Hand Pies !

Colleen Sowa


My grandchildren just love making these little hand pies! They love eating them too!

We cook and bake together daily. They are all becoming wonderful little cooks... while we are creating wonderful little memories... just like my grandmother and I made together.

If you don't have a hand pie press or a pierogi dumpling press, you can still make this by pressing the edges together.

This is a great recipe for kids to help with because it is so easy to do and tastes so good... and they really feel like they have created something wonderful!
