You’ve been making pies, and now you have this awkward little bit of pie filling left over. What do you do?
Don’t throw it out, make these easy hand pies instead!
You’ll need 2 heaping tablespoons of leftover pie filling per hand pie, pre-made butter pastry, and a pizza cutter to cut the strips.
Cut a long rectangle, about 4 inches wide and the length of the pastry dough. Add 2-3 heaping tbsp pie filling to the bottom half. Fold over, pinch the dough shut, and poke a few holes through the top with a fork.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
