“You’re my Honeybunch, Sugarplum
Pumpy-umpy-umpkin, You’re my Sweetie Pie
You’re my Cuppycake, Gumdrop
Snoogums-Boogums, You’re
the Apple of my Eye

And I love you so and I want you to know
That I’ll always be right here
And I love to sing sweet songs to you
Because you are so dear!”

I made an apple pie a few days ago and decided to make up a batch of these little cuties with the extra pie dough. They’re very easy to make and bake up in about 10 minutes. They make a wonderful picnic basket or lunchbox dessert. You can use pre-made dough if you wish.

~Sweetie Pies~

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Roll out pie crust dough on a lightly floured surface. Cut out pastry hearts with a heart shaped cookie cutter. In the center of each heart, place a dollop of your favorite jam or pie filling. Place another pastry heart on top. Using a fork, gently seal edges of hearts together. Prick each heart with a fork to allow heat to escape the sweetie pies as they bake. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack or a cutting board. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Enjoy!

    My mom is a huge baker, and she would always make us little individual pies and cakes from the leftovers. I might have to call her and see if she’ll make a batch for my daycare kids now.

    They’re really yummy. I also make a larger version, English Pasty, with ham, apples, onions, gravy and spices inside. Wonderful!

    I wonder if you could use phyllo dough for the crust so it’s flaky but I’m thinking it might lose it’s shape of heart. 🙁
