So, I love hand pies. They’re cute and portable, and kind of the perfect vehicle for getting flaky buttery crust and fruit into one’s mouth. I also love PB&J sandwiches – preferably on white bread with chunky PB and strawberry (or raspberry) jam.
And finally, I am happy to report, I have been able to marry my love of hand pies and my love of PB&J. I’ve been intrigued by the idea of a peanut butter pie dough ever since developing a recipe for concord grape slab pie, as I could never find straight-up peanut butter ice cream to serve with said pie (I can only ever find PB ice cream with add-ins . . .).Cut to now where said intrigue has morphed into PB&J hand pies made from peanut butter dough (the dough has both finely chopped peanuts, as well as creamy peanut butter in it – and, yes, please use Skippy . . . ).If you, too, are a fan of hand pie and PB&J sandwiches, I think these babies are going to make you very happy. The recipe can be found here.
