Simple strawberry hand pies are the cutest and simplest little portable pies perfect for sharing and devouring!
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 6

Ingredients 

Strawberry Filling:

  • 2 cups (288 g) strawberries
  • 1/2 cup (99 g) granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (57 g) water
  • 1 teaspoon (5 g) vanilla extract , or almond flavoring

Pie Crust:

Topping:

  • 2 tablespoons (28 g) butter, melted
  • raw, or turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Instructions 

  • Add strawberries, sugar and water to a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-low heat. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat, stir in vanilla extract and allow to cool.
  • Meanwhile, prepare pie crust according to recipe instructions. Roll pie crust to 1/8-inch thickness and cut with a 2-inch round cutter. Pull any scraps back together and reroll and cut until you have 12 circles. Arrange onto a rimmed baking sheet lined with a silicon baking mat or parchment paper. Cover with a damp cloth while the strawberries cool.
  • Once strawberries have cooled, spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling into the center of half of the circles of pie crust. Top with another circle of pie dough and seal edges with a fork. Cut three slits with a sharp knife into the top of the pie crust to allow steam to escape while baking.
  • Wrap well with plastic wrap and place into freezer for 15 minutes or until ready to bake.
  • Preheat oven to 400º F.
  • Remove plastic wrap from baking sheet, brush tops of each pie with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Place baking sheet into preheated oven. Bake until golden brown and bubbling, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool about 10 minutes before serving.

  1. I made these yesterday and they were sooo good!! From the pie crust to the strawberry filling… And the size is just perfect!
    I decided to give it a try and made some with dulce de Leche instead of strawberry and they turned out delicious too!
    My family LOVED them! They’re all gone, so I’ll make some more tonight!
    Thank you for the recipe!!

    1. I’m so glad y’all loved them, Cecillia! Love switching them up with the dulce de leche! YUM!

  2. Hi Robyn,
    The recipe for the filling calls for 1 tsp vanilla extract, should I add it to the saucepan with the rest of the ingredients before the strawberries come to a boil? I can’t find that part in the instructions…
    Thank you so much for all your delicious recipes!!!

    1. Hi Cecilia,
      Thanks so much for catching that! You should add the vanilla extract to your strawberries as you remove them from the heat to cool. Thanks again! xo

    1. Hi Jessica,
      Sure! Of course I’m a bit prejudice that my pie crust makes them even better 🙂 I hope you enjoy them!

  3. 5 stars
    I never quite know how to measure Strawberries…. When a recipe calls for 2 CUPS strawberries. is that cut up, diced, etc. in order to get the correct measurement. Seems if you just drop strawberries in a cup measure, there’s all that space around the strawberries. Also in the case of your recipie, you say to add the strawberries…. is that WHOLE? THANKS FOR YOUR REPLY.

    Haven’t made it yet, but had to Star it in order to send my comment

    1. Hi Sylvia,
      For this recipe, you’ll measure these whole. No need to cut them up! I hope you enjoy it!
