Nutella and Banana Mini Hand Pies

This is one of our family's favorite flavor combinations (try a small scoop...a teaspoon or so...of Nutella with sliced bananas in your hot cereal...yum), so for a quick desert on night I made these.  Needless to say, they were a big hit...


Pie crusts-from your favorite recipe, or the dairy section of your super market :)...we used pre-made this time to make it a little easier.


Finely diced banana, one banana was plenty for us

1 egg beaten with a little water (egg wash)

How to:

1. Cut circles from your pie crust.  It's best to do this assembly line style, so cut out all the circles you can.  We used a 3-inch scalloped biscuit cutter.

2. Place a small dollop (scant teaspoon) Nutella and a few pieces of banana on one half of the circle.

3. Brush edges with egg wash, fold the opposite half of the circle over the filling and press to close. Use the tines of a fork to press around the outside edge to seal it a bit more.

4. Heat oil to 350 degrees.  Fry pies a few at a time until golden brown...only a minute or two per side--watch them they cook up quick. Remove to a paper towel to soak up excess oil.
If you prefer a quicker (and healthier) option, bake in a 350 oven until golden brown.  Allow to cool a few minutes (filling will be HOT) and enjoy!
