Vegan Heart Pies

It's starting to get cold outside but that's okay because I love an excuse to cozy up with the one's I love.

I'm a big fan of using other recipes that I find for my vegan baking. Sometimes it's easier than the trial and error method. This is where I got the recipe for the vegan pie crust OR you can use store bought pie crust.

Ingredients for filling:

  • pint of blueberries

  • pint of raspberries

  • 1/4 cup of sugar

  • squeeze of lemon

  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 tbsp of Earth Balance vegan butter

Directions:

  • Put butter in a pan on medium heat.

  • Mix together berries, lemon juice, sugar and vanilla in bowl then add to pan.

  • Sautee for approx 5 minutes then set aside.

  • Roll out pie crust dough.

  • Use heart shaped cookie cutter to make heart shapes in dough.

  • Place half of the heart shaped dough on wax paper on a baking sheet.

  • Instead of an egg wash you can just use a soy milk/butter combination to wet the edges of the hearts.

  • Place a small amount of filling in the centre of the dough, don't over fill.

  • Use the rest of the hearts to cover the filling.

  • Make a slit on top of each filled heart and press and crimp edges.

  • Brush sealed pie with soy milk/butter combo and dust with sparkling sugar.

  • Bake on 400 for approx 15 minutes or until crust is browned.

  • Allow to cool.

Enjoy these yummy treats with the ones you love!
