Vegetarian Aussie Hand Pies:

Yield: 4 Servings

Cook Time: 1 Hr


Pie Dough:

- 2 ½ Cups Flour

- 1 Cup Butter (2 Sticks) or Earth Balance

- 1 tsp Salt

- 1 tsp Sugar

- ½ Cup Cold Water

Pie Filling:

- 1 Yellow Onion, Diced

- 3 Medium Carrots, Diced

- 3 Celery Stalks, Diced

- 5 Golden Potatoes, Diced

- 1 Garlic Clove, Minced

- 2 Tbsp Butter or Earth Balance

- 2 Tbsp Vegetable Stock

- 1 Can Cream of Potato Soup

- ¼ Cup Coconut Cream or Heavy Cream

- 1 ½ tsp Sea Salt

- 1 tsp Black Pepper

- Optional- Egg Wash: 1 Egg + 1 tsp Cold Water


1. Gather all ingredients. Prepare pie dough first.

2. First, add the flour, salt, and sugar in a stand mixer and combine. Cube the 2 sticks of butter and turn the mixer on low. Slowly add the butter cubes until the dough begins to form crumbs.

3. Next, slowly add the water and mix until a dough begins to form. Shape into a ball and then flatten into a disk shape. Wrap with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

4. While dough is refrigerating, wash and dry the vegetables. Dice the onion, carrots, celery, and golden potato, set aside. Mince the garlic, set aside.

5. Preheat the oven to 400°F. While the oven is preheating, heat a large skillet and melt the 2 Tbsp butter or Earth Balance. Sauté the onion, celery, and carrot for five minutes, and then add the potato and cook for an additional 8 minutes.

6. Add the vegetable stock and cream of potato soup. Season with salt and pepper and simmer until potatoes are soft enough to be pierced with a fork.

7. Roll out pie dough after 30 minutes and use a biscuit cutter to cut the dough into circles.

8. Place circle on a silpat lined baking sheet and scoop 1 Tbsp of filling into the center. Egg wash the edges and then place a second circle on top of the filling. Egg wash the outer and edges and then press with a fork. Cut a small “x” into the top of each pie to let them vent while cooking.

9. Bake for 25 minutes until the bottoms of the pies turn golden brown, this recipe made 12 hand pies for me, enjoy! :)


- The longer you refrigerate the dough, the easier it will be to work with!

- These are perfect for making ahead of time for work lunches or picnics :)
