Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. (James 1:17)

Blueberry Pigs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 t. salt

cup shortening

6 T. cold water

4 cups blueberries

1 pinch ground cinnamon

cup white sugar

cup butter, chilled & diced


Preheat oven to 350F (175C). In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough in half and shape into balls. On floured surface, roll from center to edges into 12" circle. Avoid rolling too thin. Spread approximately 2 cups blueberries on each rolled pastry, or enough to make a single layer of blueberries leaving a 2" border. Sprinkle with cinnamon, sugar and slices of butter. Roll pastry like a jelly-roll, tucking the ends as you roll, and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes 2 Pigs.
