Halloween is fast approaching, well, in my eyes, the days are flying by and it will be here before you know it. I love Halloween and all that comes with it.

Especially the fun treats that you can make, like these Vampire Kiss Strawberry Hand Pies. With only 4 ingredients and a short time, these can be the perfect breakfast or dessert!

Now I love treats that can be used as multi-use meals, and this is one of them. These remind me of little pop-tarts, so that is why I think they also make a great breakfast option.

They are spooky, fun, and perfect for kids. They are so easy that you will want to get your kids to join in on helping you make these as well.

If you are a fan of themed treats and are ready to get that Halloween baking list created, then these Vampire Kiss Strawberry Hand Pies need to be on it.

Some of my other favorite strawberry flavored treats include: Strawberry Sugar Cookies, Strawberry Butter and Strawberry Earthquake Cake!

Ingredients needed to make Vampire Kiss Strawberry Hand Pies.

HOW TO MAKE VAMPIRE KISS STRAWBERRY HAND PIES:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Line sheet tray with foil and spray with cooking spray or parchment paper, and set aside.
  2. On a clean work surface, unroll the pie crusts. Using a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out 20 hearts. 
  3. Evenly divide the cherry pie filling to the center of half of the hearts, leaving a 1/4th inch border. 
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and water. Dip your fingertip into the egg wash and moisten the outside of the pie crust. Place another heart on top and press it down along the edges. Seal the edge with a fork, and repeat with the remaining pies.
  5. Place the pies on the prepared sheet tray. Take a sharp knife and cut two small triangles into the top pie crust. Brush the outside of the pies with egg wash. Try to avoid dipping the brush into the filling.
  6. Bake for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes on the tray, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

CAN I USE ANOTHER FILLING?

Yes! We use strawberry in this recipe, but you can also use raspberry or cherry pie filling. Or, if you do not want to use pie filling, you can also fill these with jams and jellies.

I would make sure that they are red or a deep purple/red in color, so it mimics the look of the “vampire kiss”.

CAN I USE A HOMEMADE PIE CRUST RECIPE?

Absolutely, we use refrigerated for this recipe to make it go faster, but if you have a double homemade pie crust recipe that you would like to make, I say go for it!

I DON’T HAVE A HEART COOKIE CUTTER CAN I USE ANOTHER?

You can easily find heart cookie cutters at your local grocery or craft store or online. But if you don’t want to, you can also use a 3-inch round cookie cutter for these.

HOW TO STORE:

These can be stored at room temp in an airtight container where they will keep for up to 3 days or in the refrigerator for 1 week.

These can also be frozen, place in a freezer bag, and will keep for up to 3 months.

To defrost, remove to the countertop overnight. You can reheat them by placing them in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds if you’d like.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • These are served best warm or at room temperature.
  • Other fillings can be added, see above on some ideas.
  • You can use a 3-inch round cookie cutter if you do not have a heart-shaped one.
  • These can be frozen, see above on how to do that.
  • Use your own homemade pie crust if you’d like.
  • For a nice crunch, sprinkle some coarse or decorators sugar on top before baking.
  • These are really good served with ice cream, whipped cream, or even dipped in a powdered sugar glaze.
  • Easily double this recipe if you’d like.
