Today is the third Monday of the month.  Woohoo!  Why the excitement?  Well, it is The Secret Recipe Club reveal day for Group C, of course.  In fact, I thought today would never get here! This month has seemed especially long between reveals because I actually baked way ahead of time…for once. Now that today is here, I am super excited.

Once I received Debbi’s email, I knew I was in for a fantastic evening of scrolling through Christina’s blog, Oven Adventures. We share the same name, so of course her posts would prove amazing. I was right! I became wonderfully overwhelmed by the plethora of choices.  First, I went right to the Brown Butter Banana Monkey Bread with a Brown Sugar because (confession alert) I have never made Monkey Bread.  I know! I know!  Shameful.

However, as we walk in the height of strawberry season, the Strawberry Key Lime Cake looked tasty. But, so did the Sprinkle Cookie Sticks, the White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse in a Meringue Nests, and the 2-bite S’more Hand Pies.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

Then, it hit me.

Chocolate.  Cherry.

Decision made!

After all was said and done, and I had long forgotten the about the Gluten-Free Cherry Pop Tarts I made last summer, these hand pies rocked! Seriously – look at that [↓] flakiness! The dough was rolled out perfectly and the cherry filling was spot on.

Next time, I will make them without the chocolate, so I can indulge.  As for these, one of my favorite gals at work enjoyed the hand pies with her husband. He was a happy man.
