Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, washed, hulled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed just until foldable (a sheet is about 12 by 18 inches)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoons water

Instructions

  1. Add the sliced strawberries, sugar and cornstarch to a pot and stir together while cold.

  2. Turn the heat to medium and cook until the mixture is bubbly. Mash the strawberries a little bit with a fork and set aside to cool.

  3. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large baking sheet, lining it with parchment paper.

  4. Roll out the cold, but thawed, puff pastry sheet and cut into 6 large squares.

  5. Add a dollop of the strawberry filling in the middle of each square and brush the edges of each square with a little bit of water. 

  6. Fold each square over to form a large triangle and crimp the edges of the triangle with a fork.

  7. Combine the egg and water with a fork and brush the tops of the hand pies with this mixture.

  8. Transfer the hand pies to the prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until golden brown.

  9. While the hand pies are cooling completely to room temperature, add the powdered sugar to a bowl and add the water 1/2 teaspoon at a time just until a thick, drizzle-able glaze forms. The amount of water will vary depending on the brand of powdered sugar you're using - watch carefully!

  10. Add the glaze to a small zip-loc bag, snip off the corner, and drizzle the glaze over the hand pies once they've cooled completely. 

  11. Enjoy immediately or store in at airtight container for up to 2 days.
