Recipe Card


  • 2 sheets, ready rolled frozen short crust pastry
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/3 cup granulated or castor sugar
  • 2 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Finely chopped candied ginger, optional
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Raw sugar, to sprinkle


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350℉.

  • Step 2

    To make the filling, mix together strawberries, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and ginger (if using) in a mixing bowl. Leave aside.

  • Step 3

    Thaw the short-crust pastry for 10 minutes, then using a round cookie cutter cut out circles of your desired size. You will need two for each mini pie, one for the top and one for the base. For the tops, using a heart shaped cutter cut a small portion from the center. Place the base circle on a disposable aluminium pie liner.

  • Step 4

    Fill the base circle with 1 tbsp of strawberry filling. Close with the other pastry circle with the heart design. Brush with a little egg and sprinkle with raw sugar.

  • Step 5

    Bake for 15 minutes or until tops are golden and cooked through.
