My easy hand pies are now some of the most popular recipes on my blog. Not only are people making them, but they are sharing photos and stories with me too! I love it.

It’s seriously one of the best parts of blogging, to see and hear from people about what they are cooking in their kitchen.

For me, growing up, we used to eat those NASTY Hostess cherry hand pies. You know the ones I’m talking about right? About one zillion calories. They taste good(ish) while you’re eating them, and then you feel sick later, haha!

My hand pies are smaller. About two bites and you’re done (unless of course you keep going back for more).

And they are incredibly easy because they are baked, NOT fried. I also cheat and use refrigerated pie crust and canned pie filling. Don’t be hating on me okay?

Sometimes a girl needs a few tricks up her sleeve to get a quick dessert on the table for a crowd. If you prefer to make your own crust and filling, please do! Just don’t judge the rest of us who ask Pillsbury and Lucky Leaf to help out 🙂

Today’s combo is delicious. I used a blueberry filling and glazed them with a sweet lemon glaze! Such a refreshing combination, if I do say so myself.

But here’s the question….what’s YOUR favorite flavor? Is it my first love, the Apple Hand Pie?

I’ve got you covered with a Cherry Hand Pie, Pumpkin Hand Pie, and even a S’mores Hand Pie. And, for dinner, how about we tackle these savory Pepperoni Pizza Hand Pies, mkay?

All it takes is 30 minutes to prepare these Blueberry Lemon Hand Pies with their flaky crust and citrus glaze!

Ingredients

  • 2 boxes (14.1 oz each) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 can (21 oz) blueberry pie filling
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pie crusts from package and allow to come to room temperature while you prepare filling.
  2. Dump pie filling in a shallow bowl and add lemon zest. Mix until blended. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop, drop blueberry 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.
  5. 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.
  6. While pies are baking, whisk together the powdered sugar and lemon juice 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). ENJOY!

  1. Do you have a tool that cuts out the shape of the pie and seals it? I used to have a donut shop and we made pies in it also like that and I had a tool to seal them but I haven’t been able to find one online .

  2. Great idea. Can you clarify on qty? Directions indicate you would get 12 pies but the nutritional breakdown indicates 24. Thanks.

  3. I have often wonder what a hand pie was, now I know, we call them a fruit turnover, normally you only ever see Apple or apricot turnover in the shops and every so often a cherry and custard or something that is supposed to resemble that. Any way it’s made me think of all the GORGEOUS summer fruits you could turn into your Gorgeous hands pies and that beautiful tangy icing. We have pastry sheet blocks 6 12×12″ sheets frozen packs of Puff or Shortcrust, very handy to have in the freezer, I have recently frozen a bunch of different stone fruits at the end of our summer. These cute hand pies will be easy to fill with and freeze that way something sweet will always be on hand… you asked what was our favourite was l reackon a combo of Raspberry and yellow peach or a Peacharine with Homemade Mascarpone.. Thankyou I love yourpage and will now go back and sign up.. Goodnight Lindi???????????

  4. Hi Aimee! Love love love these super yummy! Making them for my daughters wedding in August. Is there a way you have discovered to keeping them fresh for a few days?  

    1. They really are best the first day or two….after that the pie crust loses it’s texture, unfortunately.
