This was my first attempt at making homemade pastry dough, and I used this recipe (I used this same recipe for the filling, too…and included the almond extract). Let’s just say pastry dough is insanely easy to make. It was almost amusing, considering how intimidated I was before beginning the process. I may never buy store-bought pastry dough again!
As a bonus, my Dad loved these hand pies (the scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side didn’t hurt, either).
Have you ever made pastry dough from scratch before?
