Mini Cherry Almond Hand Pies

Mini Cherry Almond Hand Pies are a cross between a cookie and a pie. Change out the fruit to make any kind of hand pie you like. mini cherry almond hand pies

A lot of times when I bake, I bake in bulk. What I mean is that if I am working on a project or something for a client, I might bake 8 things in one day. That is a lot of baked goods to have in your house at one time. I send cookies and cakes and pies to school with the kids for their teachers, to the neighbors, and sometimes I send treats to work with my husband. One this particular batch baking day, I sent 6 different kinds of things to the air station, and this was the hands down the favorite. I usually make bets with myself on which one it is going to be and this time I was totally wrong. (These are delicious, but from my experience, it’s usually hard to beat anything with chocolate.)

These Mini Cherry Almond Hand Pies are a cross between a cookie and a pie and perfect for all of your summer get-togethers. I made my own crust, but you could use a roll out pie crust and have these in the oven in mere minutes. I used cherry, but you could obviously use whatever kind of jam you like. The part that you cannot skip is the glaze. It has just a touch of almond extract, and when something has almond extract in it, I cannot say no. It makes these little pies.

These are just the thing when you want a bite of pie, and not the whole slice. These are also great for the dead of winter when you need a reminder that summer is coming again. Especially if you use homemade jam that you made at the peak of cherry and berry season.

    Love hand pies! These look pretty easy to assemble. I might cheat and use ready made pie crust :). I have some in the fridge right now.

    These look FAB-U-LUS!
    I am glad that I reread the recipe, as I was about to use pie filling instead of the preserves. When using the preserves; the possibilities are endless when it comes to the filling.
    I know I will be making more of these little ‘babies’.
    Thank you and hope you have a wonderful day.
