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.


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?”.


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!
