Valentine Strawberry Heart Hand Pies Recipe
1 package pre made pie crust (look for one with no hydrogenated oils, like trader joes or store brand)
strawberry pie filling (look for one with no high fructose corn syrup)
fresh strawberries – 1 or 2, washed and dried
heart cookie cutter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use one package (1 round) of pie crust. Cut out 8 hearts and place 4 onto a Silpat lined baking sheet. Place 2 spoonfuls of strawberry pie filling into the center of each heart. Cut small holes into the center of the remaining hearts. Dip your finger into water and moisten the edge of each remaining heart and place it on top of each prepared heart. Press gently with your finger, then use a fork to press the edges to form a seal. Place one slice of a fresh strawberry on top of each hole. Cook for 20 minutes. Serves 4.
