After a long day of Saskatoon berry picking, it’s time to fantasize about what you’ll make with all those delicious berries! I’ve rounded up my favourite Saskatoon berry pie, muffins, cake and more for your baking pleasure.
You’ve been making pies, and now you have this awkward little bit of pie filling left over. What do you do?
Don’t throw it out, make these easy hand pies instead!
You’ll need 2 heaping tablespoons of leftover pie filling per hand pie, pre-made butter pastry, and a pizza cutter to cut the strips.
Cut a long rectangle, about 4 inches wide and the length of the pastry dough. Add 2-3 heaping tbsp pie filling to the bottom half. Fold over, pinch the dough shut, and poke a few holes through the top with a fork.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
Nothing says summer like a classic Saskatoon berry pie. You can have your blueberries, but I’ll take slightly tart Saskatoon berries instead any day of the week.
When you were growing up, did you have a favourite afterschool snack? I don’t remember what I had when I was at home, but I do remember what my grandma usually made for me when I was at her house–Saskatoon Berry Muffins.
Currently the temperature is hovering around 30 degrees celsius these days and I will do anything to avoid turning on my oven. Enter the no-bake saskatoon berry cheese cake.
No oven, no cracking cheesecake, and no worrying about burning or undercooking a traditional cheesecake.
