Game Day Dessert Recipe - Football Hand Pies

If you love cute food – and SWEETS – as much as I do, then this one’s for you, my friend! These game day inspired Peanut Butter & Chocolate “Pigskin” Pies are sure to be a hit with fans of all ages at your next game day get-together. I filled them with chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups here, but you can really use any type of pie filling that you (or the party guest of honor) especially loves!

The “secret weapon” in this recipe is a tinted egg wash that makes the perfectly baked pie crusts turn a darker shade of brown. It also makes the (untinted pie crust) “football laces” pop!  Click here for the full recipe over on Krusteaz.com.

I also experimented with sprinkling sugar on some of the pies before baking them (as shown above). Sprinkling sugar on top does give the baked pies a different sort of texture, so it’s all about personal preference! If you like a bit of extra sweetness but prefer the non-sugared tops, just sprinkle the sugar on the inside instead. ;)
