By now you might have realized a couple things about me. 1. I can’t resist a heart–shaped treat on Valentines day, and 2. I love individual-sized desserts. So when I began thinking about what to make for Valentine’s Day this year, the answer was pretty simple: heart shaped raspberry hand pies.
The other thing I love on Valentine’s Day? Buying $1 decorations at Target, so much so that I after I finished these pies, I realized I had bought mini heart cake pans last year… oops!
These hand pies are even greater because they take only 35 minutes to make and only requires 3 ingredients. Plus they feel healthy since its just raspberries in the filling.
8 hand pies in under and hour, the toughest decision you have to make is whether to share or not?
Raspberry Hand Pies
one for your valentines, 7 for you
- 1 store bought pie crust
- 1 cup frozen raspberries thawed
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- 2 tbsp sugar optional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Roll out the pie crust.
Use a heart shape cutter to cut as many hearts as you can. I got in 16.
Optional: Add sugar to your raspberries.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place 8 hearts on the cookie sheet. Spoon 1-2 spoonfuls of thawed raspberries into the center of the heart. (Leave enough room to seal the hearts on every side.
Brush the egg whites around the edges of the 8 hearts, place the second set of 8 hearts on top, forming a sandwich.
Use a fork to press the edges of each heart to seal the two pieces of pie together.
Brush each of the pies with egg whites.
Cook for 25 minutes.
