Sweet and fruity hand pies are dusted with cookie crumbs! Use premade pie crust dough or make Whole Foods’ easy Classic Pie Crust. If you don’t have a 5-inch cookie cutter, use a small bowl or make smaller pies.
Summer Fruit Hand Pies
3 cups chopped summer fruit, such as peeled and pitted peaches or nectarines, strawberries or pitted cherries
5 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons 365 Everyday Value All-Purpose Baking Flour, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup crushed 365 Everyday Value Organic Vanilla Wafers or Ginger Snaps
2 recipes prepared pie crust (or two rolled out 9-inch crusts)
Preheat oven to 375°F. On a floured surface, roll out dough until about 1/8-in thick. Cut into twelve (5-inch) circles, rerolling dough as needed. In a medium bowl, toss together fruit, sugar and flour. (Do this just before filling the pies; if done too far in advance, the mixture can get too juicy. Use less or more sugar, as desired, depending on fruit’s natural sweetness.)
Working one at a time, spoon some filling into the center of a circle of dough; brush edges with water. Fold over into a half moon and crimp edges to seal. Brush top with heavy cream, sprinkle with cookie crumbs and bake on a large, parchment-paper-lined baking sheet until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
