These Nutella pie crust dough love note envelopes are not only adorable, they're equally tasty! You only need a handful of ingredients to make these fun treats for your next tea party, Valentine’s Day or any day!
The pie crust dough is folded like a small envelope and filled with whatever your heart desires! I like to use Nutella combined with banana and strawberries, I've also used jam, and have even made savoury ones with pizza sauce & cheese! In that case, we sprinkle them with parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning instead of powdered sugar, right after they come out of the oven. The possibilities are endless!
One of my favorite things about this recipe is how simple it is. We always have so much fun making them, they're so easy and so cute. My son is a huge fan of these, he believes that these pie envelopes are way better than any Valentine’s Day card! Give my recipe a try, you'll love how easy & tasty these are!
Pie crust dough (I use Pillsbury)
Nutella or jam
Thinly sliced strawberries/bananas (optional)
1 egg (for egg wash)
Powdered sugar, or icing, sprinkles
Heat the oven to 350°F.
Unroll your pie crust dough, flatten using a rolling pin. Using a knife or pizza cutter to cut out 4 small rectangle shapes (about 3-4 inches tall) from the pie crust dough.
From the leftover dough pieces, cut out small heart shapes and set aside.
In the center of the rectangle, spoon 2 teaspoons of Nutella or jam. Add thinly sliced fruits, if you'd like.
Fold the bottom corner up, then fold the two side corners into the center of the rectangle over the fillings, and place the heart cut-out on top. (Leave the top corner open. Some filling will show.)
Crack an egg into a bowl and stir with a fork or whisk. Brush egg wash on top of envelopes and place them in oven.
Bake until they're golden brown (this takes about 10 minutes) and sprinkle with powdered sugar or sprinkles.
