Sweetheart Strawberry Pies

Use your favorite pie dough (I used store bought) and using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut out your shape.
Be sure to put flour on your dough
Cut strawberries into little pieces. Make them small, so it's easier to fill.
Sprinkle with a hefty amount of sugar, you want these pies to taste sweet :)
Fill half of your pie cutouts with the strawberry mixture
Place a spoonful of Ricotta on top
Seal to press with a fork
Brush top with melted butter. 
Bake in oven for roughly 15 min. Depending on the thickness of your dough and the strength of your oven it may take longer. Keep a close watch! When they are done, sprinkle with powder sugar and serve warm! Yum!

  • fresh cherries, chopped
  • ricotta cheese
  • sprinkle of sugar
  • 1 TBSP butter, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Roll out your pie dough (I bought a store bough pie crust and didn't need to roll it out much)
  3. Flour your dough
  4. Cut out shapes with cookie cutter.
  5. Cut strawberry into tiny piece and sprinkle with sugar
  6. Lay out your star cookie cut outs on the baking sheet. Spoon on your strawberries and riccotta. Lay down the top dough, seal to press with a fork.
  7. Brush the top with melted butter.
  8. Bake for about 15 minutes or until they are golden brown. The baking time will largely depend on the thickness of your pastry dough and your oven. Just keep close watch.
