I cannot believe that it is already February. This year is going really fast so far. I mean my baby is already almost 5 months old, which is crazy because it seems like just yesterday that he was born. At the same time though it feels like he has been part of our lives for a long time.
My 3 year old said the cutest thing at school yesterday according to his teachers. As part of their unit for Valentine’s Day they went around and had each kid say a reason that they loved their parents. My son said that he loved his parents because they gave him his baby brother Ashton. I thought that this was incredibly cute and it really shows that he loves his brother. We were worried how Aaron would react to not being an only child anymore before Ashton was born. It is so nice to have some validation that he loves his brother. Also it is always funny to see what kids say to answers to questions like that.
Also it has been nice seeing Aaron trying to play with his brother a little more and they both seem to have fun together. With Valentine’s Day coming up and my 3 year old having a party at his school, I thought it would be great to make a delicious treat for his parties. I decided that little hand pies filled with strawberries and white chocolate chips would be a great treat for Valentine’s Day.
These Strawberries and Cream Hand Pies were so delicious. I loved that in each bite you get strawberry pie filling mixed with melted white chocolate and buttery flaky pie crust on the top and bottom. It really doesn’t get much better than this. Plus I love that they are in bite sized hand pies so that I don’t have to feel as guilty as if I ate a whole slice of pie. Even though that doesn’t stop me from eating multiple hand pies.
These little hand pies are decorated with coarse sugar or sugar in the raw on the top and drizzled with melted white chocolate. I think these look so cute and are the perfect snack or dessert for Valentine’s Day. Really though, I would eat these any time of the year and I like that I don’t have to make a whole pie. My whole family devoured these and I can’t wait to make them again! I hope you enjoy them!
