Try to buy the best brand of orange marmalade you can. One with visible and plentiful gratings of orange peel. And, we’re taking the easiest step of all. We’re going to be using Dole Sunshine’s frozen cherries! Now, if you haven’t tried them, you are in for a tasty experience because these cherries are large, plump, sweet and harvested and packed immediately at the peak of ripeness.

Crunchy Cherry Hand Pies

Yield: Makes: About 8

The first bites of these cherry hand pies will bring out the truth! Just like George Washington said, I cannot tell a lie! They're stupendous!


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • 3 (3x9”) strips of puff pastry, thawed
  • ½ cup flour
  • 4 to 4 ½ cups pitted dark cherries, slightly thawed, about 8-10 cherries per hand pie
  • 10 tsp. orange marmalade, heaping teaspoons
  • 5 tsp. butter, chilled, salted, cut into 8-9 pieces
  • 1 egg + 1 Tbl. water, beaten
  • 5 tsp. sugar


  1. Place the flour on a clean surface and make a big circle with it. Lay one puff pastry strip on the flour. Roll it out to about a 5 x 12” size. Cut it into three large pieces.
  2. Put about 8 to 10 cherries in the middle. Add a heaping teaspoon dollop of the orange marmalade and a piece of butter. Fold over the long sides and pinch together (making a ‘seam’). Fold the opposite sides and use a fork to seal the pastry dough.
  3. Place (seam side down) on a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Repeat with the remaining pastry dough.
  4. Use a pastry brush and brush the tops with the egg wash. Sprinkle with equal amounts of sugar.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 oven about 29-32 minutes or until golden brown.
