Units Scale

For the Pies

  • all-purpose flour for dusting
  • 2 premade 9-inch pie crusts or homemade pie dough
  • 3/4 cup strawberry jam

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 400℉ and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Make an egg wash by whisking together 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Lightly dust your work surface with flour. Roll the 2 prepared pie crusts onto your surface. If you’re using homemade dough, roll it out to about 13 inches in diameter.
  4. Use a 3.5 inch cookie cutter to cut 24 pieces. Each crust will yield about 8 cut-outs from the first rolling. For the remaining cut-outs, gather the dough scraps into a loose ball and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough. You will use 12 cut-outs for the bottom crusts and 12 for the tops.
  5. Use a fork to prick the 12 top pieces. This will vent the pie and allow steam to escape.
  6. Lay the bottoms onto your work surface and add 1 tablespoon of the strawberry jam to the center of each piece. 
  7. Place the tops on. Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges. Lightly brush the tops of each pie with egg wash.
  8. Use a flat spatula to transfer each pie to the parchment-lined baking sheets. Then, bake at 400℉ for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.
  9. Remove from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack.
  10. Meanwhile, make the vanilla glaze. Add the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to a bowl. Whisk until a smooth glaze forms. It should be thick but pourable.
  11. Drizzle the pies with the glaze and leave them on the cooling rack while the glaze dries. It will be fully set in about 2 hours.


  • They are ready to serve once the glaze is set. Or store them at room temperature, loosely covered for up to 2 days. 
  • Use a 3-4 inch cookie cutter. Use a simple shape like a circle, square, heart, or star.
