Baked Goods & Sweet Treats Recipes

Nutella and Raspberry Hand Pies


I hope everyone had a spectacular weekend and a lovely Valentine’s Day (if you celebrate it). Sam and I went to Polpo in Soho for dinner and I can’t give it higher recommendations. It’s Venetian food served as sharing plates (tapas style) and it’s some of the tastiest food I’ve had in London. At very reasonable prices as well! I’ll be dreaming of the chickpea meatballs and arancini until I break down and buy their super popular cookbook which will undoubtedly be soon!

Now that I’ve discussed a delicious London treat, let me share one of my own: I’ve been on quite the pie kick lately. As with all sweet treats, my various cravings and recipes come in obsessions and then they have to be abandoned for a few months.

 Nutella and Raspberry Hand Pies

(Adpated from Wonky Wonderful)
Pie Crust Dough of your choosing (either pre-prepared or store bought. I mentioned before, my favourite pie crust recipe is this one from Smitten Kitchen.)
Raspberry Preserves
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
1 egg
Preheat your oven to 350 F.  Roll out your crust and cut into circles. (I don’t actually own a round cookie-cutter so I always use a regular pint glass as a make-shift one.)

Add one teaspoon of Nutella and one teaspoon of preserves to one out of each pair of circles.

Then mix one teaspoon of water and the egg together to make an egg wash. Brush the edges of the circle with the filling with the egg wash and then firmly place the other half on top of it. You can use a fork to crimp and seal the edges if you wish.

Obviously, if you are doing any cutouts, like the one pictured above, do it before you place it on top of the filled half. Before placing each hand pie on the baking tray, brush the tops of each with the egg wash.  Bake for about 13 minutes.

Allow them to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before removing them to a wire rack to cool completely. Whilst they are cooling add two tablespoons of hot water to your powdered sugar to make a glaze. When the pies are cooled completely, drizzle them with the glaze.

There’s just something so satisfying about a pie you can hold in your hand!

    Also, I’ve been wondering… Did y’all get a camera upgrade when I wasn’t looking? Your photos are lookin’ mighty fine these days!

    • Um yes?! Do you and Hannah want to make a trip over?

      And I did, about two weeks ago I upgraded from iphone to Canon EOS 1100. (And my next big splurge is the 50mm lens) It has been a long anticipated and exciting upgrade. Although weirdly using crap cameras for so long as helped give me a better understanding of what makes a good picture. x

      • Do I WANT to? YES YES AND YES. Why are there not free tickets raining from the sky right now?

        Aww, congrats! I’ve been noticing the change, and had been meaning to ask. I got my 50 mm lens for $100 a few years ago and it was seriously the best choice I ever made. So excited to watch your blog, and pictures, continue to grow!

  • That’s because we have a secret alliance. But seriously, thank you! x

  • Chickpea meatballs? That sounds so good! Now that, I’d want a recipe for! These hand pies look amazing but I just know I’d screw it up, lol.

    • They were vegetarian meatballs and they were one of the best things that I have ever eaten. Ever. I blend of chickpeas, spinach, ricotta and spices. SO GOOD! x

  • I am SO going to have to try these!
