These easy heart shaped Strawberry Glazed Hand Pies are the perfect dessert. And in 30 minutes, you’ll have one of these baked treats in your hands!
I just can’t quit making these easy hand pies. I mean, I guess eventually I will run out of flavors, but until I do, I will continue to share and create new versions for you!
Today, just like my Peach Hand Pies, are an easy baked treat made with refrigerated pie crust and canned pie filling.
How to make Strawberry Hand Pies
Start with pie dough. Whether you make a homemade pie crust or use refrigerated pie dough is completely your choice. When making hand pies, I tend to rely on refrigerated pie crust dough for my crust, comes out perfect every time.
I also used strawberry pie filling for the center. One thing to note, be sure to check your pie filling for large chunks. These make it difficult to pinch the seams together. Give them a coarse chop to make sure they aren’t too big!
Using a 4″ round biscuit cutter (I bought mine here), cut as many circles in the pie dough that you can make….I can usually get 6 per crust, 12 per box, and I use 2 boxes per recipe, if that helps (I do roll my Pillsbury pie crust scraps together to get the extra circles)! I used a big Wilton Heart Shaped cookie cutter to get the hearts .
Once you have all your circles (or hearts), use a 1 Tbsp cookie scoop and fill it halfway with the blueberry pie filling, and scoop the other half with strawberry pie filling. You’ll want a total of about 1-1 1/2 TBSP filling per circle.
After each circle is filled, fold in half and pinch ends closed. Fold the ends onto each other and press with fork to seal. Poke fork once into top of each hand pie. Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Brush the tops of each unbaked hand pie with egg whites. Bake in a 425 degree F oven for about 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove and cool.
You can either make a sweet vanilla glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar and milk, or brush tops of each hand pie with melted butter and drop into a bowl of granulate sugar, for a crunchy, sugary treat!
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and these would be the perfect dessert. Ready in about 30 minutes, what’s not to love? You can even add a little drizzle of some melted chocolate (any flavor would be tasty!).
