Severed Hand Pie

 On Halloween serve a treat that will make them scream with delight. A delicious cherry pie straight out of a horror movie. This fun and easy recipe is frighteningly simple to make with only three ingredients. So, give yourself an extra hand in the kitchen and give your friends and family a scary good dessert they’ll never forget.


 2 14.1 oz packages Pie crust

 3/4 cup Canned cherry pie filling

1 Large egg, lightly beaten



Preheat oven to 425°F. While the oven is heating up, trace your hand on a piece of cardboard and cut it out to create a templet for the pie crust.  With that done, unroll one pie crust onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then, use the cardboard templet to cut two hands from pie crust, discarding the scraps. Take a silicone brush and brush the edges and fingers of one dough hand with a beaten egg. Spoon three tablespoons pie filling in center of hand before placing the second dough hand on top, pressing the edges and fingers together to seal. Using a fork, crimp the edges around base of hand, and then if desired, use a paring knife to score knuckles and fingernails on each finger. Brush the surface of hand lightly with beaten egg and place in the oven.

Bake at 425° until golden brown, approximately 16 to 18 minutes, shielding edges and fingers as needed to prevent over browning (filling may ooze slightly). Allow the pie to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before either serving it warm, or gently transfer it to a cooling rack to cool completely. Then, watch as everyone bites the hand that feeds them with a smile on their faces.


Each pie serves 4
