Every year since we have had our own place, we look forward to the day after thanksgiving more than thanksgiving itself. We use all the leftovers to make 3 bite mini hand pies. They are such a hit in my house, that every thanksgiving and christmas we make them the day after we cook the turkey!

Step 2: Fill Your Pies, Bake and Brush With Butter.

Using leftover thanksgiving ingredients like stuffing, turkey, taters, cranberries and gravy; fill your circles and close them with the other side. You will want to use like 1-2 tablespoons of filling for the small size in the picture. You can use some drops of water to make each side stick. Fold over each side and use a fork to seal the dough. To ensure the dough keeps shape, pop each filled pie into the freezer for a few minutes before baking. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown. brush with melted butter and garnish with herbs. best way to use thanksgiving leftovers ever!
