Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Prep time :

Bake/Cook time :
0:14 to 0:18
Yield :
5 - 6 pies

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add cherries and sugar to a medium saucepan and turn heat to medium. Using a wooden spoon cut cherries in half or quarters if really large and stir. Cook for about 5-­8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool while working with pie dough.
  3. If using store bought pie crust, unroll the pie crust and fold in half twice. Cut dough in half and roll out to about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Using a 4 1/2 inch heart cookie cutter (or your favorite cookie cutter) cut out heart shape.
  5. Arrange 5-­6 heart shapes on cookie sheet with parchment paper. Using your fingers, brush egg wash along the outside edges of each heart. Then, add about 1 tablespoon of the cherry filling (trying to use as little of the cherry juice as possible) to heart shaped dough. Repeat for each heart.
  6. Next, take remaining hearts and place on top of filled hearts. Using your fingers, press edges to seal. Using end of a fork, press into the edges of hearts. Brush egg wash on top of each heart and sprinkle sugar on top.
  7. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown.
