Hosting a Valentine’s Day gathering for friends or looking for an easy recipe to bake with the kiddos? These heart-shaped hand pies are a crowd pleaser and a great way to add more love to a party.

First, prepare the hand pies’ filling on the stove. Raspberries, lemon, and spices give these treats warmth and freshness. Cut the dough with a three-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. If you don’t have one, you can make a cardboard stencil and use a knife to trace out the shapes.

Before popping the hand pies into the oven, brush on a coat of egg wash and sprinkle turbinado sugar to give the pies extra crunch and charm.
