Heart Shaped Strawberry Hand Pies

Servings: 12 
Time: 40 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 lime, juiced & zested
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 tablespoons Fleischmann’s Cornstarch
  • 1 double-crust pie dough, chilled
  • Egg wash, to finish
  • Coarse sugar, to finish

Directions:

1. To a skillet over medium-low heat add strawberries, sugar, water, lime juice, lime zest & salt.

2. Bring to a gentle simmer & continue cooking until strawberries begin to break down, about 8 minutes. Stir in the cornstarch & remove from heat as soon as mixture thickens. Set aside to cool.

3. Roll out prepared pie dough to ¼ inch thick. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, slice dough into 4-inch (roughly) hearts.

4. Transfer half the heart cut outs to a lined baking sheet. Brush the edges with egg wash & add a spoonful of the strawberry filling to the centre. Top with a second heart cut out & seal the edges with a fork.

5. Brush the top with remaining egg wash & sprinkle with coarse sugar.

6. Bake at 375(f) degrees for 15 minutes, until golden. Serve warm or room temperature!
