This sweet idea comes from the very talented Jill at Meet the Dubiens. She has many precious ideas for making every day special.
2 pie crusts, either homemade or thawed frozen store bought
1 can cherry pie filling
1 egg white, beaten
red sugar, for decorating
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Either roll out your freshly-made pie dough or remove thawed store-bought pie crusts from their aluminum shell and place on a piece of parchment paper and smooth out. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, start cutting out hearts. Two pie shells should make 5-6 heart pies (which is 10 hearts top and bottom).
|See how I overfilled this heart and it is leaking out a little.|
Using a fork, press down on all edges to make a tight seal. This is very important. If the seal is not tight, all the cherry pie filling will leak out while baking.
Sprinkle with red sugar if desired. Bake at 375 F for about 17 minutes, or until golden.
A heart tart for someone you love.
Happy St. Valentine's Day.
