Mini Heart Strawberry Pies



Today I made some miniature strawberry heart pies.  I love them - they scream Happy Valentine's Day!


They were super easy to make because I used store-bought pie dough.

Ingredients:

store-bought pie dough 

strawberry jam

1 egg

tablespoon of milk

granulated sugar

Directions:

The store-bought pie-dough comes with two rolls of pie dough in each box.  Bring the pie dough to room temperature and roll the dough a little thinner on a lightly floured surface. Cut out 12 hearts.


Put a tablespoon of strawberry jam in the middle of each heart. Note: in the above picture I used a Silpat but parchment paper would also work in a pinch.


Roll out the second piece of pie dough with the rolling pin and cut out 12 more hearts. Place them on top of the jam hearts. Using the blunt end of a skewer punch little holes around the hearts.

Put the cookie sheet with the hearts into the refrigerator. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Meanwhile combine and egg with milk in a small bowl.

Once the oven is ready take the cookie sheet out of the fridge and brush the egg mixture over each heart. Sprinkle with a small amount of sugar.


Bake for 10-12 minutes until the hearts are golden brown.


Serve with a little vanilla ice cream! Happy Valentine's Day!
