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.
