Hi Friends! I was wanting a little dessert snack and I was short on time (and energy) as I attended BlogHer this weekend. BlogHer is a blogging and writing conference that was in Los Angeles this weekend.

I was only able to attend part of the time, but I did enjoy listening to the speakers, and meeting Jennie Garth was especially fun. She is so sweet in real life and we even got a picture together. She was sharing her stories of traveling in an RV with her family.

Empanadas are a stuffed pastry, kind of like a little hand pie. I usually make empanadas as appetizers, but once in awhile these dessert empanadas make a great little dessert. When they are freshly baked, they are rolled in sugar for a tasty dessert or lunch box treat.

A delicious hand-held dessert that is made with fresh strawberries and is only 4 ingredients!


  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries - cleaned, stems removed, drained and sliced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 ready to bake pie crusts dough circles (14.1 oz package)

    6. Using a 3 1/2" - 4" round cookie cutter, cut out circles from a refrigerated pie crust.
