Hands-on time 30 mins
Total time 1 hr, 5 mins
Yield Makes 10 pies
Keep tops whole, if desired; cut 3 slits in each for steam to escape.

Ingredients

  • 2 (6-oz.) packages fresh raspberries
  • 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 (14.1-oz.) packages refrigerated piecrusts, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Gently toss together first 5 ingredients.

  2. Unroll 2 piecrusts on a lightly floured surface. Cut crusts into 10 rounds using a 4-inch round cutter. Fit into 10 lightly greased 3-inch fluted tart pans; press into edges. Spoon berry mixture into pans; dot with butter.

  3. Unroll remaining 2 piecrusts on lightly floured surface. Cut into 10 (4-inch) rounds. Cut 3 (1-inch) stars from top of each round. Place rounds over filling in each tart pan; press into fluted edges to seal. Top each tart with 3 stars, leaving cutouts open for steam to escape. Freeze pies on an aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan 10 minutes.

  4. Meanwhile, whisk together egg yolk and 1 Tbsp. water. Brush tops of pies with egg mixture; sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. sugar.

  5. Bake pies on jelly-roll pan at 425° for 24 to 26 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown.
