DESSERTS Fruity Hand Pies

A hand pie is literally that, one you form by hand and one you eat in your hand! They can be as higgeldy-piggeldy as you like in shape as long as you make sure all sides are sealed so the filling stays put (though as you’ll see from our photo this is a virtual impossibility and some of the fruity juices will inevitably leak out). This makes them look even more hand-made so they will be even more of a success. Use any fruit.
