These strawberry hand pies are so good that you just have to try them! I seriously had a hard time not eating them all by myself. They are small, but you could easily make them almost any size. I used a 4 inch cookie cutter and got seven out of a single pie crust. I kind of wish I had made more. They are made using the strawberry butter I posted yesterday. You can use your favorite pie crust or even store bought. This is my favorite. Hope you enjoy!
