Nectarine Plum Hand Pies

 What better way to eat pie in the summer than just in the palm of your hand?  These combine the tart and sweet elements of these fruits with sugar and a touch of vanilla wrapped in pie crust to create a masterpiece in your mouth.

What you'll need:
1 Large Plum, diced up (pit free)
1 Large Nectarine, diced (pit free)
2 T. Sugar
1/4 t.  Vanilla
1 Pie crust (homemade, store bought, whatever floats your boat)
1 T. Butter, melted
1 T. Sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a medium bowl mix together the pieces of plum, nectarine, sugar and vanilla until coated.

2.  Roll out the pie crust into a circle.  Cut the crust pizza style into 8 pieces.  (like slices of pizza or pie)

 3.  Evenly distribute the fruit mixture onto the triangular pieces of pie crust dough.  (~1/8c each) Then gently roll up the hand pies, so they look like the above picture.
4.  Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 8 minutes.  Then take out of the oven and brush the tops with melted butter.  Sprinkle the tops with remaining sugar and bake for about 6-8 more minutes or until golden brown.
5.  Enjoy! Serve them warm or room temperature.  Try with ice cream or on a picnic!  :)
