mirabelle hand pies.

more fresh fruit from the family garden!
our large mirabelle tree has gifted us with sweet, ripe, yellow mini-plums.
they are juicy and sweet.
and just the perfect size to pop in your mouth.
the skin. lush yellow. with sun-kissed touches of red.

i just had to bake something out of them as well.
this time i went for the classic pâte brisée recipe. 
i rolled out the dough, cut it into squares and folded the tips inwards.
so you can see the pretty yellow fruit. 
so it's not your typical hand pie. 

for your mirabelles: cut and slice your fruit.
add sugar, some cornstarch and some lemon zest.

egg-wash your pie and sprinkle with granulated sugar. 
a dash of cinnamon also goes very well with this recipe.

a joy to eat while they are still warm.

serve with home-made ice cream.
