Cherry Hand Pies

30 Mins
Potato Bread
Made With
Potato Bread


1 Loaf Martin’s Potato Bread (14 slices)

1 21-oz. Can Cherry Pie Filling

3 Tablespoons Melted Butter

  Decorative Sugar Crystals

1/4 Cup Powdered Sugar

1 Splash Of Milk

Serves: 14


Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Using a rolling pin, flatten each slice of potato bread except the end pieces. (Save these to use for another recipe, like croutons!)

Step 3

Place 1 tablespoon of cherry pie filling in the center of each flattened slice of bread – a good measure is about 5 cherries worth.

Step 4

Being careful not to squish out the filling, fold the bread horizontally over the filling, using a fork to crimp the edges together. Repeat with remaining slices of bread.

Step 5

Place hand pies onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cut three slits into the top of each hand pie, then brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with sugar crystals.

Step 6

Bake for 5-7 minutes or until slightly golden and a little toasted. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Step 7

Prepare icing by combining the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until it reaches the proper consistency. When lifted with a spoon, the glaze should fall evenly in a thin ribbon.

Step 8

Drizzle the glaze over each of the hand pies; let harden slightly.

Step 9

Enjoy! (Tip: These make great on-the-go snacks for traveling, bike rides, or picnics! You can also make ahead of time and freeze them.)
