  1. These are beautiful little hand pies! I love their rustic charm and electric red drippings. Sounds like a fun event! I get super nervous when people are expecting something delicious from me, too. My husband just informed me that my food blog secret is “out” at his work and they have expectations for a potluck coming up. Oh boy!

  2. These looks scrumptious and all the better for their realness! I am going to pin this recipe for sure. The supper sounds like so much fun. I am totally jealous.

  3. I am so jealous of all you ladies who were able to meet up. And I love the “rustic” look- I assumed that’s what you were going for!

  4. What a lovely post, Elizabeth! With my never-ending supply of pie fails, I don’t even call my desserts pies anymore. I am known for whipping up a delicious pandowdy, grunt or slump. But your hand pies are gorgeous!

  5. These look delicious! I look forward to berry season every year and eat tons of blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries. I’m passing this on to my baker husband to add to his list! And yeah, super jealous of Blogstar supper!

  6. Ooooh, the rustic pies look delicious! I find your creation far more interesting than picture perfect pockets :) Blogstar Supper sounds like such a great event – it was fun to read your take on it!

  7. As someone who was lucky enough to eat/inhale one of these lovelies I can personally attest to their total deliciousness – making! :)

  8. Gorgeous photos, and the pies sound delicious as well. Strawberries and basil are such a good combo, love it. Wish I had one of those right now!

  9. Aw man, wish we’d had THAT at the bake sale yesterday. Would’ve bought like, a dozen, completely serious. :-)

    hello! i made these today. SO AMAZING. my husband loves them. one thing though, for the filling ingredients, it says lemon zest, but in the instructions for the filling it says to combine the ingredients plus salt, and i don’t see salt in the filling ingredients, but lemon zest. so i assumed that’s what you meant and didn’t put salt in the filling, but i did put the zest of a lemon. is that right? they came out good that way, but just wanted to make sure for next time i make them!
