Fruit Filled Hand Pies

I'm starting to love making tart dough because of the leftovers!  It's fun to come up with easy and delicious ways to use up the scraps of dough.

This time I made tiny fruit hand pies.   They looked cute and tasted great!  Plus, I got to use up my leftover blueberry jam.  

To Make:
1. Roll pastry dough and cut with a biscuit cutter.  Put a spoonful of jam or fresh berries into the center.
2.Outline the cutout with egg wash and place another piece of pastry on top, pressing down the edges with a fork.
3. Cut an X mark on the top and cover in egg wash and sanding sugar.  Bake at 400 F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

  1. Yum!

    Clara makes her own raspberry and blueberry jam, and our favorite is when she combines both berries in making a jam. We have raspberry bushes on out property, so the first two weeks in July are jam canning time.
