> 1/2 cup cherry preserves
> 2 tsp almond extract
> All-purpose flour, for dusting
> 1 (15 oz) box refrigerated pie crust
> 1 large egg
> 3 tbsp turbinado or granulated sugar
> 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
> 1 tbsp low-fat milk
> Pink food coloring, as needed


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment. In a small bowl, combine the cherry preserves and almond extract.
Lightly dust a work surface with the flour. Unroll 1 pie crust. Use a 3-inch heart-shaped cutter to cut out 10 hearts. Place hearts on prepared baking sheet. Repeat cutting out shapes from second pie crust.
In a small bowl, beat together the egg and 1 tsp water. To each of the 10 hearts on baking sheet, add 2 tsp cherry filling. Brush egg wash around edges of filled hearts and top with remaining dough hearts. Pinch and crimp edges with a fork to seal. Using a paring knife, cut slits in the top of each heart.
Brush remaining egg wash over pies and sprinkle with the turbinado sugar. Bake 10–15 min., until golden brown. Cool completely. In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar and milk until smooth. Add a few drops of pink food coloring until desired color is reached. Drizzle glaze over cooled hand pies and let set before serving.
