It’s been said that when women are given a choice of either pie or cake, women tend to choose cake–but not me and not you, either after you get your hands on 175 Best Mini Pie Recipes by Julie Anne Hession. From sweet to savory, there are delicious hand-held pie recipes to suit every need. Like the publisher has written in the blurb about this book, “mini pies are the new cupcakes.” It’s a great new twist in the mini dessert trend.
175 Best Mini Pie Recipes by Julie Anne Hession
There are so many amazing recipes in this book that I don’t even know where to begin.
For starters, well, let’s skip to dessert. A Cookies and Cream pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie hand pies, Rich Chocolate Pudding pies, Rocky Road Brownies Pies, and, the one that is topping my “to try” list: Campfire S’mores pie. I love s’mores. I am all over that recipe and plan to make it very soon.
Like I said, there are pages and pages of great recipes like this one. They sound so easy. I will be handing this over to our boys and saying, “Pick one.” We’ll see which one they decide upon first.
Savory Hand Pie Recipes
But there’s more than just dessert pies in this hefty cookbook. “Tidy Joe” hand pies (a neater take on your typical Sloppy Joe recipe), Argentinean Beef Pies with Chimichurri Sauce, Jamaican Beef Patties, Greek Lamb and Feta Phyllo pies, Wild Salmon Pot Pies, and Roasted Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Pies to name a few.
Those just sound like a fun and unique entree, don’t you think? Our boys would love that so much.
There’s a bit of variety in here as well. You know my love for calzones: there’s a few calzones recipes in here, too.
