I don’t know why I’ve never made hand pies until today. They rock my world and they’re perfectly portioned!
Of all the fruit pies, blueberry is my favorite. Hence, why I made them into hand pies.
I’d love to know what your favorite fruit pie is!
An added bonus of hand pies is that they’re great for traveling! Hello, breakfast on the go.
Speaking of traveling…
I will be attending Mixed Conference this weekend with McCormick! McCormick is hosting a session highlighting ways to use flavor and color in baking – from easy ideas for everyday to more elaborate ideas for special occasions and I couldn’t be more excited!
I’ve never been to Mixed Conference, but I have a feeling I’m going to love it, especially since Paula (bell’alimento) and Susan (Doughmesstic) organized the entire thing! It’s head at the lodge that the classic movie, Dirty Dancing, was filmed in Virginia. So cool!
And since tomorrow is my birthday and Friday is my husband and my anniversary, he and Liam are coming to the conference with me! We’re making it a family celebration weekend with McCormick and Mixed!
