S’mores Hand Pies Recipe

One of my favorite things about summer coming up, is the fact that we can have bonfires in the backyard. Can anyone relate?

I love the relaxing crackle of a fire on a nice summer night. But let’s be honest, what I love the most is the s’mores that tend to go hand in hand with bonfire nights.

I am a total sucker for the gooey marshmallows, melted chocolate, and graham cracker goodness. Who isn’t? I mean, they are called s’mores for a reason!

Alright, now I’ll be super honest. Sometimes, I just can’t wait for the bonfires to make myself an ooey gooey, delicious s’more. Luckily, with this s’mores hand pie recipe, I don’t have to!

With this recipe, I can make amazing mini s’mores dessert pies in the oven in a quick 15-20 minutes! It like like your own personal mini pies! 

They are quite simple to put together and don’t require too much prep or ingredients. I typically have most of the ingredients on hand! The one ingredient I always have to make sure to pick up is the marshmallow cream. You’ll find the rest of the ingredients needed below.

When cooked to golden brown perfection, I’m willing to say that these might be just as delicious as classic s’mores. The crunchy graham cracker crumb mixture and melted butter spread on the outside of the dough makes it nice and crispy. It’s almost like pie crust! I may like it better than graham crackers…

Read on to see how to make these mouthwatering, gooey marshmallow and chocolatey mini hand pie desserts!

What is a hand pie?

A hand pie is a delicious mini pie pastry! You make them using refrigerated pie crust dough, which are cut in small circles. They are then filled with either sweet or savory filling. Then they are sealed up by crimping the edges together. Then they are either baked, air-fried or even deep fried!

Ingredients

  • 1 box refrigerated pie crust dough, room temperature
  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs
  • ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • ½ cup marshmallow crème
  • ¼ cup mini marshmallows
  • 6 ounces chopped chocolate bar (like hershey’s)

How to Make S’mores Hand Pies

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees and let it heat up while you prep. Line your cookie sheet with parchment paper or I love my (affiliate link) silicone baking mat!

Tip: You may want to do this step on a lightly floured surface. Unroll the pie crust and using a 3 inch round cutter, cut eight round dough circles from each crust. When you’re finished, you will have a total of 16 rounds.

Next, In a shallow container (I like to use a pie plate) mix together the graham cracker crumbs and the ¼ cup of sugar.

brush pie crust with butter and dip in graham cracker crust

Brush both sides of eight of the rounds with the melted butter. Then, dip them into the crumb mixture coating both sides and pressing the mixture lightly onto the round. Place these eight rounds on the parchment-lined baking sheet. You won’t need the other 8 until later, so just let those sit for now.

In a small bowl, mix together the marshmallow créme, 2 tablespoons of sugar, mini marshmallows, and chopped chocolate pieces. You can save a few of the chocolate pieces to add on top of the filling if desired.

place mixture on top of pie crust

Place a heaping tablespoon of filling onto each of the rounds that are on the cookie sheet. If you saved a few chocolate pieces, now is the time to place them on top of the filling.
PRO-TIP: Use a 1.5 inch (or 1 Tablespoon) sized cookie scoop to scoop out and drop the filling onto the center of the pie dough rounds.

Now take the remaining eight rounds and brush them with the melted butter on both sides. Then, coat them in the graham cracker mixture, as you did for the other 8 rounds. Place them on top of the rounds with the filling and pinch the edges together to seal in the filling.
PRO-TIP: Use the end of a fork to crimp and seal the edges.

Bake the hand pies for about 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm or at room temperature.

Store covered in the refrigerator. If you’re serving after storing them in the fridge give them a little warm-up to serve the hot! They are much better that way.

Tips for Making Mini S’mores Hand Pies

  • Spray your cookie scoop with a light coating of cooking spray prior to scooping out the marshmallow creme mixture. This makes the process much easier.
  • You can freeze your assembled hand pies prior to baking, directly on your parchment-lined cookie sheet for 30 mins, then remove from the cookie sheet and store in a freezer zip bag for up to 2 months. When ready to bake, remove from bag, place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, and bake at 400* for 15-20 mins. No need to thaw first.
  • Use the tips of a fork to crimp down and seal the edges of the hand pies prior to baking making sure not to let any of the filling leaks out.

How to Store and Freeze

  • It’s best to store your mini s’mores hand pies in the refrigerator when you’re all finished with them… but, that’s assuming there is any leftovers! I’m willing to bet that they will all be gone in a flash!
  • When storing them in the fridge, you’ll also want to cover them. I usually just put mine in a Tupperware or airtight container, but you could also use a pan and put some plastic wrap over it!
  • You can freeze your assembled hand pies prior to baking directly on your parchment-lined cookie sheet for 30 minutes. Then remove them from the cookie sheet and store them in a freezer zip lock bag for up to 2 months. When ready to bake, remove from bag, place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet, and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.  

Make sure you sneak one of these straight out of the oven. That’s when I think they are the best, because the chocolate chips and marshmallow cream are nice and warm and melted. Plus, if you don’t, there’s a chance you might not get any. They are that good! They usually don’t last long around our house.

    Loved these! Thank you so much! Made a bright spot in my kiddos day! Only thing I didn’t have on hand was the pie crust and they were still plentiful in the stores.

  2. These are cute! The printed recipe shows mini marshmallows and no cream cheese, but the video shows cream cheese and no mini marshmallows. Which is the best?

    1. Hi Kimberly – Thanks so much for your comment – we recently updated the recipe and forgot to take down the video. Follow the recipe card instructions.
