Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat; set aside.

  • In a large bowl, mix together fruit, sugar, orange zest and juice, salt, and cornstarch; mix until well combined. Set fruit mixture aside.

  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out one piece of dough to a 16-by-11-inch rectangle. Trim to 15-by-10 inches. Cut into six 5-inch squares. With a dry pastry brush, sweep off excess flour. Working with one square at a time, place 2 tablespoons of reserved fruit mixture in the center. Brush two connecting edges with beaten egg and fold on the diagonal over the filling, pressing to seal. Repeat process with remaining squares.

  • Repeat entire process with remaining pate brisee. Place hand pies on prepared baking sheet. Brush pies with remaining egg wash and sprinkle with sanding sugar. Using a pair of clean scissors, snip the center of one side of each hand pie to allow steam to escape.

  • Transfer baking sheets to oven and bake until crusts are golden brown and filling is bubbling, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack. Serve warm.

I wish it had been clearer that you need to divide the dough in two. That should have been the start of the instructions............but overall I thought it was a good. I would add sugar to the dough as a I like a slightly sweeter dough.

Delicious! if your fruits are not extremely ripe or the best quality, add a bit of sugar as mine were a little too tart.....but still delicious!

This recipe is similar to the Mixed Berry Turnovers recipe in Everyday Food May 2008. Be aware that there are differences. I followed this one with great results. If you wish to have the mixed berries instead, just use 2 cups of those.

Made 1/2 peach and 1/2 strawberry. Dough a little too salty for us but still good. Do not prep fruit too far in advance and would not suggest adding the liquid from. Also found that 1 egg was plenty for the wash. Try these...won't be sorry :)

The recipe fr the dough is listed above as Pate Brisee...click on it to be taken to that page. And if anyone has seen the recipe for John's Mixed Berry Turnovers in the May 2008 issue of Everyday Food, can you tell me why the big temperature difference??

Can you please tell me how you would freeze and reheat these? I would love to make a big batch with my fall fruit.
