These Strawberry Chocolate Hand Pies are truly the best! Buttery puff pastry loaded with strawberry jam and then drizzled with chocolate - make them heart shaped for Valentine’s Day as a treat!
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the puff pastry (see notes if you’re not using Wewalka brand) and using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut it into 6 equal hearts (see photo above for reference)
To the middle of 3 of the hearts, add about 1 tbsp of strawberry preserves and slightly spread it around.
Take the 3 hearts that you DIDN'T add preserves to and gently place them over top of the ones with the jam. Make sure that the edges line up and then crimp them with a fork to seal it. Make sure you crimp well to avoid jam leaking!
Use the fork to poke a few holes in the tops of the hearts.
If you have any leftover puff pastry, feel free to use a knife or pizza cutter to create tiny hearts or other shapes.
Lightly beat an egg in a small bowl to make egg wash and brush it over top of the pastries.
Add the parchment paper and the pastries onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown and crispy!
Remove onto a wire rack to let cool.
In a small bowl, add the chocolate chips and coconut oil and microwave in 30 second increments to melt until smooth and drizzle-able. Once the hearts are fully cooled, drizzle the chocolate over top of the pies.
If desired, add on fun sprinkles! Or some flaky sea salt. Enjoy!
If you are NOT using Wewalka puff pastry, which conveniently comes with parchment paper, make sure to 1) slice the dough on parchment paper and 2) make sure to use a silicon mat or parchment paper on your baking sheet!
