I am still searching for the perfect tomato pie. This one was delicious, but still a little rich because of the buttery crust. The pepper jack cheese gave it a little extra spice which was good. Also, the corn adds another touch of summer flavor.
Tomato Hand Pies
For the Crust:
See basil parmesan crust or use butter pastry crust. Roll out crust and cut circles using a 5 inch circle (I used a cereal bowl).
For the filling:
1 small onion chopped
2 tomatoes seeded and chopped
2 cups fresh or frozen corn
1/2 cup chopped basil
1 8 oz block pepper jack cheese cubed
Preheat oven 375 degrees. Sautee onion until tender. Add tomatoes, corn, basil. Cook for about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and spoon into a bowl. Add cheese and stir. Spoon filling onto dough and place another round circle on top. Pinch edges together with a fork. Place on a cooking sheet and bake about 30-45 minutes. Makes about 6 hand pies.
