 🙂 Check out my Mini Apple Pumpkin Pies with Blueberry Swirl.

“Snozzberries? Who ever heard of a snozzberry?” That’s how I actually felt when I acted cool and calm purchasing a pint of gooseberries from a local farm this past weekend. While I looked like I was on a mission for them, I’ve actually never encountered a gooseberry in my life! But here’s the thing…they were packing purchases in these great reusable grocery bags that I just had to have! (I know, I know!) So here’s what I found…

These small green berries pack a sweet bite and are often used in pies, tarts, or jams. Since I’d only bought a pint, I decided to mix them with some more traditional fruit fillings like strawberries or blueberries and bake (eek!) a pie. The addition of a squeeze of lemon juice brightened the flavors and a little whipped cream never hurt! If you can’t find gooseberries, just replace them with an extra 2 cups of one of the others. Here’s my Tri-Berry Lattice Pie.
