*Cherry Hand Pies

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the chopped cherries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon zest and a pinch of salt.
  • Using a  4″ circle pastry cutter, cut the prepared pie crusts into circles (you will need 16 total, so make sure you cut smart!)
  • Place a spoonful of the filling in the center of 8 of the circles.
  • Place the remaining circles on the top of the filling.
  • Use a fork to press the edges of the pie crusts together to seal the filling in.
  • Whisk together the egg and the water to form an egg wash and then brush over each hand pie.
  • Pierce with a knife to allow steam to escape.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes.

*Mini Baked Corndog Muffins

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Cut the hot dogs into 1″ pieces.
  • Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, buttermilk, baking soda, cornmeal, flour and salt.
  • Spoon 1 TBSP of batter into each mini muffin well and place a hot dog piece in the middle of each.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat with remaining batter (you should get enough for about 48 mini corn dog muffins).

Serve with watermelon and corn on the cob.
