Strawberry Gluten-Free Hand Pies

I love any excuse to celebrate and Cinco de Mayo is as good an excuse as any! After you have had your fill of chips and queso and jalapeno margaritas, you might need a dessert. These strawberry gluten-free hand pies are where it’s at. Super easy. Kids and adults will DEVOUR them.

We made these for the first time for PI DAY. You, know, March 14 – 3.14. Cute, right? My daughter had a Battle of the Books competition and brought enough for the team. Yum. Any excuse to make a sweet treat!

Keegan is also on board with hand pies. They are just the right size for pudgy little baby hands. He really enjoyed using a fun circle cutter to make the shapes.

To make these look REALLY cute, I used my dumpling press. I love small kitchen tools. This one is inexpensive and it won’t take up any room in your cupboards. I got mine from Sur La Table for less than $10.

Dumpling Press!! How cute, right?

The theme for this week’s Sunday Supper recipes is EASY Cinco De Mayo ideas. I immediately thought of these delicious hand pies. You can’t get much easier than this. Making your own dough might seem daunting, but if you have a food processor, it can be done in minutes. For the filling, l find it easiest to cheat a bit and use strawberry pie filling from the grocery store. Easy peasy.
