Jam Filled Hand Pies by Not Derby Pie
If you read Coconut & Lime you know I have a serious addiction to canning. I make tons of jam and pickles each year and have a whole free standing cabinet in my already cramped dining room devoted to what I can. What you might not know is that I don't actually eat jam that much. I don't eat it on toast, don't eat PB & J(am) sandwiches and while I like the idea of it swirled into yogurt, I generally get those Fage yogurt cups with the fruit well at Costco and eat those instead. But I like to make jam. A lot. So what I do is search for non sandwich, non yogurt and non toast ways to use up what seems like the billion of jars of jam I'm hoarding.
Enter the jam filled hand pie. Perfectly sized for one, and as Rivka says, no worries about runny filling or soggy crusts, jam hand pies are the solution to my problem. I bet they freeze well too.
