Rustic pastry parcels oozing with gooey, gorgeous filling! The hand pie is a much-loved update on the humble slice. Take these beauties with you anywhere: to a potluck, to a picnic, even to school for lunch. They pack up nicely and delight all who hold them in the palms of their hands.
This recipe had me at apple-cinnamon. Is there a better spice for the tart, crisp apple? I think not! Apple-Cinnamon Hand Pies showcase this awesome flavour combination in perfect form. (Via The Blonde Buckeye).
The pre-packaged Pop Tart is an iconic childhood favourite. But an update was definitely in order. Enter Frosted Berry Hand Pies: all the tasty goodness of Pop Tarts without the preservatives. Yum! (Via Foodie Crush.)
What I love most about this recipe is the use of rye flour in the pastry crust. Strawberry and Rhubarb Hand Pies with Rye are rustic, warming and earthy. Serve with herbal tea to those looking for a taste of home. (Via Badger Kitchen.)
