Reviewed cherry hand pies

Jun 5, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

I've made these twice in 4 days, first cherry and then blueberry pies. I didn't double the dough recipe, but I used Alton Brown's recipe, omitting the sugar, baking powder, doubling up on the butter and substituting lard for the vegetable shortening (1 oz) in the original recipe.

I have not made this recipe yet, but I'm basing my 5 stars on Ina's past performance. I am responding to the person who is confused about tenting with foil first or adding water first.
