Mini Nutella Hand Pies

With Thanksgiving and the winter holidays quickly approaching, you’re bound to need some quick and easy recipes to bring along to parties or put out for your guests. You’ll also probably have lots of extra materials around in the mix of it all! I already do, and with such a hectic last few weeks (nothing worse than car trouble, guys!), I didn’t have a lot of time to put together a fancy dish to share (but seriously, don’t worry– real pies and deliciousness are soon to come!)

This easy last minute treat is seriously so delicious that you’ll have people begging for your recipe, if you can even call it that! :)
For Mini Nutella Hand Pies, you will need:
1 refrigerated pie crust
1 jar of Nutella
Powdered sugar, for sprinkling

Pre-heat your oven to 350.  Using a medium sized cookie cutter (2-3 inches,) cut out circles from your rolled out dough.  With the scraps, re-roll the dough out to cut additional circles– but be sure you roll it thin enough!  Scoop about 1 tsp, maybe a bit less, of Nutella towards the front of the circle.  Fold the back of the circle over, and press the edges together using a fork (this will both seal the pies and give them a cute design).  Poke holes in the top of the pie with the fork (again for cuteness, but this will also stop your dough from bubbling!)
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown and remove from oven.  Sift powdered sugar over the tops, and that’s it!  Truly one of the easiest things I make every year, and literally never disappoint.  Enjoy!
