For Debbie and Phil’s Great 8 Renaissance Faire themed dinner last year, Lord and Lady Van Boom were asked to bring fruit hand pies with vanilla ice cream. Although I think the pie crust recipe already posted on our blog is one of the best, I decided to try a different recipe for the hand pies. Either recipe would work just Gr8!
I thought I would challenge myself and make two different fruit pies using two different shapes.
Berry Hand Pies~
and Apple Hand Pies~This is a fun and delicious ending to a meal. And yes, why not eat with your hands! Enjoy!
Recipe makes approximately 10 berry pies and 10 apple pies.
In a large mixing bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade, combine the flour, salt, and sugar.
Add the butter pieces and beat with a mixer on low until the mixture resembles coarse meal with a few clumps of butter remaining.
Gradually add the sour cream mixture just until combined.
The mixture will be crumbly. Test by pinching a small amount of dough together to see if it holds. If it does not hold together, add more water 1 teaspoon at a time.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar and flour. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
Follow Berry Hand Pie Directions above, #2 through #19.
