These little hand pies are perfect picnic food and they’re gluten free. You can really fill them with what ever you want. I grabbed the left over filling from the stuffed tomatoes and then added other stuff. I will try to give an approximate recipe for the filling below.
You’ll need some chilled gluten free pie dough
cut into pieces a little smaller than golf balls.
But maybe not this small!
This one is better. Spoon filling onto rolled out dough.
and pinch closed using a fork. If you dough won’t stick together because you used corn starch to roll it out instead of gluten-free flour, I found lightly brushing the surfaces you want to stick together with a little water works.
Place each completed one back in the freezer to harden the butter in the dough while you make more.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or so or until golden brown but not black on the edges like happened to some of mine!
It was just one email I stopped to read!!!
Let cool on a rack.
Serve right away or make ahead.
