Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies
I’ve made these pies for a few years now and my family always enjoy them. These Cherry Hand Pies are a great treat to make for your family or friends for Valentine’s Day or just to say, “I love you.” Although, they take very little time to make, they look as though they took a lot of work! My favorite thing about making them is that they’re just so easy!

With the process being really quick and the ingredient list being small… you’ll enjoy making them and they’ll enjoy eating them. Obviously so, it’s a win-win for everyone!

Because they’re so easy to make you could really make a variety of flavors and let your loved ones choose which to eat.
When it comes to garnishing these adorable pastries you can either go easy on the powdered sugar as seen below…
