Mini Heart-Shaped Cherry Pies ~ EASY! Valentine’s Day

in General, Real Food / Easy Meals

You can’t plan far enough ahead. I’m already looking forward to next Valentines Day. If you’re like @MarthaStewart and Me, you’ll plant your cherry trees now!

Fine! You got me… I made these for this past Valentine’s Day (it was only a week ago!), but I wouldn’t want to post them on-time. That would just be smart, organised and all together too on-the-ball for me. I’m Mommyknows not Mommysorganised.

Let’s get on with it shall we? If you want to say, “I love you!” with a cherry pie, then this post is for you.

Ingredients:

Pie Crust
Cherry Pie Filling
2 TBSP of milk
1-2 tsp of sugar

I bought the Pillsbury Pie crusts, they come in a box in butter/eggs section of your grocers. They taste great and they’re easy to work with. As the grand-daughter of two prize-winning-pie-makers, I ought to know. If you prefer to make your own pie crust or filling for that matter, well then, knock yourself out! I just want to say, “I love you!”, not “Will you marry me and give me babies?”.

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 f.

Mini Cherry Pies

Roll out pie crusts and cut into heart shapes (you’ll need pairs of course).

Mini Cherry Pies

Put a dollop of pie filling in the center, of just half of the hearts. Try to stay in the middle of the heart, you don’t want a leaky, sticky mess (we’re being loving folks!).

Cover with extra hearts, and seal edges using a fork.

Brush each heart with a touch of milk and sprinkle with sugar. I then cut an ‘x’ shaped vent in the top of each. Like a wee kiss!

Bake for 20 minutes (this time is for 1.5″ hearts), if you use a different sized cut-out you may need to adjust the cooking time. No worries, just keep and eye on them!

Enjoy!
