Fruit Hand pies made with just 3 ingredients! Gluten free, easy, real food based.



  • [url] 3 Ingredient Gluten Free Pie Crust ∞[/url] one batch using half a loaf of gluten free bread See notes for substitutes
  • 810 ounces organic fruit pie filling (I used non-gmo Apple Pie filing with cinnamon and nutmeg)
  • butter or melted coconut oil/vegan butter for brushing
  • optional ingredients (see notes)


  1. First make sure you have your gluten free pie crust dough ready. It’s super EASY! Chill dough in fridge if you have time. About one hour.
  2. Next roll out the down using a rolling pin and parchment paper between the dough and rolling pin. Or sprinkle with gluten free flour so it doesn’t stick.
  3. Once you get it flat, about 1/4 to 1/8 inch, cut the dough in 5 to 6 inch circles. You can use a lid from a pan or tupperware lid. Do this to make about 4-5 circles.
  4. Place 1 tbsp or so of fruit pie filling in the center.
  5. Gently fold dough in half to seal the pie. Press ends together then prick edges with a fork. Place on baking tray.
  6. Brush each pie with little bit of melted butter or coconut oil.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
  8. Serve right away or cover in plastic (once cooled) and keep in fridge.
  9. Reheat in microwave before serving.


  • If you want to double recipe be sure to make two batch of the gluten free pie crust dough, then combine the two. Best to use gluten free white bread
  • If you have no time to make the dough, trying buying the pre-made gluten free dough at the store and rolling it out VERY thin. I know whole foods carries a few gluten free pre-made dough brands in the freezer section.
