Mini- Heart Shaped Strawberry Filled Pies / Cookies

20150212_180826

I am always trying to create easy, fun snacks for my daughter’s second grade class for any party they have. This time I decided to make a mini-heart shaped, strawberry filled, pie/cookie. I say both pie and cookie, because it looks like a cookie but tastes like a small pie!! You can use any other type of jam in the center, or even Nutella. Use your imagination and have fun with this recipe! I recommend making a practice batch too! Mix it up!

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Baking Time: 15 – 18 minutes 

Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter (at least 3 inches wide)

Ingredients:

1 package of pie crust (using my 3 inch wide, heart cookie cutter – I could cut approximately 14 to 16 hearts per individual pie crust) 

Strawberry Jam (or any type of jam – I purchased Welch’s Natural Strawberry Spread in a squeezable bottle) 

 Sugar

Milk

Directions: 

** I recommend using parchment paper while you are cutting and filling the hearts. 

1. Cut heart shapes from the pie crust. After you have completed this step, I suggest refrigerating the hearts. Sometimes, the pie crust will become warm and sticky. In this instance it will get too soft and difficult to move.  I would put them in the fridge for about 10 mins.

2. Place jam in the center of one heart. Then, cover with another heart. Press the sides of the heart with a fork. Make sure you go all the way around.

4.  Brush with milk and then sprinkle sugar on top. Bake at 370 degrees for 15 – 18 mins.
