Fruit Patties


Crust:  Makes enough crust for six (6) hand pies.

1½ cups all-purpose flour

½ tsp. of sugar

¼ tsp. of kosher salt

½ cup (1 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into ½” pieces

 

Pulse flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor.  Add butter; pulse until the texture of very coarse meal.  Add ¼ cup ice water; pulse adding more water if dry, until dough comes together in clumps.  Form into a square, wrap in plastic, and chill until firm, about 2 hours.

 

Filling:  Arawak Farm Spicy Fruit Spread (your choice)

  

Bake: 

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes before rolling out.  Roll dough into a 15”x12” rectangle, then cut into six (6) smaller rectangles.  Brush the edges with water.
  • Spoon your choice of filling onto half of each rectangle, leaving the edges clear.
  • Fold the dough over the filling and press down firmly on the edges with fingers or a fork to seal.  Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, brush with an egg wash and sprinkle with raw sugar.
  • Bake hand pies for 35-40 minutes, rotating baking sheet halfway through, until juices are bubbling and pastry is golden brown.  Transfer to a wire rack.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
