It’s almost my favorite time of the year, fall! I mostly love it because it’s pumpkin spice season and yes, I love grabbing a PSL while wearing my favorite sweatshirt in the mornings. This time I paired pumpkin spice with some fresh plums (kinda loving the stone fruit this season!) and blueberries to make mini hand pies!
Chicago Metallic was kind enough to send me a non-stick hand pie kit to review! The kit comes with a small pie cutter/press and a non-stick pie pan! This actually made it easier to make! Most because all the filling stayed in the pastry and not all gushing out since the pan has a divet to hold the filling!
I used store-bought pie dough, but feel free to make yours at home. I just haven’t had the time to do it lately. Plus, every once in a while it’s ok to cheat 🙂 Using the pie cutter/press took a few failed attempts before I got it right. Once I got the hang of it, it was super fast and efficient.
I sprinkled the top of my hand pies with Demerara sugar for a little texture and sweetness. It worked out pretty well especially since the plums were nice and tart!The pumpkin pie spice matched really well with the plums and blueberries. Warm spices, tart plums, and sweet berries all come together for a delicious hand pie!
