Hot cross bun & Biscoff hand pies




This Easter transform your leftover hot cross buns and a few pantry staples into impressive pear & Biscoff hand pies. Cooked in a pie maker, these sweet treats are a fragrant combination of fruity hot cross buns, caramelised Biscoff spread and tender canned pears. Dust with icing sugar and serve warm with ice cream for the perfect seasonal snack.




Cut hot cross buns in half horizontally. Using a rolling pin, gently roll bases until 5mm thick. Reserve bun tops.


Line ungreased holes of a 4-hole (1/3-cup/80ml) pie maker with bun bases, pressing into base and side of holes. Do not preheat pie maker.


Spoon 1 tablespoon of the spread into each base. Arrange 3 pear slices over the base. Sprinkle each with a teaspoon of almond meal. Top with bun tops. Close lid; cook for 5 minutes or until toasted and heated through.


Transfer pies to a wire rack, repeat with remaining bun bases, Biscoff spread, pears and almond meal.


Serve dusted with icing sugar.

Biscoff crunchy spread is a thick caramel spread with fine crumbs of delicious caramel biscuit through it and is available in most supermarkets.
