Tart-but-sweet lingonberries paired with a cream cheese filling, wrapped in pie dough and baked to perfection. These yummy little Lingonberries & Cream Hand Pies will have people fighting over the last one (and the first one).
I participated in Mom Blog Tour Winter Fancy Food Show (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Felix products to facilitate my review, but my opinions and the recipe are my own.
Ever had a lingonberry? They’re pretty fantastic. Similar to cranberries, they’re much smaller and juicier – and delicious! Tart, but sweet – they’re perfect in jams and jellies (due to natural amounts of pectin). Known as a “superberry” and found in Sweden – they’re perfect for these pies.
Lingonberries & Cream Hand Pies
The need for a fork doesn’t exist and they’re perfect to put on trays for easy grabbing (hence the name “hand-pie). My co-workers thought so, anyway. The boss too, apparently,
I’ve used cream cheese with a touch of powdered sugar to pair with the jam in these pies and it works well. A touch of tart, a little sweet wrapped in delicious buttery pie dough. Brushed with a little egg and baked, ready to eat in about 20 minutes.
Yum, right?! (Right!)
Easy to make
You don’t have to get fancy with the shapes or decorative edges on these pies, they’ll still taste JUST as good if you get a little rustic. You shouldn’t skip the knife cuts in the top though, it’s essential to ensure the pies don’t, well – explode.
That would be sad.

I’m using a special ingredient in these pies – Felix’s Lingonberry Jam. These jams are the real deal – you can pronounce everything in the ingredients (probably why they won an award). There’s a GIVEAWAY BELOW so you can try it for yourself!!
These are PERFECT for a dessert, or a mid morning snack, and great for sharing. They taste just as good room temperature as they do warm.
I hope you love them as much as I do!
