I thought about starting the year off 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 for months!

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

How to make Lemon Hand Pies

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!

Also, give these Apple Empanadas a whirl. Perfect treat on a fall day!

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, optional

Instructions

  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.

Comments & Reviews

  1. I’m not sure what keeps going wrong. 🙁 I tried this several times today, but even with poking holes in the top and making sure they’re pinched closed/pressing the fork down to seal, the lemon curd basically liquifies and melts out of each one. Could it be the specific curd I am using?

  2. All your hand-pies look wonderful. BUT, it would be a disappointment for others like me who are maybe remembering Hostess brand “hand-pies”. I’m thinking they must be 5inches round and then folded. They were so much larger than I think your recipe makes. Do you remember these pies? It’s no problem to make bigger ones I’m sure, just a bigger circle. But I wonder if some are disappointed at the size.

    1. I am so bad. Do you remember Arthur Treachers lemon pies. They were to die for. I am so excited to find your recipe going to try it today. Have plenty of time with this isolation going on

  3. I just found your recipe for Peach Hand Pies. Now I have pinned the peach, the berry, and now the lemon. Please tell me you have a chocolate version for these hand pies! No more hostess in this home 🙂

    1. I do, but it’s more of a s’mores. I’ll have to get on a chocolate “pudding” like one, that sounds amazing! I forgot about those 🙂

  4. Why some people have to be sooo judgmental? If they want to do what they prefer to do, then more power to them,I feel if they have nothing good to say just ZIPPE IT

  5. “2 boxes (14.1 oz each) refrigerated pie crust”
    “1 can (15 oz) lemon pie filling”

    Looks great, but you call this a recipe? 😀

    1. I sure do! A recipe is a collection of ingredients. If you want to make your own pie crust, go for it. Use homemade lemon curd, more power to you. This is just a starting point 🙂
