Spinach Artichoke Hand Pies





My kids love anything wrapped in pastry. Phyllo dough, puff pastry, pie crust. If it's flaky and buttery I can get almost anything stuffed inside and they will gobble it up. Savory pies or tarts are a popular dinner in our house!

Today I made my favorite pie crust, I cut the dough into 4 inch circles, filled the centers with a  basic spinach artichoke dip. It's cheesy pie goodness at it's best!



To get my recipe for Spinach Artichoke Hand Pies go check out my friend Erin's blog Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts. She is away this week so a few friends and I helped her out with guest posting.

  18. I can finally catch up on all my favourite blogs! This hand pie looks in-cred-i-ble! I love anything wrapped in pastry too. In fact, I could easily just bake pastry and eat it by itself, that's how much I love it. I'm going to go and check out your guest post right now!
