Patriotic Berry Hand Pies! These handheld, berry-filled beauties are the ultimate Memorial Day dessert or 4th of July dessert with their red, white and blue details and star-spangled cutouts! They're easy to make and even easier to eat, making it ideal for casual celebrations and backyard barbecues.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.  Using a rolling pin, roll out both sheets of dough to 9x9 inches, trimming the edges to make them a perfect square.

Step 2

Using a sharp knife, cut the dough into 3 strips, each 3 inches wide. Cut each of those strips into three 3 inch pieces, leaving you with nine 3 inch squares. Repeat with other sheet to get 19 squares. Place them on the prepared pan.

Step 3

Punch out a star shape in the center of 9 dough squares.  Spread 1 tablespoon of strawberry or blueberry jam in the center of the other 9 squares,, leaving a 1/2 inch border. Top the jam with a few berries.

Step 4

Beat an egg & 1 tablespoon of water to make egg wash.  Wet the border of each squares with egg wash. Top each with a  star-punched square;  gently push down around the edges.

Step 5

Use a fork to crimp the edges of each pie to seal. Brush the top of each pie with the remaining egg wash. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Step 6

Whisk powdered sugar & water or milk in a small bowl to make a glaze.  Drizzle over cooled pies. Allow to set slightly before serving.
