Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies | Keto | Gluten-Free | Lowcarb

Updated: Feb 5

Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies made with a flaky buttery crust and filled with cherry pie filling are sure to wow all pie lovers. When it comes to keto / lowcarb desserts, pie is my favorite. I like cherry, blueberry, lemon, raspberry, etc. What's nice about these hand pies is you can fill them with your favorite filling. Have fun and fill each pie with a different flavor! flavor! An assortment of hand pies would make the ultimate dessert tray for any gathering. These heart shaped hand pies are really simple to make. I make with my favorite gluten-free lowcarb pie crust, cut out heart shapes with a large cookie cutter, and then fill with sugar-free cherry pie filling (or any filling). This sweet pie crust is made with almond flour, coconut flour, butter, cream cheese, and sweetener. The dough can be sticky so I use my Gourmet Easy silicone baking mat and stainless rolling pin to make rolling out the dough easy. Make these delicious hand pies for Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Labor Day, etc. Change things up by using different shaped cookie cutters.

Keto Cherry Hand Pies made with almond flour

Heart Shaped Cherry Hand Pies


1 cup almond flour

2 Tbsp coconut flour

2 Tbsp Lakanto Classic Monkfruit Sweetener

1/4 tsp

1/2 cup butter, chilled and cubed

1 oz cream cheese, softened

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vinegar (apple, white, or rice)

1 can sugar-free cherry pie filling

egg wash for topping



1 .Place almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, xanthan gum, and salt in a mixing bowl. Whisk together

2. Cut the butter & cream cheese into the flour with a pastry blender, working mixture until the flour has a coarse, mealy texture similar to fresh bread crumbs

3. Mix in the egg and vinegar. Using a rubber spatula, press the dough into itself. The crumbs should begin to form larger clusters. If you pinch the dough will start to hold together

4. Remove dough from bowl, place in a mound on a clean surface. Work the dough to form a ball. Form into a disk and wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour

Hand Pies:

1. Place pie dough on your baking mat. Roll pie crust into 1/8 thickness. Cut hearts out with cookie cutter

2. Transfer half the hearts to a baking sheet. Place cherry pie filling in the center of each heart

3. Place the remaining hearts on top of the cherry filled heart. Gently press the edges

4. Using a fork crimp the edges to seal. Its okay if some filling falls out

5. Brush the top of the hearts with more egg wash. Using a paring knife, cut two small slits in each heart

6. Bake at 350 degrees for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Nutritional Information: coming ...
