What is it about pie that conjures up images of home and warmth and grandma’s kitchen table?

It’s most likely because pies are just so comforting. Whether classic apple, tart cherry or smooth pumpkin, pies are perfect for any occasion and Valentine’s Day is no exception. Instead of a whole pie, I’ve created heart topped Nutella and Blackberry Hand Pies as a special treat to share with the ones you love.

 I can’t think of a better treat to pay homage to Valentine’s Day and National Pie Day  than making a pie. Pies are truly as American as well…apple pie!
