Cranberry Almond Hand Pies

Prep: 20 min | Bake: 15 min | Yield: 20 small desserts


  • 1 (14.1 ounce) box refrigerated pie crust dough
  • 1/4 cup crumbled almond paste
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone cheese
  • 1/3 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll pastry on a lightly floured board and cut into circles with a 3-inch cutter. Reroll scraps to make 40 circles.
  3. Place equal amounts of almond paste, cheese and cranberry sauce on 20 circles, in that order. Lightly moisten edges with water and top with remaining circles. Press lightly to seal and crimp edges with a fork; place on baking sheet.
  4. Brush lightly with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Pierce each several times with a small, sharp knife and bake for 15 minutes or until pies are a light golden brown.
