Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup mixed vegetables (such as bell peppers, carrots, and corn)
  • 1 teaspoon dried herbs (such as oregano and thyme)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (such as cheddar or mozzarella)
  • 2 sheets of store-bought puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion and garlic until softened.
  3. Add the mixed vegetables to the skillet and cook until tender. Season with dried herbs, salt, and pepper. Remove from heat and let the mixture cool slightly.
  4. Roll out the puff pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Cut each sheet into 6 equal squares.
  5. Divide the vegetable mixture and cheese evenly among the pastry squares, spooning the filling onto one half of each square.
  6. Brush the edges of the pastry squares with egg wash and fold the other half over the filling to create triangles. Press the edges firmly to seal and then crimp with a fork.
  7. Place the hand pies on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with egg wash and make a few small slits on each pie to allow steam to escape.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the hand pies are golden brown and puffed up.
  9. Let the hand pies cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!
