Rhubarb Hand Pies
These Flaky Rhubarb Hand Pies drizzled with vanilla icing make the perfect early-summer treat. They're like grown-up pop tarts.
- 2 1/2 cups 315 grams all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup 225 grams/2 sticks cold butter, cut in 1 inch cubes
- 1/2 cup ice cold water
- 1 1/2 cups finely chopped rhubarb
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp water
Combine flour, sugar and salt in a food processor; pulse a few times. Sprinkle butter over top and pulse until butter pieces are about the size of coarse crumbs. Scatter ice water over and pulse again a few times until a shaggy dough forms.
Turn dough out onto a floured counter. Gather the dough into a cohesive lump and pat it into a disc. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight, or for at least two hours.
Preheat oven to 400º F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
Roll dough into a rectangle (approximately 16? by 11? wide). Trim edges to make straight lines. Use a knife or pastry wheel to cut dough crosswise into 6 equal strips.
Divide the rhubarb filling among the dough strips, placing it in a small pile on one end of each rectangle, then fold remaining dough over and pinch edges to seal. Use a sharp paring knife to cut two 1? slits in the tops of each pie. Transfer pies to parchment-lined baking sheet.
In a small bowl, whisk egg with 2 tsp water. Brush pies with the egg wash. Bake pies for about 25 minutes, until golden brown and filling is bubbling out.
