The best hand pie recipes can be made with a variety of ingredients. The filling can be filled with a mixture of sweet and savory flavors. To make an apple hand pie, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of the filling to each pastry. Fold the edges of the pie over the filling and seal the edges. Use fork tines to decorate the top of each pastry. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before eating.
To make a fruit-filled hand pie, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Peel and chop the fruit, and add the sugar, orange zest, and juice.
