Makes 6-7

 

1/3 cup favorite Trade Street jam flavor
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 pie crusts
1 egg
1 tbsp. water, plus extra for crimping


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place the pie crust on a cutting board, and cut out circles. Collect scrap pieces, and roll out again to stamp out more circles, making 12-14 circles total.

2. Fill half the circles with a tablespoon of the cream cheese, followed by a heaping teaspoon of jam. Using your finger, lightly wet the edges of the cut rounds with water.

3. Cover the tops with the remaining circles, pressing the two dough halves together. Crimp edges with a fork to seal.

4. In a bowl, beat the egg with water. Brush the tops of the pies with the egg wash. Use a small, sharp knife to cut a ventilation hole, or slit into the top of the pies.

5. Arrange the pies on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool completely before serving. Enjoy!
