Read more I'm still undecided on what the definitive term should be for these pastries: hand pies, turnovers, pasties… I guess it all depends on how they're folded, but I imagine someone knows the real rules. Either way, give me a mini pie any day of the week. I made a few recipes (two of which for a couple of my favorite fandoms!), and they're here for your folding, turning over, and eating needs. Let's talk some of my favorite hand pie recipes. Bacon, date, and cheddar pasties Bacon, date, and cheddar pasties These bacon, date, and cheddar pasties are sweet little round things of tasty pastry, sweet dates, and of course… major cheese action. Fold them over, twist or fold the edges, bake them in a cupcake pan, whatever floats your boat. Get the recipe here. Rustic honeyed chicken hand pies Rustic honeyed chicken hand pies These rustic honeyed chicken hand pies are inspired by the honeyed chicken recipe from A Feast of Ice and Fire cookbook. They're perfect for when you only have one hand available because you're… holding a door. TOO SOOOON. Get the recipe here. Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties “Anything off the trolley, dears?” Most of the recipes I’ve seen for Harry Potter-inspired pumpkin pasties were sweet like pumpkin pie. I figured if the Brits made a real pumpkin pasty, it’d definitely be savory, maybe with cheese, maybe with garlic. But then I was all, “wait I like pumpkin pie, too.” Thus, BOTH ways were born: a savory traditional-style pasty and a sweet, pumpkin pie-spiced version. Get the recipe here. How to make a cherry pie without an oven… in Japan Recently I got it in my head that it would be pretty dang neat if I could make a cherry pie and give it to a friend as a birthday… Read More Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here.

NEXT "Thirty Going on Ten!" Throw this throwback to childhood birthday party Show/Hide comments [ 7 ] Yum!! I made some handpies last summer that were, for lack of a better description, basically like homemade poptarts. They were filled with strawberry rhubarb, folded into rectangular hand pie crusts, and baked into awesomeness. This makes me want to make some more but with savory fillings this time! 1 agrees Reply omg delicious! Reply I love making pasties! I make a version of cornish pasties with beef, potatoes and onion. Sometimes we add carrots, mushrooms or cheese. It is a day long process, but they are so good and so worth it! 1 agrees Reply I just read that savory pasties were called "coffins" back in the 16th century! but yep, I'm with you. Love 'em. Reply YES! I will eat almost anything, if it's wrapped in pastry. 2 agree Reply Bring British, I assumed the Harry Potter pumpkin pasties were savoury – in fact, I'd always assumed american pumpkin pie was, so I've learnt something there! You'd be looking at a sort of veggie pasty, something like this with cubes of pumpkin flesh and hot, flavoursome spices like coriander, cloves and pepper, and maybe a tangy cheese like wensleydale or goats cheese. Think Pumpkin soup but still lumpy and in a pie. 3 agree Reply Yeah, I wasn't sure either, which I why I just went with both ways. 😉 I put a LOT of cheese in the savory version. 😉 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
