We’re in full swing with strawberries here in Georgia. We went picking last weekend and got 5 buckets full of strawberries. I froze some, made smoothies, made syrup (post on that coming soon.)
It’s been a week now and I need to do something with the remaining strawberries in the fridge before I have to throw them out.
Then my friend over at Les Repas de Mon Enfrance: Growing Up Franco-American, posts this wonderful Mocha Crunch Cake. He’s french and one thing the french know how to do is bake. This cake is on my list of things to make. But I start wandering through his pictures, so much to drool over and I find his recipe for Blueberry Hand Pies.
Strawberry Hand Pies
adapted from Les Repas de Mon Enfrance: Growing Up Franco-American
This recipe will be perfect for any fruit or berry, just adapt your lemon juice to fit the fruit. On the original recipe with blueberries it called for 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. This was too much for the natural juiciness of the strawberry but would be perfect for apples or pears.
I see a lot more hand pies in our future.
