If you love dessert, then you’ll love these Heart-Shaped Raspberry Pies. Dessert doesn’t have to mean derailing your healthy diet—and this festive recipe will keep you on track. Whip up a batch of these mini Raspberry Pies for a Valentine’s Day treat you can make all year round.

Complete with a homemade crust and complemented by a homemade raspberry filling, this recipe is just as delicious as your calorie-filled favorite. To make this delicious dessert, simply combine flour, sugar, butter and water to create a dough-like consistency. Refrigerate this crust for two hours and while refrigerating, whip up the filling by combining raspberries, corn starch and lemon juice. Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out on a flour-covered surface. Cut 12 hearts (or your shape of choice!) out of the dough and place on a greased baking sheet. Add a spoonful of the homemade raspberry filling to six of the hearts and top each with another heart-shaped cutout, pressing down the edges to seal the raspberry filling in the pie. Pro tip: Use a fork to crimp the sides and cut a “+” into the center of each mini pie. Top each pie with egg wash and pop in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the sides are set.

Made with love and straight from the heart (no pun intended!), each of these pies clocks in at just 164 calories each. On your Nutrisystem meal plan, each serving counts as one SmartCarb and three Extras. And remember to log each pie in the NuMi App to ensure you’re staying on track with your weight loss goals.
