My kids love helping me make these little pies.

They go great packed in their lunch for school..

We made blueberry and cherry.

Stir the flour, salt, sugar and baking powder. I used my food processor for the whole process.
Add 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.
I cut the dough in half. Then roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
I 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.
Place 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.
Place on a cooling rack for about 5 minutes...then enjoy a nice tender, fruit filled pie..I think they are so cute..
