The farmer's market is open and I finally got to go. I bought rhubarb, strawberries, and asparagus. I don't make pie for almost the entire rest of the year, but ever since I discovered strawberry rhubarb pie a few summers ago, I make at least 2-3 pies in a 1 month period.
Last year, at the end of strawberry season, I saw a recipe for hand pies. I didn't have time to make any more pies, so when I came home with two pints of strawberries and a batch of rhubarb yesterday, I got to work on these guys.
I didn't do the egg wash on top and I didn't have any orange zest. I think they would be better if they had something on top of the pies, and I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say that they were worth it, work-wise, but since I now have a tupperware of them in my office instead of having to go home to eat pie, they certainly win on transportability.
Any other good hand pie recieps out there?
