Fruit Hand Pie

Pie is one of my favorite desserts. They’re fun to make, delicious, and so easy. Especially in the summer when there are plenty of fresh fruits available, making a berry pie becomes the perfect summertime activity. With fresh fruit and only a little bit of honey, this dessert doesn’t dip too low on the unhealthy scare. So pick up some fresh fruit and try these berry pies today!

  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 4 tbsp cold, unsalted butter
  • 2 tbsp cold vegetable shortening

  1. Mix together flour, sugar, butter, and vegetable shortening
  2. Add cold water until dough is workable (soft but holds together well)
  3. Refrigerate one hour
  4. Meanwhile heat the fruit with sugar and cornstarch until juicy and aromatic
  5. Remove dough from refrigerator and roll into circle
