This is the time of year when we walk into the produce section of our local grocery store only to find a very limited fruit selection.
Basically, our choices consist of citrus, berries, apples, and bananas; maybe cherries if we’re lucky.
Not necessarily a bad thing I know. Especially, if you are as fond of berries as I am, blackberries and strawberries especially.
With that in mind, I thought I would share this quick and super easy recipe for mixed berry hand pies. It’s ‘super easy’ because I took a shortcut and used store-bought puff pastry dough (hehe).
If you aren’t the least intimidated by puff pastry and have a little time to spare, I’d say definitely give it a shot. Here is a great traditional puff pastry recipe and here is a vegan option as well.
Also if you know me personally, you know I’m never above adding a little kick to my desserts and pastries. So to this particular recipe, I added a tablespoon of Grand Marnier to the berry mixture. Totally optional though if you aren’t into that sort of thing.
