Strawberries and Cream Hand Pies
Strawberries & Cream Hand Pies are individually glazed small pies stuffed with strawberry preserves, fresh strawberries and sweetened vanilla cream cheese.
Strawberries & Cream Hand Pies are as adorable as they are tasty! You can use any fruit you prefer, but you can’t beat the classic strawberry pie flavor.
I got the idea for these hand pies from McDonalds. That’s right, you read that correctly, good old McDonalds.
They put a new McDonalds right in front of my neighborhood. I could lie to you like a good blogger and say that my kids NEVER eat fast food. EVER.
I make everything from scratch and they gobble up their veggies at every meal with no problems. But that would be a giant fat stinking lie. My kids like chicken nuggets and sometimes Mom needs a little help. It’s just the truth.
So there I am ordering their happy meal and I see a big advertisement sign for their newest pie, a strawberry cream pie. I caved and ordered one.
And I gotta tell you, for .99 cents, it was really tasty. However, it had no real strawberry bites in it…only what seems to be a strawberry jam/jelly.
So here I am, with my version of little Strawberries and Cream Hand Pies. For a few dollars more, I was able to make 14 of them and my entire family gobbled them up!
Then I filled them with a mixture of strawberry preserves and fresh chopped strawberries and a dollop of sweetened vanilla cream cheese.
After they were baked and the pie crust was all gloriously golden and crusty, I dipped each hand pie in a sweet thin glaze — very similar to a donut glaze.
You are going to flip when you get a big warm bite of these! SO GOOD!
I hope you enjoy these gorgeous little hand pies as much as we did! Make sure and watch the video to see how easy they are to make!
