Strawberries & Cream Hand Pies



    1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a small bowl, combine strawberry preserves and fresh strawberries. Set aside.
    3. In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Set aside.
    4. Unroll pie crusts and cut circles from each crust using a 4-inch biscuit cutter. You may roll the pie dough scraps to get the extra circles, if you choose.
    5. Fill half of the pie dough circles with 1 tablespoon cream cheese mixture and 1 tablespoon strawberry mixture. Sandwich together with another pie dough circle and use the prongs of a fork to seal the edges. Cut a small slit in the top for air to escape.
    6. Beat egg in a small bowl. Brush over the tops of each pie. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes, until lightly browned.
    7. While pies are baking, make the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until smooth. This will make a thin glaze.
    8. Remove pies from baking sheet while still warm and drop in glaze, coating completely.
    9. Return to parchment paper or a wire cooling rack and allow glaze to harden, about 10 minutes. Serve warm or cold.

    Easy as Pie ? My only recommendation is to cut the amount of preserves to 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup. The preserves got a little runny and came out of the crust. They weren't pretty, but the taste was Amazing!
