Ground Cherry Cupcake Pies

24 Aug

We got some ground cherries in the csa share.. Not ever heard of, seen, or eaten them i searched online for a recipe and this is what i came up with! The flavor is hard to describe. Not too sweet, not too tart, just different!



Ground Cherry Cupcake Pies
adapted from vegan yum yum

pie dough (I used one pillsbury ready made crust
1 1/3 Cup Ground Cherries, de-husked and washed
1/4 Cup Sugar + 1/2 tsp Flour

Cut 12 rounds of the pie dough bigger than the bottom of the cupcake cup. Line each cup with pie round to make pie shells.

Preheat the oven to 400. fill each cup to the top, slightly overflowing, with ground cherries.

Add 1/2 to 1 tsp of the sugar/flour mixture to each cup, depending on how sweet you want your pies.

place remaining pie rounds over your pies. Pinch the edges down, slash a X in the top with a sharp knife, and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for several minutes before gently removing them from the cupcake tin to cook completely.
