Heart-Shaped Berry Hand Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 package Our Family® Pie Crust
  • 3 cups Our Family® Frozen Berry Blend, thawed
  • ½ cup Our Family® Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Our Family® Kosher Salt
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 2 tsp Our Family® Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Our Family® Vanilla Extract
  • 1 large Our Family® Egg, lightly beaten
  • 4 oz. Our Family® Cream Cheese, softened
  • ½ cup Our Family® White Chocolate, melted
  • ½ cup Our Family® Powdered Sugar
  • 4-5 Tbsp Our Family® Milk
  • Red, white and pink sprinkles (optional)

Directions

  1. Roll out pie crusts and cut out 16 heart shapes. Transfer to a baking sheet and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Combine berries, sugar, and salt in a saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together water and cornstarch until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to berries and cook for 2 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Transfer mixture to refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lay 8 dough hearts on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place 1-2 tablespoons of berry filling into center of each dough heart. Top with remaining dough hearts and crimp with a fork to seal. Use a sharp knife to cut a small vent on the top of each hand pie. Brush tops lightly with beaten egg and bake for 18-20 minutes or until dough is golden brown and filling is hot and bubbling. Transfer hand pies to a wire rack to cool completely before glazing.
  4. While pies bake, make glaze by beating together cream cheese, white chocolate and powdered sugar until smooth. Add milk a tablespoon at a time until glaze is thick but pourable. Glaze tops of pies and decorate with sprinkles if desired.
