These easy Raspberry Hand Pies are a sweet mouthwatering raspberry filling with a flaky butter crust and glazed to perfection. Ready in no time, they are the perfect simple sweet treat.
Easy Raspberry Hand Pies
While I make a mean pie crust recipe, more often than not I lean towards the simpler recipes that use store-bought doughs and pasties. They taste so great and shave so much time off making them. Also, usually my baking sprees are last minute and wanted now.
These Pumpkin Pie Turnovers prove those steps saved produce great results. Simply amazing!
So when making pie desserts, I switch form classic homemade pies to many variations such as my Brownie S’mores Pie. I do like a good shortcut in the kitchen, as proven by these No-Bake Apple Pie Parfaits.
My point? Similar taste, less effort! We all like to save time without sacrificing taste.
For a simple Valentine’s Day dessert to summer treats and even a comforting fall and winter sweet – you can’t beat a good ‘ol hand pie. The perfect size to satisfy those cravings, they make the best companion to a cup of coffee, to a dinner finale.
While we are in the depths of January, I’m already dreaming about the upcoming affordable and plenty berry season. Luckily for us, we have canned berry pie filling to fill the void until the season finally arrives.
I tend to have many kinds of canned pie filling on hand at all times. It’s something I buy in multiples when on sale, they come in handy for so many recipes. For this recipe, I chose raspberry.

What is your favourite hand pie flavour?
- 1 can raspberry pie filling
- 2 refrigerated pie crusts, room temperature
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 3 tbsp milk
- 1 cup icing sugar
- Preheat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
- Using a 4" cookie cutter, cut five to six dough circles from each pie crust.
- Place the dough circles on the prepared baking sheet. Drop a tablespoon of pie filling into the center of each dough circle (no more). Fold the circle in half, and use a fork to seal the edges.
- Brush the top of each hand pie with the beaten egg. Bake for 10 minutes.
- Transfer the pies to a cooling rack with a sheet of parchment paper underneath it.
