Blackberry & Brie Hand Pies

July 29, 2020

The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

These homemade hand pies are so easy to make, even the kids can do them (with supervision, of course). All you need is a pack of store bought puff pastry, blackberries, brie, honey and mustard. Oh, and one more thing – an egg to create that golden color that everyone loves so much.

Since the pastry is already made, you will also need about a glass that is 5” in diameter, or thin bowl, to make the perfect circle for each hand pie base.

  • 1 egg yolk, beaten, for baking
  • 1 small pack of blackberries
  • 1 small package of brie cheese
  • 3 Tbsp. of stone ground mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. of honey

Instructions

  2. Roll out defrosted pastry dough to 1/4” thickness.
  3. Use a 5” glass bowl or cup to cut out perfect circles, usually makes about 5-6 per sheet.
  4. Begin filling the center of each by dough circle with 1-2 chopped blackberries and a few pinches of brie.
  5. Brush egg wash along one side of each circle and then close the circle so it is shaped like a moon. Press down with a fork to seal the edges.
  6. Cut two tiny slits at the top so the steam can release while baking.
  7. Bake for 18 minutes.
  8. While the hand pies are baking, stir together stone ground mustard and honey for a delicious dipping sauce.
