Email

While not a new concept, hand pies turn apple pie into a convenient, easy and mess-free treat for Fourth of July celebrations. The term hand pie has been around for a long time; farming cultures used to make them for workers to eat in the field. And they’re different from tarts, which lack top crusts and are cooked in a shallow pan.
