Have you ever ordered a cupcake when what you really wanted was a cup-pie? It hardly seems fair that this incredibly popular dessert doesn’t have a personal-sized counterpart. Well, it does. Meet the hand pie: all the flaky deliciousness of a pie, but small and individually portioned. And not just that — they’re also fried!
These treats are everything you could possibly want from an apple dessert, and then some. And while the process of making the dough from scratch might seem complex, it’s only five ingredients blitzed up in a food processor. And the difference fresh, homemade pie crust makes to these hand pies is monumental. If apple isn’t your thing, you could always add your favorite pie filling instead — pumpkin, cherry, blueberry — the choice is yours!
