My husband was SO excited when I told him about my idea to make these Conversation Heart Hand Pies. I wasn’t sure how they were going to LOOK, but I knew they would taste amazing, and so did he. Pie is one of our favorite desserts ever, so this post was almost more for us than it was for you guys.
I don’t think there are very many people who actually enjoy conversation heart candy. It’s chalky, dry and just not very flavorful. I LOVE those cute little messages on the candy hearts and wanted a way to incorporate those into our Valentine’s Day without the candies, and thus Conversation Heart Hand Pies were born.
Conversation Heart Hand Pies
You will need:
Large heart cookie cutter
Refrigerated pie crust (pack of 2)
Raspberry (or preferred flavor) pie filling
Red Food Coloring
OR use this super cool food coloring PEN!
Use a spoon to place a heart shaped section of pie filling. DO NOT OVERFILL. You will regret it.
Use a fork to crimp the edges before baking.
When they’re done baking, they should look like this. Let them cook on a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Use a fine paintbrush to paint little messages onto your pies in red food coloring. Don’t use too much or it will bleed into the pie crust and look really funky. OR You can use these SUPER cool red food coloring pens! Let them dry for 10 minutes before adding the glaze.
Place wax paper on your cooling rack. Place the pies on the wax paper and spoon the glaze carefully over the top of the pies. The food coloring won’t bleed unless you press on the words and smear it. Let them dry for 10-15 minutes and then they’re ready to eat! What flavor will you make? Make a personalized dessert with ease when you make these Conversation Heart Hand Pies!
