Course: Dessert
Servings: 6 Pot Pies
Ingredients
Filling:
  • 5 cups fresh berries: any combination of raspberries blackberries, pitted cherries (ok, that’s a drupe not a berry), blueberries, sliced strawberries, etc. (frozen berries also work)
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • Vanilla bean ice cream for topping the final product
Dough:
  • 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe Mix (All Purpose or Original Mix)
  • 8 Tbsp (1 stick) butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 egg or aquafaba*
Instructions
Filling:
  1. In a bowl, mix the berries, corn starch, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and cinnamon. Let it sit at least 30 minutes, stirring a few times.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  3. Using six 4-oz ramekins or oven-safe glass bowls, fill each almost to the top. (Adjust accordingly if your ramekins are a different size.)

Dough:
  1. Blend the butter and the sugar in a bowl. Add the egg and beat together until creamy.

  2. With a fork or mixing spoon, gradually add Chebe mix and blend until it can form a ball. Chill dough in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and with a rolling pin, flatten each piece into a round so that the diameter is about ½” more than the rim of the bowl of fruit (about 5” diameter).
Bringing It Together:
  1. Place the dough over the fruit and lightly crimp it around the edges. With the tip of a knife, pierce a few holes in the surface of the dough to allow the heat to escape.
  2. Place the bowls on a sheet pan and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until the tops are golden.
  3. Remove and, allow to cool for 10 minutes. Top with ice cream and dig in! The combination of these flavors is a taste buds’ delight!
Recipe Notes

*For an egg-free version, use 3 Tbsp aquafaba to replace one egg.

 

If you can’t eat it all in one sitting, or if you want to make them for a future day, they freeze well. Keep them in an airtight container in the freezer. Thaw before serving. Pop them in the microwave if you want to warm them.
