Hand Pies: Homemade, On-the-Go Deliciousness

Hand Pies: Homemade, On-the-Go Deliciousness

Hand pies are a delicious example of versatility. These portable edibles, baked or fried, sweet or savory showcase some of the season’s best ingredients. At 4 Rivers Smokehouse’s The Sweet Shop in Winter Park, Florida, they specialize in sugary comfort foods, and have revamped their menu in time for spring. Their Strawberry Hand Pie is a sleek version with a pie dough crust stuffed with a fresh strawberry filling. Bake them for a quick breakfast on-the-go or afternoon snack or place the unbaked pies in the freezer to serve later.
