  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Mix one egg with two tablespoons of water until combined. Set Aside.
  • Allow the Pie Crust to come to room temperature before unrolling. Next, with a cookie cutter of your choice shape, cut the dough into an even amount of pieces.
  • For one half of your dough pieces, fill the center with two heaping tablespoons of Cherry Preserves.
  • Lay one pie of the remaining dough unto each hand pie. Brush the ends with egg wash, and then crimp the two half together with a fork. Make a small X in the center of each pie to prevent bursting while baking.
  • Brush the hand pies with remaining egg wash, and sprinkle with course sugar.
  • Bake at 350° for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.


  • These pies can be stored at room temperature in an air tight container for 2 days. 
  • Once assembled, unbaked pies can be frozen individually first, and then consolidated into a zip lock bag and frozen for 6 months. 
  • Frozen pies can be baked from frozen at the time and temperature listed above.
