makes about 24 pies
assorted pie fillings or preserves
1Stir the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. I used my food processor for the whole process.
2Add the half and half and melted butter, till forms a ball. Or if not using a processor, cut in the butter with a fork and add the half and half.
3I cut the dough in half. Then roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
4I use a med sized glass to cut the dough into circles. Then spread out with fingers a bit more.
Add about a teaspoon of filling, fold over and crimp edges with a fork.
5Place on a baking sheet., I lined mine with parchment paper.
Brush each pie with egg yolk. Sprinkle with some sugar if you like. I sometimes drizzle a glaze on them also, after cooling a few minutes
Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown.
6Place on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes...then enjoy a nice tender, fruit filled pie..I think they are so cute..
