- 2 cups leftover or prepared BBQ pulled pork
- 2 packages refrigerated pie crust (4 sheets of pie crust total)
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons water, divided
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature for 15 minutes before using. Using a 4-inch round biscuit cutter, mug, or bowl, cut out rounds from the pie crust. If using a mug or bowl, do so by tracing around the mug or bowl with a paring knife. Each crust should yield 4 rounds, with scraps leftover. Place two tablespoons of water in a small bowl near your work surface.
Place a heaping tablespoon of the BBQ pulled pork in the center of each pie crust round. Trace the edge of each round with a little bit of water before folding to create a half-moon shape. Press the edges together to seal, removing the air. Use a fork to crimp the edges of the hand pies. If the edge of the pie is jagged, use a paring knife to clean it up.
Continue to use this method to make 16 hand pies. Place 8 hand pies on each baking sheet.
Combine the egg with one tablespoon of water to make an egg wash. Using a pastry brush, brush a little egg wash on each of the pies.
Bake the pies one baking sheet at a time for about 16 minutes, or until golden brown, rotating the baking sheet halfway through baking. Cool for five minutes before serving.
If desired, you may make this recipe with homemade pie dough.
