These little jam filled pastries are an easy and great gift to make for that special someone this Valentine’s day.  I’m calling them SWEETIE PIES! They are made with the pie dough recipe listed below but no one will know if you use store bought pie crust. We used homemade peach jam for half the hearts and blueberry jam for the other half.

Grab a heart shaped cookie cutter and you’re good to go!

The fun part is in the packaging and hopefully you have some ribbon and packages hanging around from the holidays that will fit the theme.

I had a little red chinese take-out box from Michael’s crafts and some baker’s twine, red ribbon and clear packaging for the Sweetie Pies.

This next photo is a SWEETIE PIE packaged up in it’s own cellophane bag with a ribbon and tag.  I had bags from a kitchen supply store but I’m pretty sure you can buy these from Michael’s also.
