Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies

Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies

Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies feature a cheesecake and lemon curd filling all wrapped up in puff pastry, drizzled with a simple sweet glaze! It’s a summery dessert recipe that’s easy to make in about 30 minutes.

The worst part of spring is the pollen. The best part, of course, is the bounty of spring and summer desserts! I’ll circle back to the pumpkin and peppermint treats in a few months. For now, I’m excited to get my fill of all things fruity, bright, and oh so summery… like these lemon cheesecake hand pies!
These lemon hand pies are easy to make in just a little over 30 minutes with a handful of inexpensive ingredients. I love enjoying one (or two) with my morning coffee once the sun’s out and I need a little something sweet to start my day. Lemon curd and lemon zest come together to create the most delightful lemony flavor in each bite.

Cream cheese and heavy whipping cream are the two ingredients that create the best creamy consistency and flavor that’s reminiscent of cheesecake. Honestly, after mixing everything together, it’s pretty impossible to resist licking the spoon. The filling is so sweet, zesty and creamy!

  • 17.3 oz (2) sheets of puff pastry
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 Tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp white granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3-4 oz lemon curd
  • Little bit of water in a small bowl to seal pastry
  • 1 egg for brushing pastry

  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream warmed
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
