Strawberry Hand Pies

This post was supposed to be blueberry hand pies for Seasonal Potluck, but blueberries were $4.99 and strawberries were only 88 cents, and I just couldn’t resist the sale. So here we are, strawberry hand pies. I get kind of nostalgic when I see these. My mom used to shop at the wonder bread discount store when we were kids, and we always had a hostess snack in our lunch every day. Rarely were we allowed to have the hand pies (I think my mom thought they were just too much), but every once in a while, they’d go on super sale and my mom would cave and buy them for us. (now you know where I get it from) I’m sure my hand pies are much “healthier” in that they don’t have crap tons of artificial sugars and preservatives. (Disclaimer: I am still not calling these health food by any means) If only my mom could have baked these fresh for us every day!

    You know your Mom never baked anything that wasn’t involved in a school function or a holiday, so you had to find your own things to bake.
    Love, Mom
