Valentines Day Hand Pies


  • Store bough pie crust

  • Berry jam (whichever brand or flavor your prefer)

  • 1 egg

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar

  • 1 1/2 - 3 Tbsp. water

  • food dye, red or pink (optional)

  • sprinkles (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out as many hearts as you can from the pie crust.

  3. Place the hearts on the cookie sheet about 1 1/2" apart.

  4. Place about 1 Tbsp. of jam in the center of each heart. Use a butterknife or an offset spatula to help spread the jam around the heart a bit more. Keep about 1/4" clear along the edge.

  5. Whisk the egg in a small bowl then brush this along the edge of the heart with the jam in the center.

  6. Top each pie with another heart. Press a fork along the edges to seal the jam inside and close the sides.

  7. Brush the egg wash on top of the entire hand pie.

  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

  9. Let the pies cool completely on a wire rack.

  10. In the meantime, whisk together the confectioners sugar and water to bake the glaze. Add the water a little at a time until you reach a smooth consistency. Add the food dye of your choice.

  11. Once the hand pies have cooled, place the glaze into a piping bag then pipe on the details. Use the video above to see how I decorated my hand pies. I also topped mine with festive sprinkles.

  12. Have fun and enjoy!
