They’re small. They’re pies. And they’re oh-so-sweet! Just in time for Valentine’s day, you can make these delicious pastries for your family!

All it takes is pie dough, jam, and a little bit of powdered sugar (for extra beauty).

Begin by flouring the counter and rolling pin and flatten out the pie dough.

Using a cookie cutter, cut out hearts in the dough.

Lay out the cut pie dough on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Spoon strawberry jam onto the centers, being careful not to fill them too full.

Wet the edges of the dough with water and place a second piece of dough on top.

Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges.

Poke a fork into the middle of each little pie so that the heat can escape.

Bake at 425° F for 13-15 minutes, or until golden.

Perfectly golden on the bottom!

Sprinkle with powered sugar for extra beauty.

They are delicious and will probably disappear quickly!

The pie dough was extra flaky, making the perfect texture.

We decided that these are the cutest little desserts that we have ever made!

This idea can be easily adjusted for any holiday or celebration by changing the shape of the cookie cutter and type of jam/jelly/preserves used for the filling.

{Original idea from here.}

    The one I had was delicious….could’ve used a little more jam for my taste…but then again, I usually end up with jam all over me when it fits my proportions :)

    Mmm… those look absolutely delicious… and I think I just might have time to make them tomorrow, and we have plenty of pie dough in the freezer!

    We made these two weeks ago! Of course, mine weren’t nearly as pristine as yours (four little hands helping DOES that.) but they were delicious. We used our own homemade strawberry jam (is there anything better?), painted them with an eggwhite (with a drop of red food coloring) and sprinkled (and occasionally dumped thanks to Andrew) coarse sugar crystals atop instead of powdered sugar.

    They were SO good straight from the oven. And we had them for breakfast several mornings too-following suite with Almanzo’s mother. Pies for breakfast? Hey-SHE did it—why can’t we?!?

    Those certainly are adorable! We’ll have to try them sometime!

    (And nice job on the photography, btw! Food can be a challenge to photograph!)

    What darling little deserts! They sound so tasty; although they’re almost too pretty to eat! ;) I’ll definitely have to make those. Andrew and I had such fun making heart-shaped sugar cookies and decorating them with red sprinkles for Mama and Daddy for Valentine’s Day. :)

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe with us!

    Love you,

    P.S. Daddy and I will be arriving at Callaway Thursday the 25th. Yay! :) Can’t wait to see you all!

  26. Katie on Feb 18, 2010 said:

    Those look lovely! (and very yummy)

    I’ve been following your blog for about a year, and you have been a wonderful source of hope and inspiration. You are also an amazing photographer! This Christmas my family suprised me with a new fancy camera. I love it and am having so much fun using it! I don’t know a lot about cameras, so right now the pictures I take with my new camera are the same as the ones I take with an old point-and-shoot. I was wondering if you could share any tips about taking photos? I was also wondering what program you use, and what type of changes you make to the photos. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you so much for taking the time to blog, and sharing bits from your life. You and your family are very special people! May God bless you.

    Hello Emily!
    I believe I commented before on this post, but I just wanted to comment again and say thank you for putting that recipe on here! I made them and they tasted DELICIOUS! I LOVED them!

  36. Emily on Mar 8, 2010 said:

    Your photography skills are amazing. Truly. One day I hope to be that good.
    The little pies are quite darling, too. I will have to save this in my recipe book for next Valentine’s day!
    Also, I have always wanted my middle name to be Rose.

  37. Megan on Mar 18, 2010 said:

    I thought you should know that I tried out this recipe over break. This is fabulous!! Couldn’t get enough of them! As for the dough, I recommend trying Pappy’s–as good as any homemade dough. :)

    Oh how lovely! I can practically smell them thru the screen! Will have to take note of these and make them soon :0) Blessings, Katy

    Those look so scrumptious! Unfortunately I don’t have the patience to make them since I know my 7 children (and one yummy-loving-hubby) will gobble them up! : )

  40. Kimmie on May 8, 2010 said:

    Oh, these will be so fun to make. Our new daughter is enjoying being in the kitchen…she has so many new tastes to try here in America. I think we will make a batch of these today…thank you for sharing yours and blessing us!
