These festive mini pies are filled and drizzled with white chocolate. Made with shop bought puff pastry, you could have one of these in your hands in 30 minutes flat.

I’ve seen loads of recipes for hand pies recently, but quite frankly I wanted a quick, simple way to stuff my face with little pies and couldn’t be bothered with rolling and making dough. So I made these 30 minute hand pies, with puff pastry and they are flaky, sweet, tart… amazing.
Now, I know that these look a little “Rustic” but they are homemade, so I don’t see a problem with them looking homemade. With these, you get buttery, flaky pastry and then a big hit of tart cranberry sauce and orange zest. I only used 2tbsp of sugar in this recipe, to add the smallest hint of sweetness. The other hit of sweet is from a small drizzle of melted white chocolate on top. These really do have the perfect sweet/tart balance of flavours! Man, I love cranberry and orange together! It just tastes like the Christmas season.
Just look at those layers!
I decided to use cranberry sauce in this recipe to stick to my aim of making these as easy and quick as possible! I used shop bought, but of course you can use homemade.Print
