So, a hand pie? Basically, it's a pie you can hold in your hand. I feel sure you figured that out on your own, but I wanted to fill you in just to be sure. Think of a customizable, homemade, in a flaky pie crust Pop Tart.
Making hand pies this weekend came from having the kids home an extra day (snow/ice day on Friday=no school), and wanting to do something fun and different (and also easy) with them. I started with my basic pie crust recipe (it's also below), and went from there!
Peanut Butter & Chocolate Hand Pies
For the Crust:
For the filling:
*I drizzled mine with some nutella, just because :)
The pies turned out really nice, and the girls loved getting to just hold them and not needing a plate or fork. I liked having those few less dishes to do!
You could fill these with different jams, and make them for a breakfast or brunch with company, you could also make them like mini apple pies and bring them to a fall pot luck. I think these little beauties have lots of potential!

Despite the name (I think of fingers and cut up chunks of palm in a pie… like Brothers Grimm stuff) I am definitely trying this next weekend when the stove is on!
