Star-Shaped Berry Hand Pies



  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the berries, sugar, lemon juice and salt to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce to a simmer, and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until berries break down and are juicy.
  3. Gradually add the cornstarch while stirring constantly. Cook for 3-5 minutes, or until the mixture is thickened. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out the pie dough.
  6. Using a 3-inch or 4-inch star-shaped cookie cutter, cut dough into stars.
  7. Spoon 2 teaspoons of pie filling onto the centers of half the stars. Top with the remaining stars. Using a fork, crimp the edges of the hand pies to seal. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.
  8. Whisk together egg and water and brush over each hand pie. Using a knife, cut a small slit in every hand pie to allow steam t escape during baking.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden-brown. Allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  10. In a small microwave safe bowl, microwave the chocolate for 30 seconds and mix. Continue to microwave for 12-second intervals until melted and smooth.
  11. Drizzle over cooled hand pies.
