  • store-bought or homemade pie dough


Egg Wash

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  • In a medium saucepan, add in sugar and cornstarch. Stir to combine. This will prevent lumps.
  • Add in 1 1/2 cups strawberries. Turn on medium heat and stir often. Mash the strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon. Bring to a boil over medium heat and let boil for 4 minutes until thick. The filling will become thick.
  • Add the remaining 1/2 cup fresh strawberries and vanilla extract into the mixture and stir in.
  • Place in a bowl and cover. Chill in the fridge.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Generously flour your countertop. Roll out your pie dough to about ⅛ inch thick. Cut out 6-inch circles. I used a small cake pan for mine.
  • Spread about 2 - 3 tablespoons of strawberry filling on one half of the circle.
  • In a small bowl, add in the egg and water for the egg wash. Using a fork, whip until the egg is thoroughly combined with the water it doesn't look separated.
  • Using a pastry brush, spread egg wash around the edges of the pie crust. Fold over the pie crust so it's half a circle and press the edges down.
  • Place the hand pies on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Using a clean fork, press the edges carefully but firmly to seal them. You don't want the filling to leak out!
  • Cut steam holes in the top of each hand pie with a knife. I used a round piping tip and cut out two holes and then a V shape with a knife to form a heart.
  • Use the pastry brush to egg wash to entire top and sides of the hand pies.
  • Place the cookie sheet with the hand pies in the oven for 18 minutes until the tops are golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
