Nectarine-Blueberry Pie: Prepare pastry for two-crust pie. Spoon 1 quart Nectarine-Blueberry Pie Filling into a pastry-lined 9-inch pie plate. Cut slits in top crust; adjust top crust. Seal and flute edge. Cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 25 minutes; remove foil. Bake 25 to 30 minutes more or until pastry is golden and filling is bubbly. Makes one 9-inch pie.Nectarine-Blueberry Tarts or Turnovers: Prepare pastry for three single-crust pies. Divide dough into 10 equal pieces and form into balls. Roll each ball of dough into a 6-inch circle and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Use 1-quart Nectarine-Blueberry Pie Filling. For tarts, place about 1/3 cup filling in the center of each circle, spreading filling to about 1-1/2 inches from edges. Bring pastry up and over filling, pleating as necessary, forming a border. For turnovers, spoon filling onto half of the pastry circle to about 3/4 inch from edge. Fold other half of pastry up and over filling. Brush edges with a little milk and seal edges, crimping as desired. Using a sharp knife, make several small slits in the top of each turnover. If desired, brush tops with a mixture of 1 beaten egg white combined with 1 tablespoon water. Bake tarts or turnovers in a 375 degree F oven about 30 minutes or until light brown. Makes 10 tarts or turnovers.
