Mini Curry Hand Pies

So something kind of awesome happened yesterday.

And I’m not talking about the election of the new Pope.*

A Kickstarter for a Veronica Mars movie got completely funded in less than 12 hours.

The goal was $2 million.

How crazy yet amazing is that?

Since I’m a fan of the show, I thought that was pretty cool.

But there are a lot of people who are totally against this non-traditional way of funding a movie.

To those people, well, here’s what Amanda Palmer (whose TED Talk about The Art of Asking is phenomenal) had to say:

I absolutely agree with her.

Mini Curry Hand Pies


2 unbaked pie crusts (homemade or store-bought)

½ cup leftover curry (I used a version of this Japanese curry)

⅓ cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)


  1. On a lightly floured surface, gently roll out pie crusts to just slightly bigger than they were packaged. Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, cut dough into 3-inch rounds.
  2. Place 1- 1 ½ teaspoons of curry onto a dough round. Sprinkle curry with cheese. Fold dough over the filling and crimp the edges together, using the tines of a fork. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  3. Place mini hand pies onto a parchment lined baking sheet and put in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
  4. While pies are in the refrigerator, preheat oven to 425⁰F.
  5. Remove pies from refrigerator. Brush milk over pies and poke a few holes in the tops of the pies.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Enjoy!

* I know electing a new Pope is a pretty serious thing, but all I could think of was a scene from Friends.
Chandler: Take off their hats!
Phoebe: Popes into a Volkswagen! I love that joke!
