Yield: 1 pie

Holiday Hand Pies

Ingredients

  • 2 9"/23 cm refrigerated pie crusts
  • ½ cup desired canned pie filling, roughly chopped if containing large piece such as apple
  • ½ tsp. Cinnamon-Vanilla Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400° F/200° C.
  2. Place pie crusts on Pastry Sheet and use tree holiday cookie cutter* to cut out pie crust. 2 trees make 1 pie. It may be necessary to reroll excess dough to make 3 pies using 1 crust.
  3. Place 1 tbsp. pie filling on top of tree shape and place another tree shape over filling. Gently press edges together using tines of a fork.
  4. Using fork, pierce the top pie crust a few times.
  5. Brush top of pie with melted butter and sprinkle with seasoning and sugar.
  6. Place Silicone Wonder® Mat on a cookie sheet and place pies on Silicone Wonder® Mat. Bake 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

The large star shape also works to make hand pies, however, use ½ tbsp. of filling instead.

    My friend purchased an empanada mold from Tupperware for me last month. I’m looking for recipes or instructions for this item.
