Gluten Free Jam Hand Pies

They're like healthy, allergen-free pop-tarts!

  • Ingredients:

    1 pound gluten free pastry dough (get the recipe or buy online)
    ½ cup HFCS-free jam (we love raspberry)
    1 large free-range egg (optional, for egg wash)
    gluten free flour (for dusting)

  • Instructions:

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

    Roll out your dough evenly on a floured surface to a thickness of approximately ⅜ inch.

    Cut your dough evenly in to your desired shape (for reference, Pop-Tarts™ are about 3 by 5 inches). We made ours in square shapes, but be creative – check out these lovely heart-shaped hand pies!

    With a fork, poke holes into half of your shapes (to allow air to escape while baking – or get creative and cut out designs!)

    On the shapes that you did not poke holes into, evenly spread your jam beginning in the center. Leave about ¼inch around the edge.

    Place a “holey” piece on top of the jam, and use a fork to crimp the edges.

    If desired, use an egg wash over the top of your pastry. Whip your egg in a bowl and use a brush to spread it evenly over the top of each pastry (this simply makes the outside “shiny” and does not affect the taste – it is completely optional so leave off for an egg-free/vegan treat).

    Carefully place your pastries on the baking sheets, spread evenly.

    Bake in a preheated 400°F for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.

    Remove from baking sheets and allow to cool (baked jam is HOT).

    Frost with your favorite icing glaze and healthy sprinkles for the perfect finishing touch.

    Serve & Enjoy! Happy Baking!
