Spinach Hand Pies
So, we're at that point in the moving phase, where we're starting to look at pre-move bucket lists : things we want to do here, before moving to Canada.
For me, that means spending time with friends when possible. For my husband - who grew up here - it's more things like going to the State Fair, Valley Fair, etc one last time. Also: Have me create a great Spinach Hand Pies recipe. There's a great local Lebanese deli - Emily's - that makes spinach pies that he adores.
While we'd usually go for a direct replica when it comes to something like this, he decided he preferred to have a bit of fun with it, developing a custom filling. So, if you're looking for an Emily's knockoff, this is not the recipe you're looking for! (It is definitely in the same ballpark, though.)
To adjust it a bit more to my husband's tastes, there is more filling than in the source material, as well as flavour additions like kalamata olives. Ours features an egg glaze, giving the outside of the crust a bit of sheen, and a bit of bite/crunch. For a softer finished crust, skip the egg glaze.
