Mini hand pies filled with Nutella and Tart Cherry Preserves. A simple and delicious Valentine’s Day dessert!
Say ‘I Love You’ Sweetie Pie!
These cute little pies are so easy to make and taste amazing. I make many different flavored hand pies. But this Nutella and Tart Cherry combo is my absolute favorite!
Flaky buttery Pillsbury Pie Crust filled with chocolaty Nutella and Smucker’s Tart Cherry Preserves. Top with a sugar glaze for hand pie perfection!
Perfect for a Valentine’s Day dessert or as a special treat. The kiddos were grinning from ear to ear when I surprised them with these tiny pockets full of yum!
Round up your favorite jam, chocolate spread and pie crust.
I could eat the entire jar of Cherry Preserves and Nutella with a spoon if I let myself. Not that I have ever done that . . . but a girl can dream.
Cut the pie dough into the shapes that you want. Hearts for Valentine’s Day, of course.
I made some pies with heart cutouts and saved the heart shapes to place on top of the rest of the pies.

- 1 Package of Pillsbury Pie Crusts (2 crusts)
- 2-3 Tb Smucker's Tart Cherry Preserves
- 2-3 Tb Nutella
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2-3 tsp Hot Water
- Preheat oven to 350°
- Let both pie crusts sit out at room temperature for 15 minutes.
- Unroll crusts and cut out desired shapes. (I used a cup that was the size circle that I wanted)
- Transfer half of the circles to a greased cookie sheet.
- Spread about 1 tsp of Nutella on the pie crust circles that are on the cookie sheet. Do not spread all the way to the edges.
- Top Nutella with 1 tsp Tart Cherry Preserves. Feel free to add a little extra filling but don't go overboard or the pies will burst while cooking.
- For the egg wash - mix egg and 1 tsp water with fork until combined. (if you don't have an egg, heavy cream works just as well)
- Brush inside edges of the circles with the egg wash.
- Top the filled crusts with the remaining pie crust circles.
- Use a fork to crimp and seal the edges.
- Brush the top of each pie with egg wash.
- Bake at 350° for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
- Allow pies to cool for about 5 minutes before glazing.
- Add the hot water to the powdered sugar 1 tsp at a time and mix with fork. 2-3 tsp until desired consistency.
- Drizzle glaze over hand pies.

Roll out the leftover pie crust. Cut into hearts. Lightly brush with egg wash. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake with the hand pies. Dip into the leftover glaze. Eat.
Be My Valentine.
