Why These Hand Pies are Best

Hand pies have all the great taste of a slice of homemade pie. Only you don’t need a fork—or even a plate.

  • This recipe brings together two favorite pie fillings for a juicy mixed berry flavor.
  • Oven baked for a perfect golden brown crust.
  • Serve them with a sweet glaze or a crackly sugar coating.
  • The perfect portable dessert.
  • Easy to make, take and serve!

Ingredient Notes

Another reason to love Berry Hand Pies? You only need a couple ingredients for the pies themselves.

Refrigerated pie crust – You can use a homemade crust if preferred, but you can’t beat the convenience of the premade crusts.

Pie Filling – I use half of a can each of strawberry and blueberry pie filling.

Egg white – It’s brushed over the pies before baking to help the crust turn golden brown.

Tips and Tricks

After filling and baking your hand pies, you have two options. You can dunk them in glaze or coat them with sugar crystals. Both are delicious, so I suggest you make one batch of each!

  • For sugar coated hand pies: Brush the baked pies with melted butter while they’re still warm. Then dunk the hand pies immediately into a bowl of granulated sugar.
  • For glazed hand pies: Whisk together powdered sugar and milk to form a simple icing. Use a fork to drop the warm hand pies into the glaze.
  • After adding the glaze or the sugar coating, make sure to let your hand pies cool completely before eating. The filling will be very hot when the pies first come out of the oven. You don’t want to burn the roof of your mouth!
  • I use these round cutters for cutting the pie crust into even circles.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make this recipe with homemade pie filling? How much do I need?

Of course! Berry Hand Pies are a wonderful way to enjoy your favorite homemade pie fillings. You will need one cup of each type of homemade filling to replace the canned filling in this recipe.

What substitutions can I make?

Try substituting raspberry pie filling for either the strawberry or blueberry for a tangy twist. Blackberry filling would be delicious too!

Store these Berry Hand Pies in an airtight container at room temperature. Or freeze them for longer storage! Frozen hand pies stay good for up to 3 months.

How many hand pies does this recipe make?

This recipe makes about 2 dozen hand pies. You may need to reroll the crust once or twice to get 6 circles from each one.

Ingredients

For the hand pies:

  • 2 boxes (14.1 ounce each) refrigerated pie crust
  • ½ can (21 ounce) blueberry pie filling
  • ½ can (21 ounce) strawberry pie filling
  • 1 egg white, beaten

For the glaze:

  • 2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup milk

For the sugar coating:

  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 ¼ cup granulated sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pie crusts from package and allow to come to room temperature.
  2. Unroll pie crusts and cut 6 circles from each crust using a 4-inch biscuit cutter. You may have to re-roll the scraps to get the 6th circle.
  3. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, drop half a scoop of blueberry pie filling and half a scoop of strawberry pie filling into center of each pie crust circle. Fold in half and pinch edges completely. Fold pinched edges over and press with the tines of a fork to seal. Poke hand pie with fork once, to prevent bursting.
  4. Beat egg white in a small bowl until frothy. Brush over the tops of each hand pie. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet (1 inch apart) for about 15 minutes, until browned.
  5. For glazed hand pies, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Remove cooked pies from baking sheet and drop (while warm) into glaze, coating it completely. I use two forks to flip it in the glaze and remove carefully. Return to parchment paper and allow to set (about 5 minutes).
  6. For the sugar coated hand pies, brush the warm hand pies with melted butter and dunk into a bowl with the granulated sugar. Place on parchment paper to cool. ENJOY!
