Looking to knock it outta the park this Thanksgiving? Looking to impress some family + friends with your culinary prowess? Just looking to mix up the menu a bit this year? Well, I employe you, try this recipe out.
We dreamt up Butternut Squash Hand Pies back in 2011 and they’ve been a mainstay at holiday feasts ever since. Isa Chandra Moskowitz wrote the recipe up again back at the beginning of 2012 with her PPK100 and we thought we’d dredge it up again in case anyone’s looking for an exciting last-minute addition to the menu.
The crust on these is rich + flaky, the filling savory + sweet, and—though it’s not mentioned in the original recipe—if you pair it with a chipotle-mayo dipping sauce, the combination of flavors is pretty unbeatable. Just grab a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce from the ‘international’ aisle at your local supermarket and mix a couple tablespoons of the sauce with your favorite vegan mayo. We like to pulverize a pepper or two to mix in too, but we like it hot.
Give it a go—we promise you’ll be glad you did.
