Heart Pies for Valentine’s Day that Kids can Make | Toddlers in the Kitchen

Share the Sweetness

This was a truly fun and easy way to get Cash involved with making some Valentine’s Day Treats… since our Pudding Paint Heart Stamped Valentines didn’t work out {you’re shocked I know}

We were much more successful here with this super easy recipe I first saw pop on my Facebook feed actually. Which I quickly repinned from Frugal Coupon Living. I noticed, “Hey! I have that heart shaped cookie cutter!” Cash loves to cut Play-Doh so why not give it a try?

What you need:
Pie Crusts
Pie Filling
Cookie Cutter
1 Egg
1/2 Cup milk
Pastry brush
Parchment paper
Cookie Sheet
Surplus of cute sprinkles

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Heart Pies the Kids can Make

Lay out the dough on a rolling sheet and let your kiddo go to town cutting out hearts. Mashup and re-roll out the dough as many times as possible to get the most hearts. We got 8 hearts out of one crust. {You need an even number}

Step 2

Make your Egg Wash by mixing the 1 egg and 1/2 cup milk in a bowl and wisking it together.

Step 3

Line out the hearts on the parchment paper and “paint” the crusts with the egg wash, especially the edges. Then use a spoon to fill your precious Heart Pies with filling. I did this part to avoid the toddler mess. The egg wash helps the two crust layers stick together and not burn so much in the oven.
*Notice our Toddler cookie cutter misfire…. it’s totally cool, they’ll bake away!

Step 4

Cut a small X in another heart then place it over the pie filling, which turns it into the Heart Pie. Use a fork to scrunch the edges together like a crimper 😉

Step 5

Let your Toddler “paint” the tops again. He or she will do great after they anxiously watched you do the first round and now want their turn!

Step 6

Deal out a few small bowls of sprinkles and let your Toddler(s) decorate galore!

Step 7

Bake for 12 minutes or until the Heart Pie is golden brown

Step 8

Enjoy or gift the adorableness that is a Heart Pie!
