Labor Day, seriously? Where did the summer go?! We’ve had so many amazing experiences this summer, but my brain still thinks it should be June.
August seems to have passed by especially fast. With everything that we’ve had going on this month, some important things have nearly slipped my mind–neither my husband nor I really planned anything for our anniversary until the day before, when my dad emailed to congratulate us. I guess that’s what happens when pregnancy brain (which seems to afflict both mommy and daddy) takes over your life! Luckily, we had an amazing anniversary anyway–a delicious dinner out, dessert in, and a quiet, low-key night that was the perfect respite from the busy week.
Luckily, I had the brain capacity to remember to make these blueberry hand pies before the berry season completely dries up. Simplicity is key to these pies. With blueberries still so gorgeous and juicy, you don’t need much else to make a tasty dessert. The flaky, buttery pie crust was the perfect complement to the simple fruit filling, and the size is just perfect for munching on as a sweet summer snack.
In fact, these little pies might be part of the reason I feel like we’re still right in the middle of summer. (Gorgeous, fresh berries have a way of doing that to me.) No wonder it’s so hard for me to believe that September is just around the corner.
