- 2 tsp. Realfruit Classic Pectin
- In a nonstick saucepan, add blueberries, sugar, lemon juice and vanilla and cook over medium heat until they soften and release their juices.
- Add pectin then continue to cook for another 3 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely in the refrigerator before making pastry pocket.
- 1 box pre-rolled pie crust (2 crusts per box)

- Unroll crust onto a cutting board or flat surface. Using a rectangular cookie cutter or sharp knife, cut as many pieces of approx. 3” by 4” rectangles as you can from each crust (approx. 6 rectangles from each crust).
- Lay out 6 rectangles on the parchment lined baking sheet. Add 1 ½ Tbs. of blueberry jam. Brush the edges with water (dip finger in water and gently wet edges) and then place another rectangle on top of the rectangle with the jam. Gently pinch the edges to seal and then using a fork, crimp the edges.
- Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
- Once cooled, whisk together icing ingredients and spread over each pastry pocket. Enjoy!
