Chocolate Cherry Hand Pies

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.

Handpie. [Thought Bubble: The  Williams-Sonoma Toaster Pastry Press I just bought.]


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.

Fabulous suggestion as cherry season is just around the corner! Oh, my…those look delicious. I’m from Group A, but stepped in to help out an orphan. It’s nice to meet some new bloggers. Thanks for sharing this with the SRC.

Those look delicious! My raspberry patch is just about to start producing, I think I’ll give a raspberry version a try. Great SRC pick!

Like Amy, you had me a chocolate cherry – just had my first batch of cherries for the season my absolute favorite fruit. These look beyond delicious – will have to try them free form (alas no toaster pastry press)

WOW! They look absolutely wonderful! LOVE what your pastry press does!

Those look so good. I want one right now. For Breakfast!

My hand pies don’t look that good! Maybe it’s because I don’t have a nifty new toaster pastry press. Now I want one, gorgeous and chocolate and cherry sounds decadent!

Yum! I love pie, love cherries, and I love chocolate. I have an inkling that I would definitely love them all together, these look great.

Have cherries. Have chocolate. Will have to improvise on the pie press. Will do it b/c I have to make these!

Picture perfect hand pies! Your scalloped edges are such a beautiful touch!!!!

…Probably one of the most prettiest things I’ve ever seen. And chocolate and cherries? Heck yes! Especially since BC Cherries will be coming into season any minute! yum yum yum!

Happy SRC Reveal from a fellow group C member!
