Hand Jam-pies


A favorite tea treat is make your own jam hand-pies. I like to serve items where you can make it to please your own palette.

I roll out pate brisee and cut tops and bottoms.

Set out different jams, bits of chocolate, nuts, fruit, anything you can think of. Each person takes a piece of dough and places a TBL of jam and a few pieces of fruit, chocolate, nuts in the center.

Wet edge of dough with water, using your fingers. Set another piece of dough on top and press down edges. We carved our initial into each pie, so we knew who's was who. 

Set hand-pies on parchment paper. I suggest you set cookie sheet in freezer for 1/2 hour to re-harden butter. Bake off frozen hand-pies at 375°F  for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes, that jam is really hot. Enjoy!!!

Note, I made mine with my red-wine plum jam and bits of dark chocolate, ahhh.


I am taking a few days off from blogging to spoil my man for Fathers day. I always thought the more I spoil him, the more he will spoil me :-) Plus we just had our 21 wedding anniversary. We were up half the night chatting, giggling and remembering. I can not think of a better way to celebrate, I am quite blessed xox

Well Happy Anniversary darling..

I just realized today is our anniversary,oh my gosh, I'm not very good with these things. I know Lennis forgot too.

I better get to work.

Enjoy your time cooking.


Dear Clarice,

The hand jam pies look so yummy!!! I will have to make those for my sweeties, and try making some with almond flour for me! :) Your photo is so lovely! Your teacup and saucer are beautiful! Isn't it wonderful to have such pretty dishes to use and enjoy everyday, making tea such a special occasion and every meal for that matter! I think it was a clever idea to put your initials on the hand jam pies to tell them apart!

Happy Anniversary to you and David! I am so happy you both had such a fun evening remembering all those happy years of marriage and looking forward to all the years ahead. I agree, I could not think of a better way to celebrate! Enjoy your week! I know David will love being spoiled for Father's Day!
Love you, Paula
