I thought about starting 2017 with a healthy dinner, or a smoothie recipe, or even a low sugar treat.

But then I thought, who am I kidding? These Lemon Hand Pies have been sitting here waiting to be shared since November!

If you loved my other flavors, including these Peach Hand Pies and this Berry Hand Pies and of course these Apple Hand Pies..then you’ve got to give the lemon a try!

It’s up to you how easy you want to make these. For today’s recipe I used store bought refrigerated pie crust and canned lemon pie filling. However, if you have the extra time, I highly encourage you to make this homemade lemon curd. It’s worth it!!

Unlike my other hand pie recipes, today’s recipe does not have a glaze on top. Instead I added powdered sugar, which I think pairs nicely with the sweet lemon filling!

Lemon Hand Pies

Yield: 24 hand pies

Prep Time:10 minutes

Cook Time:15 minutes

Total Time:25 minutes

Lemon Hand Pies: flaky, baked hand pies with a sweet lemon filling! Don't forget the dusting of powdered sugar on top!

Ingredients:

  • 2 boxes (14.1 oz each) refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 can (15 oz) lemon pie filling (or homemade lemon curd)
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Remove pie crusts from package and allow to come to room temperature while you prepare filling.
  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 lemon 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. Remove cooked pies from baking sheet and cool completely. Sprinkle generously with powdered sugar and enjoy. These are great refrigerated and served chilled.

    Misprint or did I miss something 2 boxes, 6 circles per roll/box = 12 but yield is 24???

  2. “2 boxes (14.1 oz each) refrigerated pie crust”
    “1 can (15 oz) lemon pie filling”

    Looks great, but you call this a recipe? 😀

    Pie crust is a short crust for England and AU. They freeze ok, tried that last weekend.

  4. These look so good! I always loved little lemon pies!
