Add a little love to someone’s day with these cute heart-shaped mini pies. Filled with cherry and topped with sugar crystals, these pastries are sure to sweeten up your day!
- 1 Can of cherry pie filling
- 1 Pre-made pie crust (makes 4-6 hand pies depending on the size of your cookie cutter)
- 2 T Cream cheese (optional)
- 2 T Melted butter
- Sugar crystal sprinkles
- Cookie sheet
- Heart-shaped cookie cutter
Pre-heat the oven to 375F
Empty the cherry pie filling in a bowl and stir in the cream cheese. Set aside.
Roll out the pre-made pie crust and use the heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut two hearts for each hand pie you’ll be making.
Spoon about 2 T of filling on 1 of the 2 hand pie hearts for each pie. The filling should only be in the center of the heart.
Place the second heart over the first heart with filling and gently press down the edges to seal the pie.
Use a fork to create a decorative edge by pressing the prongs around the heart.
Cut a small X in the center top layer of the heart for a vent.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Brush with butter and pour sugar crystal over the pies.
Let cool and serve warm.
