Boozy Valentine Hand Pies

Pick your flavor! Strawberries or blueberries are tossed in a sugary bourbon mixture, tucked into a flaky pie crust, then cooked to golden brown perfection. Gorgeously delicious!

Boozy Valentine Hand Pies  

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen

Make love for Valentine's Day. It's easy with this recipe for homemade strawberry and blueberry hand pies!


Sweet mounds of fruit are embraced between two layers of pie crust in this quick, simple, and totally stunning recipe. Prepare yourself to fall madly, deeply, into dessert.

Strawberries are red….

Blueberries are blue…

Ingredients for fruit hand pies.

These four ingredients are all you need to make fruity hand pies for you! (or someone you love)…

 

Mix fruit, sugar and cornstarch to make the pie filling.

For real, there's not a easier way to get your Valentine's bakery-snakery on than with this recipe. Just toss the frozen berries (strawberry or blueberries both work brilliantly!) with sugar and cornstarch.

 

Spoon fruit over the bottom crust.

Then spoon the filling (the fruit part, not the goopy, liquidy part) into the center of little pie crusts cut into hearts with a cookie cutter.

 

Place top crust over fruit filling.

Gently place a second pie crust on top of the fruit filling.

 

Crimp the edges of the crusts together with a fork.

Secure the edges with a firm press of your fingers, then add a smush with the tines of a fork to make it all look extra purdy. This is what we do for our valentines. Fork tine love. See how that works?

Once your hand pies are all baked and slightly cooled, drizzle brightly colored icing (recipe included below) all over the top of your treats. What's that? Heart palpitations of happiness? Yeah, we know. We can't be held responsible for medical bills resulting from general hand pie awesomeness.

Boozy Valentine Hand Pies

Ingredients

1
cup Cascadian Farms frozen blueberries or strawberries
2
tablespoons bourbon
1/2
cup sugar
2
tablespoons cornstarch
1
package Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust
1
cup powdered sugar
2
tablespoons milk
1
tube Betty Crocker blue or red food coloring gel

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • 2 In a medium bowl, combine frozen fruit, bourbon, sugar, and cornstarch. Stir until well mixed, then set aside.
  • 3 Cut each of the two pie crusts into 8 hearts, using a 3-4 inch heart-shaped cookie cutter.
  • 4 Spoon 1/4 cup of the fruit into the center of four of the hearts. Try not to get any of the juices onto your pie crust.
  • 5 Place a second heart on top of the fruit mixture, press the edges firmly to seal, then use a fork to create a decorate border around the edges. Transfer to a baking sheet.
  • 6 Bake pies for 10-14 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and transfer immediately to a cooling rack, using a knife to trim off any runny fruit remnants, if needed. Allow to cool slightly.
  • 7 In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and milk (add more milk, if needed, to create a thick-but-runny glaze). Tint to desired color using Betty Crocker food coloring gels. Transfer frosting to a plastic bag, snip the corner from each bag, and drizzle over hand pies.
  • 8 Allow frosting to set before serving. Enjoy!
