I really like this recipe because these hand pies look so cute! The great thing is that they are super easy to make!
Refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
Fill with nutella, and bake.
Serve with powdered sugar!
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 cups sticks of butter cut into cubes
1/4 cup water - cold
2 tablespoons nutella
1 tablespoon milk
1 egg yolk - egg wash
Whisk the flour, sugar, salt together. Then add in butter and with a desk scraper cut in the butter until the lumps are the size of peas. Slowly add the water and knead for 3 minutes.
Roll the dough into a rectangle 1/3" thick and fold the dough into thirds and repeat 2 more times. Wrap the dough in plastic and rest for 1/2 hour.
Meanwhile, make nutella mixture by mixing together nutella and milk.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll the dough out 1/4" thick, and with an elephant (See note below for fishes) cookie cutter cut 2 out. Fill with nutella - make sure you put a LOT! 😋 Place in a baking sheet and crease the edges, add egg wash and bake for 23 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
