Total Time55 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 Hand Pies
Calories: 110kcal


  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato pureed
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free spiced rum
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 recipe Galette & Hand Pie Dough
  • 1 large egg white


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a baking sheet on the bottom rack and allow it to heat up in the oven.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the sweet potato puree, brown sugar, rum, spices, and salt. Set aside.
  • Roll out the dough on a sheet of parchment and cut out 6-inch circles (a small bowl works well as a cutter). Refrigerate the cut-out dough for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and spoon 2 tablespoons of filling onto a circle of dough. Gently fold the circle in half. Use a fork to seal or pinch with your fingers. Repeat with the remaining dough. Gently score the top of each hand pie.
  • Brush with the egg white and place hand pies onto the hot baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool. Can be served warm or at room temperature.
