Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies

Lemon Cheesecake Hand Pies Recipe 🤩🤩
For the Pie Dough :
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup cold water

For the Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon lemon zest

For the Glaze:
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

To make the pie dough, mix together the flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.
Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse sand.
Pour the cold water into the bowl and stir with a fork until the dough comes together in a rough ball.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead it a few times until it comes together in a smooth ball.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 days.
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
To make the filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar together in a medium bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Using a biscuit cutter or the rim of a glass, cut out the dough into circles. You should get about 8-12 circles, depending on the size of your cutter.
Place a spoonful of the cream cheese filling onto the center of each dough
