Picture of Baby Cherry Pies!
Just like full-sized cherry pie, these baby versions are topped with a mini lattice. You could also use a crumb topping, but this little touch makes them even cuter! The tart cherries in the filling are just delicious and make these baby pies perfect.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

Picture of You'll Need. . .
- crust (see next step)

(for the filling)
- 2 cups frozen tart cherries (thawed, pitted, with liquid)
- .25-.5 cups white sugar (depending on how tart your cherries are, and how sweet you want your pies)
- 3 tablespoons corn starch

- medium bowl
- small bowl and spoon
- wooden spoon or rubber spatula
- measuring cups and spoons
- heavy bottomed sauce pan
- muffin tins
- round cutter about 3 inches in diameter
- round cutter about 1.5 inches in diameter
- sheet pan with parchment paper
woohoo! :D You've just solved two problems at once for me: how to make enough pie for my husband's office to celebrate Pi Day (his pack of engineers and rocket scientists may not *know* they want to celebrate Pi Day yet, but they *will*...), and how to transport the pies to them with a minimum of breakage (leave 'em in the muffin tins!).

I salute you, Lady. You rock.

Thanks! They really are great (especially when they're made with Michigan cherries like this batch was).
