Lemon Hand Pies

lemonpies

Growing up I used to love the little mini Hostess pies that you could get for a quarter.  I haven’t had them in years, but recently thought I would make something similar.  I should have made my own filling and pie dough, but went with easy store bought ingredients.  They turned out great, and perfect size.  After one or two, your craving for pie is met.  These would be great any time of the year, with your favorite flavors, and in any shape.  I did hearts since it was so close to Valentine’s Day.  I went off of this recipe from Pillsbury, but made adjustments for how I actually went about making them.

Makes 24 mini heart pies for less than $5

INGREDIENTS:

Pie crusts – $2.36

Pie filling – $2.41

Powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Remove pie crusts from pouches and roll out on work surface.  Cut out shapes.  Roll out scraps of dough and cut out more.  I got 24 hearts from each sheet of crust.  Lay out hearts on cookie sheets.
