    My mum used to make me a ‘special’ pie all to myself. I LOVE hand pies. I make them healthier now, than my mum did and super quick. I use big spoons of fruit sweetened jam. Though I love inventing, when I make these pies I use traditional strawberry or marmalade jam. I made cherry scones for this month SRC, next time I need a pie I’ll be trying cherry, maybe I’ll go wild and add vegan chocolate chips!

    Good SRC pick. wonderful photo’s too!

      Oooh – love the idea of adding chocolate chips next time! (And using jam when my favorite fruit is out of season :)

    Love these. The sprinkling of turbinado sugar adds so much to the look of these. Great pick?

      My daughter is the same way – if she sees a photo of a kid cooking, she wants to jump in too. Let me know if he takes a crack at them!

      A cherry pitter is a must :) I have a hand-me-down from my grandma but I’ve seen a nifty one from OXO :)

    I’d love to make a gluten-free version of these scrummy cherry hand pie! I’m not much of a pie crust maker, so I’m thinking of defrosting and using my “freezer staple” Whole Foods GF pie crust. I think this would be a fun cooking project to do with the kids too :-)

      Again, another food/cooking thing we share – I rarely make pie crust (that’s what frozen crust are for!) Definitely get the kids involved – Mia actually thinks it’s fun to pit the cherries…though that can get rather messy rather fast.

    Hi Deanna,

    So glad I stumbled across your blog on google+! Good choice with these pies. I have to say, my favourite fruit in desserts is probably apple, so when I try these I might try with apple and cinnamon for my own twist. Love the idea of a hand held, portable dessert. I was wondering, as you’ve used coconut oil does this affect the taste of the pastry? Because I am not sure coconut would marry well with every flavour.

    Sita :)

      Sita – thanks for stopping by – I look forward to checking out your blog! Great question about the coconut oil, it didn’t have any “coconuty” flavor in the crust so I think you could use it for your apple cinnamon (sounds delicious!) hand pies or of course, swap in butter if you prefer.

    I love cherry hand pies! Totally remind me of summers back on the east coast- we would make them all the time in the summer, my favorite treat!

      So fun! I can’t believe I’ve never ate them nor baked them until now :) BTW, love your grilled plum & arugula salads and looking forward to part 2 :)

    Wow, your pies look beautiful! So glad to see you tried these out, I hope they turned out to your liking!

    I absolutely LOVE the tweaks you made, like the almond extract, lemon zest, and turbinado sugar additions. Makes my mouth water!

    Happy to bake with you, see you around next SRC!
