Cherry Cream Cheese Hand Pies

Jump to Recipe Print RecipeShare This Post!The first time I made these little pies was for my husband and I’s first Valentines Day after our daughter was born. We didn’t feel like leaving the house (probably because we were so sleep deprived) and decided to make a nice dinner at home and just relax. We have definitely had our fair share of eating out and dressing up for dinners but sometimes I just love the simplicity of a meal made at home. Now our little ones are 4 and almost 2 and every once in a while we put them to bed and enjoy a late night dinner date at home. These little pies are perfect for these date nights! They’re so easy, you can make them a day ahead of time, they’re even great for school lunch treats! And you really can make with any shape cookie-cutter that you have! They start off with the cream cheese mixture which is just cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla. You cant’ go wrong with that! The crust is just a store bought pie crust! It doesn’t get any easier than this! They come 2 per box but

Cherry Cream Cheese Hand Pies

  • 1 Store bought pie crust
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • A sprinkle of flour for dusting your work surface
  • 3/4 cup canned cherry pie filling
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a small bowl, mix together your cream cheese, 2 tbsp of sugar, and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • Sprinkle a little bit of flour on your counter or a board large enough to hold your pie crust and unroll your
  • pie crust onto the flour. I only use one of the pie crusts that comes in the box. You can freeze the other one
  • for another time!
  •  I use a rolling pin and roll my dough a little bit thinner. I just like makes the dough a little bit easier to work
  • with.
  •  Using your cookie cutter, cut out as many pieces as you can. I used a 3" heart for these and I cut out 12 (for
  • 6 total pies). You can keep squeezing together the scraps and re-rolling them to get as many cut-outs as you
  • can. Just make sure you are flouring your surface so the dough doesn't stick.
  •  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mats and lay out your cut-outs.
  •  Spoon 1 tbsp of the cream cheese mixture onto half of them (The other half will be the tops of the pies)
  • Then take a heaping tbsp of the pie filling and spoon it on top of the cream cheese mixture. Try to stay clear
  • of the edges as best you can.
