Spinach and Cheese Hand Pies Are Savory Pop Tarts
Only artisanal and way tastier
Apple Hand Pies
Use small cookie or pastry cutters to create little steam vents in the tops of these pies for the filling to peek through. You can make these pies as festive or as simple as you want, but however you style them, they're sure to be absolutely delicious.
Breakfast Pizza Pockets Taste Like Childhood
Make a batch ahead of time and have breakfast for the week
Fried Blueberry-Ginger Hand Pies
Fresh ginger (or 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger) gives the jammy berry filling a hint of heat. Assemble the pies one day in advance, and refrigerate until you're ready to fry.
Chicken Curry Moon Pies
Toasting the cumin brings out its flavor, and a bit of Madras curry powder makes this a savory pie that's as appealing to grown-ups as it is to kids.
Roasted Vegetable and Spinach Turnovers
Fried Apple Pies
There's enough filling to make a second batch of these delicious pies, or you can freeze it for later. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Ropa Vieja Empanadas
In Latin American cuisine, flank steak is the go-to choice for recipes that call for boiled meat because it shreds beautifully and offers bold flavor. It's also inexpensive, making it ideal for feeding a crowd. Look for annatto seeds with the spices in Latin markets or the Latin foods aisle of large supermarkets; they add rich golden color and nutty-peppery flavor.
Nutella Pie Pops
Two ingredients plus craft sticks are all you need to make these pie-on-the-go treats. The Nutella melts as the mini pies cook, so let them cool before tasting.
When Ruth Reichl was 22--long before she became famous as a restaurant critic, magazine editor, and author--she taught cooking at a glassblowing workshop in the forests north of Seattle. The final week she was there, the wild blackberries ripened all at once, "soft, rich, and juicy," Reichl says. She picked until her pail overflowed. Then she baked into the night. In the morning, these flaky turnovers were her parting gift to the glassblowers.
You can roast and peel the poblano chile up to 1 week before you make this filling. Letting the filling chill before assembling the empanadas congeals the liquids--an essential step to ensuring the pies are properly formed.
A favorite treat at any magical feast, pumpkin pasties are surprisingly easy to make (even for muggles). We developed two pumpkin-based fillings—one sweet and one savory—for these buttery hand pies, so they’re perfect for serving (alongside a goblet of pumpkin juice!) at any point during a Harry Potter inspired party. If you’re looking to save a little time and effort, you can certainly opt for prepared, refrigerated pie dough.
Halloween Ham and Cheese Hand Pies
This is an adaptable little recipe. We love the warm, spicy flavor of brown mustard, but feel free to use your family's favorite mustard. You can also customize the filling by using any kind of thinly sliced cheese and/or meat that you or your kids prefer.
Sweetheart Hand Pies
Raspberry, Lemon, and Spice Pie Hearts
These handheld mini pie hearts have the freshness of lemon with spices for warmth. They're a great way to impress someone special and making them can also be a fun shared activity. You'll need a 3-in. heart-shaped cookie cutter; or if you don't have one, make a 3-in. heart out of cardboard and cut around it.
Severed Hand Pies
This freaky-delicious treat serves up classic flavors with a Halloween twist. Impress your guests with sweet cherry filling in flakey puff pastry... in the shape of a human hand.
Roasted Cherry Hand Pies
Chill the dough to help it hold its shape as it bakes.
