Strawberry Ginger Hand Pies

Ingredients

  • 2 pie crusts
  • 1.5 cups chopped strawberries about 8 oz.
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger about a 1-inch piece
  • 1 egg beaten, mixed with 1 tablespoon water (for a vegan alternative, use non-dairy milk)
  • turbinado sugar for top

Instructions

  • Mix together the strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, and ginger. Set aside.
  • Roll out the pie crusts and, using a 3″ heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut 14-16 hearts.
  • In the center of one cut-out, place about 2 tablespoons of the strawberry mixture. Brush the edges with the egg wash, then put another cut out on top. Use a fork to seal the edges, and pierce the top in a criss-cross with a sharp paring knife.
  • Repeat for all the cutouts; place on a parchment covered baking sheet.
  • Brush the tops of each pie with the egg wash, and sprinkle turbinado sugar on each.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
