Piña Colada Hand Pies
These scrumptious Piña Colada hand pies will make you think of sun, sand and relaxation with the tropical flavors of pineapple, coconut and rum. Enjoy!
Sift flour and salt together in medium bowl.
Add coconut oil and blend with a pastry cutter or fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in just enough water until dough holds together. Do not overwork.
Shape dough into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 20-30 minutes. Do not overchill as the coconut oil will harden making the dough difficult to roll out.
While the dough is chilling, add pineapple, lime juice and sugar to a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Turn heat down to low-medium and simmer until warm and juicy, about 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon out about ½ cup of the juice from the pan into a bowl. Stir cornstarch into the juice until smooth.
Bring pot of pineapple back to a simmer and slowly pour in the cornstarch mixture. Stir mixture until thickened, about 2-5 minutes.
Remove from heat, stir in coconut and rum extract and set aside.
Assemble the pies
Preheat oven to 350°. Lay chilled pie dough on a floured surface and roll out to ¼ inch thickness. Cut 4-inch diameter circles. Fill the center of one circle with filling and moisten edges with water. Cover with a second circle of dough, and pinch to seal.
Transfer pie to a parchment-lined cookie sheet and brush with milk or egg to create a shiny and golden finish. Cut slits in the top to allow steam to escape while baking. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
Bake at 350° for 25-35 minutes, turning baking sheet around once during baking. Pie bottoms should be a golden brown.
Remove to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool for about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
