Mini Peach-Strawberry Pies
active: 1 hr

Summer might be my favorite baking season, if only for the proliferation of beautiful fruit pies. But pies aren't always the easiest dessert for any occasion - such as when plates and forks are at a minimum. Enter hand pies, which combine the flaky pastry and tasty fruit from pies with the portability of a cookie. And they're adorable.
Making mini pies is a little more work than the full-sized version, but they payoff - i.e. squeals of delight - is worth it. It's not hard though, you just need a large surface, a large cookie cutter (or cup/jar with a smooth rim), a rolling pin and a lot of flour. And some patience. You can cut out rounds of dough, spoon in some filling and fold them in half for a half-moon pie, or sandwich two together for a round look. (Or even cut out squares if you're in the mood).
