These Mummy berry hand pies make the most adorable Halloween treats. Using only a handful of ingredients, they couldn’t be easier and they’ll be a sure hit!

Halloween mummy berry handpies

OK guys, let’s talk about these hand pies for a minute. Have you ever seen anything so adorable? I made these pies filled with berry preserves/jam a while ago and they were such a hit with my kids, I knew I had to put a Halloween-spin on them.

Last year I made these mummies-in-a-blanket and because I thought they were just too cute, thought I would steal the idea for this hand pie recipe. All you need is 3 ingredients (I’m not counting the googly eyes since they are optional) and a few minutes to throw these together. They make perfect Halloween treats, would be great in a lunchbox and are just delicious for dessert served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Can you freeze hand pies?

Definitely. Because dough/pastry freezes so well, these hand pies are an ideal freezer treat. Assemble the hand pies all the way then freeze in on a parchment-lined baking sheet until frozen solid before transferring to a freezer-proof container. Before baking, brush with egg and pop in the oven and bake from frozen. Easy peasy!

How long do you bake hand pies?

Because the filling should need no cooking, hand pies only take 10-15 minutes to bake. When the pastry is crisp and golden brown the hand pies should be ready to be removed from the oven. You can fill hand pies with absolutely anything so apple pie filling, cherry, pumpkin, peach and berries all work well.

      They are made of fondant/modelling paste. But you can buy googly eyes from many baking supply stores.

    I tested these tonight as I want to make them for my kids’ Halloween party at school this week and they are SO GOOD. The kids ate ALL of them and I doubled the recipe!

    My kids loved these. I didn’t have the little eyes but they loved the jam with the pastry.

      The eyes are festive but definitely not a must. So glad your kiddos liked this.
