It’s strawberry season here at StoneGable!
Let’s make a summer sweet treat… strawberry hand pies! These hand pies are so so easy to make and even easier to eat on the go!
Hand pies can be made with any in-season fruit… but strawberries ripe and ready now…
I adapted this recipe from Martha Stewart’s hand pie recipe. It’s the best hand pie dough I have ever used. So easy!
STRAWBERRY HAND PIES
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and cut in quarters
2 TBS sugar

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 cup cold unsalted butter (2 sticks) cut into small cubes
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water
1 egg, lightly beaten

Put strawberries, 2 TBS sugar, lemon peel and cornstarch in a bowl and stir to incorporate and set aside.
