Strawberry Pocket Pies for 2
-1 15 oz. package of refrigerated pie crust dough
-1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling
-2 tsp. cornstarch
-1 cup fresh strawberries
-1 egg, beaten
Start by rolling out your dough into a 9 inch circle. Then use the back of the pie press to cut heart shapes out of the pastry dough. (If you don't have this tool, use a heart shaped cookie cutter.)
Place a piece of heart shaped dough on each half of the crimped side of the press and push down in the center slightly to make a place for the strawberry filling. To make the filling add 1/3 cup sugar and 2 tsp. cornstarch in a small bowl and stir together. Mash strawberries until you have about a cup. Add 2 tablespoons of strawberries to one half of the heart.
