Ingredients

  • 2 pie crusts I used Pillsbury but you can also make your own pie crust
  • 1/2 cup fresh cherries pitted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • powdered sugar for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a nonstick baking mat and set aside.
  • On a work surface, roll out the first pie dough on a work surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Use a heart shaped cookie cutter to form 6-8 heart shapes. Arrange the heart cutouts on the baking sheet.
  • Repeat the cutouts with the second pie crust and add to the baking sheet to make 12-16 in total.
  • In a small bowl, mix the chopped cherries and sugar.
  • Add a tablespoon each of ricotta cheese and the cherry mixture onto half of the heart shapes. Place the remaining hearts on top and seal the edges tightly with your fingers.
  • Brush the tops with melted butter and bake for 18-22 minutes or until flakey and golden.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
