I didnâ€™t know this, but apparently cupcakes arenâ€™t cool anymore, hand pies are the new cupcakes.
I guess macarons and cake pops were hot for a moment, but can hand pies overthrow cupcakes to become the next hot dessert?
Frankly, Iâ€™ve become wary of cupcakes, I mean theyâ€™re cute to look at but theyâ€™re usually a hit or miss on the taste front â€“ Iâ€™ve had quite a few dry and tasteless cupcakes.
So hereâ€™s where hand pies come inâ€¦ itâ€™s a pie you can fit in your hand.
Hand pies are versatile; they come in sweet or savoury, and filling possibilities are endless.
Empanadas are hand pies, and thereâ€™s a cute little place just off Davie called House of Empanadas â€“ Iâ€™m hooked!
