I make meat hand pies often but I had to tweak the recipe (due to not wanting to go to the grocery store!) And I have created two new fillings…. Delish!
I love these hand pies because I can not find something like this -gluten free, dairy free & sugar free at many places!
PREHEAT OVEN 350 degrees Cooks for 20-30 until firm to touch and some color on top : )
For the Crust ~
1 Cup Tapioca Flour
1/4 Cup sifted Almond Flour
~ Mix these two together
Add 1 whisked Egg
& 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
& 1 tsp coconut nectar
Roll this dough into a bowl. I use Tapioca Flour and parchment paper to set up a station to roll the dough out.
I like to make ovals and put filling on one side and then fold over the dough- using the parchment paper to help! MMMM These are so delish.
For the Meat filling I used:
1 Duck Breast (I pan seared this fat side down on a cast iron and finished in the oven 400 degrees)
1 Red Potato minced
(so delicious all the veggies I used for this are from the local Shadeland’s Farmer’s Market)
1 small red onion minced
1 Tbs minced red pepper
- Cook the potato, onions and red pepper in the cast iron that cooked the duck breast in some of the duck fat (about 1 TBS)
- Add the duck breast minced
For the Vegetarian opion :
I used Goat Cheese and Broccoli minced~ YUM!
The cheese melts and the broccoli steams ! I am eating some as we speak!!
