When I was little, my sister and I liked to watch Woody Woodpecker on tv. One night, my mom wanted us to help make dinner...pies made from canned biscuits and canned beef hash (she did cook regular food too! :) ) We didn't want to stop watching Woody Woodpecker, so she said they were beetle pies for Woody to eat. That did it. Hand pies have been know by that name ever since.
Tonight I made some Irish hand pies from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food. Hamburger, onion and potato flavored with a little tomato paste, thyme and worcestershire sauce. The recipe called for pie crust squares, but I used Grands biscuits that I rolled out. Just like old times :)
