Blackberrylicious

Saturday was the first Quilt Club I've been able to attend in 2 months. I was glad to catch up with my quilting peeps and anxious to work on some projects. Despite the gorgeous view of Lake Union, I was able to accomplish 1 whole project! I'll fill you in on the details tomorrow or the next day. This post is reserved for the nummies I brought. I have told you that Quilt Club is about eating, dishing and quilting ~ mostly in that order. Anyhoo, with a portion of the fresh blackberries my mom gave me I whipped up some Blackberry Turnovers. Think of these as the berry sister to Angry Chicken's Rhubarb Hand Pies. Ha!

Here's what I did (all amounts are approximations):

Blackberry Turnovers

Refrigerated Pie Crust
Blackberries (2 cups)

Sugar (1/3 cup)
Flour (2T)

Fresh Lemon Juice (1T)

Lemon Zest

Butter


Mix sugar, flour, lemon and zest with blackberries. Using a cottage cheese sized container, cut circles out of the pie crust. Place some filling on one side of the circle, leaving a 1/4 inch margin around the edge. Dot with butter. Fold over and crimp. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 for 15-20 minutes.

My mouth is watering already. Yummy!

Gorgeous view of the lake. That reminds me that I really need to visit family in Seattle soon.

Yum!!! Those look fabulous. I love black berry pie, but am too lazy to do the crust, this looks much easier.
