Nutella Mini Pies with Fruit Filling

Nutella is one of my favorite foods, so I am always looking for ways to use it in recipes.  We came up with these yummy Nutella Mini Pies one year for a Valentine’s party and they were a hit at the party. I love that they remind me of dessert crepes with the nutella and fruit filling, yet they are not nearly as messy with the same great flavor as these mini pies!

The mini pies are very versatile, too, as you could use cookie cutters to cut out the pie shape into different shapes for different holidays – use heart cookie cutters for Valentine’s Day for heart-shaped mini pies. Or flower or egg shaped cookie cutters for spring mini pies around Easter time. There are a lot of possibilities with these mini pies. You can also use fresh fruit or jam inside, depending on what you prefer and the time of year, too.

I’ve made these with refrigerated pie crust dough as a time-saver, but if you have a favorite pie crust recipe, then definitely use that as they would be delicious with a homemade pie crust.

We have more ideas you can use for Valentines Day celebrations here too.

Nutella Mini Pies with a Fruit Filling:

Nutella Mini Pies are versatile desserts for parties for various holidays.

Ingredients::

Refrigerated Pie Crust Dough 

1 egg white (mix it with a little water so it’s easier to spread)

Nutella (or use your favorite chocolate candy or some chocolate chips)

Favorite jam or jelly 

Powdered Sugar

Directions:

Nutella Hand Pies with Fruit Filling - perfect dessert for any party

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees (or how high the directions for your pie crust state)

Make sure the refrigerated pie crust dough is thawed/softened.

Roll it out – you may want to use a roller to roll it out a bit thinner if you prefer these to not be too thick.

Take your cookie cutter  and cut out into the shape you desire – you will need a top & bottom shape for each pie. {We used a circle crinkle cutter here}

Add a little water to the egg white & stir. Then use a pastry brush to brush on egg whites on the inside of each of the shapes.

Making Nutella Mini Pies

Use your choice of chocolate on the inside – either spread Nutella around the dough or place a chocolate candy or a small handful of chocolate chips in the middle.  

If you’d rather use chocolate chips, you could just sprinkle a handful of them all around the dough shape to get the taste of chocolate throughout  the mini pie.

Add your favorite jelly / jam – I used our homemade strawberry freezer jam & put a spoonful in the center of each of the bottom hearts. {If you put it too close to the edges, it will leak out when you bake it.}

Place the 2nd piece of pie dough on top. Squeeze it together with the bottom dough.

Nutella with Fruit Mini Pies

Use a fork to crimp the edges, which help it stay together. Cut a vent in the top for baking.

Brush the top of the mini pie with the egg white.

Bake for 11 – 13 minutes (it will depend on your pie crust dough & your oven, though, so watch it carefully until it’s just turning brown}.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar right before serving – this gives them such a sweet look & an extra bit of sweetness too.

Mini Pie Pops:

Another option is to make these into mini pie pops. For example, if making these for Valentine’s Day, use heart-shaped cookie cutters to cut out the mini pies. Then add a lollipop stick  (make sure the dough is totally covering it) before you place in the oven so that it will bake around it. Package them up in little baggies & tie a pink or red ribbon around it with a tag to give as a treat at a Valentine party! An easy & frugal treat for the kiddos!
