Cute Strawberry Rhubarb Hand Pies

July 1, 2012

These cute strawberry rhubarb hand pies from Crepes of Wrath are a petite dessert.  Diced strawberries and rhubarb are combined with sugar, lemon, and spices to make the filling.  It is spooned into 1.5 inch pie dough rounds, cut using a cookie cutter.  It is important to cut a vent at the top of the dough before baking the hand pie to allow the steam to escape.  It can be something as simple as a few slits or decorative using a small cookie cutter.  You better make a double batch of these strawberry-rhubarb hand pies because they will be gobbled up instantly.


1 batch pie dough (I like Baked’s, which can be found here), chilled

5-6 stalks rhubarb, washed and thinly sliced

3 1/2 cups strawberries, finely diced

3/4 cups granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch
 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon coriander

sugar, for sprinkling
