  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce
  • blue cheese dressing for dipping

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except blue cheese. Mix together with your hands (go ahead, get a little dirty!) and roll into meatballs (makes about 40 appetizer sized balls).
  • Place in a single layer on an oven-safe baking pan or dish, and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes (until centers are no longer pink).

Ingredients

  • Peanut butter we used Jif Creamy Peanut Butter
  • Jam or Jelly we used Smucker’s Strawberry Jam
  • 1 Batch or tube of crescent dough
  • 1 Egg optional

Instructions

  • Spread crescent dough onto a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Gently slice it into eight rectangles (I used a pizza cutter).
  • Place a dollop of peanut butter, and a dollop of jam in the center of each rectangle, then fold each rectangle in half making sure all of the peanut butter and jelly stays in the center.
  • Using a fork, firmly push the edges of the pie together. Make sure to push hard as you don’t want the filling to ooze out.
  • Whisk the egg in a small bowl, until well scrambled. Using a basting brush, lightly paint each hand pie with egg.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until starting to turn golden brown.
  • Enjoy hot or cold!
