  • 2 Refrigerated deep dish pie crusts
  • 1 Cup small-diced strawberries approximately ½ pint
  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon corn starch
  • Zest of one medium lemon 2-3 tsp
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoon cream or milk
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 teaspoon lemon juice


  • Mix the diced strawberries, granulated sugar, corn starch and lemon zest in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Unroll the pastry and cut each pie crust into 8 rounds with a 3.5-inch round cutter (or any shape/size you like). You should end up with 16 rounds.
  • Place 1 tablespoon of strawberry mixture in the middle of 8 of the pastry rounds. Top with the remaining pastry rounds, then use a fork to seal around the edges.
  • Poke holes in the top of each hand pie with a fork.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the egg and cream. Brush over the hand pies.

Air Fryer

  • Place the hand pies in a single layer of an air fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 350°F and cook 8-9 minutes until golden brown. Work in batches if needed.
  • Let the hand pies cool, then mix the powdered sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl until it is smooth and runny. You can make it as thick or thin as you like.
  • Drizzle over the hand pies.


  • Use fresh strawberries, not frozen ones!
  • Make sure strawberries are washed and completely dry before hulling.
  • Space them out evenly in the air fryer to allow for better air circulation.
