(FOX 2) - This week Jill of All Trades shows us how to make an easy snack at home, hand pies.
All you need is one roll refrigerated bake-it-yourself cinnamon roll dough, and one can of fruit filling for pies.
Pop open the tube of dough. Separate the individual rolls and place on a large piece of parchment paper, with room for each one to spread. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and roll them out until each roll is very thin and makes a 4 or 5" circle.
Remove the top layer of parchment. Place some fruit filling in the center of half of the circles and cover each one with one of the remaining circles. Seal the edges of each pie by pressing down with the tines of a fork until each circle is sealed around its entire circumference. Poke the tops a couple of times with a toothpick, point of a knife, or tines of a fork.
Slide the pies, still on the parchment, onto a baking sheet and bake at 375 to 400 (depending on how your oven runs) until the crusts are golden brown (maybe 15-20 minutes). Remove from oven and cool. Take the icing that comes with the rolls and put it in a pastry bag (you could substitute a Ziploc bag), cut a tiny bit off of the tip or corner, and pipe a zig-zag of icing onto each pie. Serve slightly warm for best flavor.
