Blank Space Broken Heart Pies

Blank Space CakeWhether you’re single or taken, celebrate Valetine’s (or GALentine’s) Day with these sweet and tasty pies inspired by the cake/knife scene in Taylor Swift’s Blank Space video.

Aside from the simple ingredients, you’ll need a pie press to create the heart space (I purchased this one for $6 at Target).

Blank Space CakeIf you don’t like, or you’re allergic to strawberries, you can use raspberries or cherries instead (fresh or frozen) to achieve the same blood red color.

I also opted for store bough pie crust to save time, but you can always make your own instead.

Serve the pies with some extra filling drizzled on top, a rose, and a large chef’s knife 😉Blank Space Taylor SwiftStrawberry Broken Heart Pies

  • 4 c. strawberries
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 3/4 c. water
  • 3 tbsp. cornstarch
  • lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust


  • Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small sauce pan, stirring constantly and slightly crush the berries with a spoon.
  • After 2 minutes, remove from heat, pour into bowl and cool.


  • Roll out pie dough and cut two pieces using the bottom of the press as a pattern.
  • Using your fingers, press dough into the mold and top with 2 tablespoons of filling (within 1/2 in. of edges).
  • Brush dough edges with egg wash and lay second piece of dough on top.
  • Close press to crimp edges and seal pie, and trim excess dough if necessary. 
  • Brush top of pie with egg wash and pierce with a fork.
  • Bake 18-20 minutes at 400° or until golden.
