Tips For Making Hand Pies

You can use other pie filling flavors if you don’t like Cherry. Blueberry, strawberry, apple and peach pie filling are delicious too! Use your favorite flavor.

Premade or homemade pie crust will work with these hand pies.

If you don’t want to use a can of pie filling you can make your own pie filling from scratch.

Top it with a sugary glaze and and sliced almonds to make it a little extra special.

Get the family involved and have some fun kitchen time. Kids love to help cut out the star shaped pie crust.
