Fresh cherry hand pies made with frozen puff pastry dough and fresh cherries!
I’m positive your 4th of July plans include more than two people, however, hear me out: this recipe is easily scaled up to feed your crowd. Like, way too easily. And then suddenly you have hand pies for breakfast, which isn’t entirely a bad thing.
I’m so dang happy right now because 1) I have a pie in my hand and 2) we will have a crowd this Wednesday night. Not only are my parents driving up for a quick visit (hooray for living close to family again!), but the Mr. and I have met some pretty wonderful people in this new city already.
I’ve always heard midWestern people were the nicest bunch around, and I’m happy to report it’s very true.
We will be smiling from ear to ear while we cook it up for our crowd. He’s in the charge of the meats on the grill (including red chile buttermilk-marinated chicken!), and I’m in charge of side dishes and dessert.
I plan on making these fresh cherry hand pies. Puff pastry makes this recipe easy peasy, and I bet you even have the other ingredients in your pantry already. I’m one of those people that always keeps puff pastry in my freezer (because you can even make puff pastry donuts with it!), but just in case you don’t, I have a recipe for homemade puff pastry from scratch. And once you make your own puff pastry, you can also make ham and cheese puff pastry squares or apple turnovers. Did you know?!
Puff pastry is amazing stuff.
This recipe is a starting point for you. Simply multiply the ingredients by how many guests you have, and then bake!
I hope y’all have a wonderful 4th of July!
