As part of my summer baking spree, I am working on simple, single serve desserts. The fourth of July weekend was the perfect opportunity for me to create individual desserts for on-the-move party guests.
These star-shaped hand pies are perfect for grab and go. Depending on your star-shaped cookie cutter, they might look more like starfish, but that’s still perfect for summer. You can also use different cookie cutters for different holidays (i.e. a pumpkin for Thanksgiving).
Pro Tip: depending on where you live, I would strongly suggest going berry picking before making your pies. Where I live, the summer months bring strawberry, blueberry, and peach picking (among other fruits/veggies).
If you’re in a hurry, you can buy Pillsburry Dough pie crust. From my experience, it works perfectly and is already the correct width (no rolling necessary)….
