This is our second batch of berry hand pies. The first one was tasteful too since the ingredients were exactly the same but the idea really needed an update. The size and filling too liquid wept for correction.

The first batch had the same fruit filling but this time I added corn starch to make the filling firmer. So, one question pops out:

How do I make my pie less watery?

You can precook the filling to reduce water content or make simple lattice on the top like I do whenever making Lattice Apple Pie ( link ). http://www.2pots2cook.com/2016/01/28/lattice-apple-pie/

The other solution is to sprinkle the bottom dough with corn starch and sugar mixture to avoid leaking when making homemade fruit pies or galettes .

If you have fresh berries or any fruits to use, making a jam or pie filling is the best you can do except eating them fresh, of course.

So, after I made Forest Berries Crepes Salad , stuffed with fresh forest fruits, the best use of leftovers was to make hand pie recipe. We both enjoy crust, both of us!
