Palm-sized and picnic-ready hand pies
are all the rage this summer. We have a feeling that eating these pies might be slightly more enjoyable than assembling a whole batch of them. These lattice, apple, and star pie molds from Williams-Sonoma might help even things out!
With each of these molds, it looks like you use the outside as a cookie-cutter and the inside for filling and pressing the pies closed. The inside has a smooth depression so we can get the maximum filling into hand pie, which definitely gets our seal of approval!
We do wonder how easy or hard it is to position the pieces of pie dough in the mold and keep them aligned while you press. This seems like it should make the whole process easier and less messy, but it might be a different story in practice.
Still, for between $5 and $10 each, these molds might be well worth the gamble!
