Mini Strawberry Heart Pies
These Mini Strawberry Heart Pies are the perfect dessert for spoiling your sweetie on Valentine's Day or for entertaining those party guests. A pre-made pie crust is cut into the shape of hearts and then filled with sweet strawberry jam. It's an impressive treat that looks time-consuming but is so easy to make!
Servings: 10 -12 mini heart pies
- 2 refrigerated pie crusts
- 1 cup strawberry jam
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon water
- 2 tablespoons sparkling sugar
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk or heavy cream
- ½ teaspoon vanilla bean paste or vanilla extract
- Sprinkles if desired
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
Gently unroll each pie crust onto a lightly floured surface. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out an even number of hearts from each pie crust.
Place half of hearts onto prepared baking pan. Spread about 1 tablespoon of jam onto each heart that is on the baking pan. Take the remaining hearts and place over the heart with the jam. Using a fork, press down the edges of pie crust to lightly seal.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg and water. Brush over the tops of each heart. Sprinkle sparkling sugar over each heart.
Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until hearts are golden. Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes on pan. Then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
When pies are cooled, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract. Take each mini pie and dunk into the glaze. Top with sprinkles, if desired.
