  • 1 Tbsp. pie filling (per pie)
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 and 1/2 powdered sugar
  • 1.4 cup milk

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F; line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Roll out pie crust until smooth and even; cut circles out of dough (as many as you can- you may need to re-roll scraps).

  5. 5. Bake on parchment paper lined baking sheet for 15 minutes.
  6. 6. While pies are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar + milk until smooth.
  7. 7. Remove cooked pies from baking sheet + drop (while warm) into glaze, coating completely.
  8. 8. Return to parchment paper and allow to set (about 5 minutes)
Hand pies are easy to make and are super delicious. A very fun activity for little kids to try with an adult!
