I thought that a fitting follow-up post to Shoo-fly Pie would be hand pies, because they're what you do with the extra pie crust when you're done crafting a homemade pie. For this one, I again cheated and used a store-bought crust, which worked great. I still promise to take you through making pie crust later in the month when I make apple pie!
Hand Pies are basically bits of pie crust that you put butter and cinnamon and sugar inside of, crimp it all closed, and bake for about 15 minutes or so. They're so easy and delicious, and really very quick and easy to make. Check out my pictures:
Here are the pies rolled out and ready to be crimped closed!
Here are the pies, ready to go in the oven- aren't they the cutest?
And here are the finished hand-pies. Bake them till they start to get golden brown, and feel free to experiment with making your own crust or with different things for the filling. Enjoy!
