Blueberry Hand Pies
If you ever wished pies were easier to eat on the go or wherever the only option is using a paper plate with plastic utensils, I have the solution.
I was feeling brave and adventurous the other day and decided to tackle hand pies. This undertaking required courage on my part mostly because dealing with finicky doughs is always a little risky, especially when said dough requires more handling than what your typical pie receives.
Regardless of the risks, I jumped in and met with great success. The crust was delicious (the freshly-grated Vietnamese cinnamon sprinkled on top had a lot to do with that), and the blueberry filling was perfectly sweet and only a wee bit too juicy (as evidenced by the overflowing ooze).
My only regret is that my favorite part of the pie-eating process, the slowly melting vanilla ice cream cascading all over the place, is unobtainable. I have a solution for that, too, but it requires a bit of ambidexterity–one hand holds the pie, the other holds an ice cream cone. Bite pie, lick cone, swallow, sigh contentedly, and repeat.
