I've always loved using pie crust to make delicious treats and these are a favorite, for sure! A bit of jam, sandwiched between heart-shaped pie crusts, they're as cute as they are delicious.
To begin, prepare your favorite pie crust. Roll it out in thin strips to cut with a heart cookie cutter:
Add a dollop of seedless raspberry jam to the center of each heart:
Moisten the edge of the heart with water, all around, and cover with another heart cut-out:
Softly press top edge down onto bottom edge, forming a seal, and press sealed edges together with fork tines, all around:
Prick center of each little pie with fork tines and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned:
Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature:
Sweetie Pies make the perfect little homemade Valentine treat:
Or, you can dust them with powdered sugar:
And keep them on hand for a tasty little snack...
But you better act quick! They're so yummy that they'll be going..going...
