Pie in a Cupcake

I was inspired to make these by the cherpumple made by Charles Phoenix. It sounded like an amazing dessert. The only drawback being that one slice is too large for me to eat in one sitting. I decided to make something a little more manageable.

Step 2: Make the pies

First mix the pumpkin pie ingredients. Put the pumpkin pie mix, condensed milk, and two large eggs in a bowl and mix.

Roll out the pie crust. Then use a small cookie cutter to cut circles out of the dough. Open up the mini cupcake wrappers and place the dough circles on them. Then place the cupcake wrappers with the dough in them in the mini cupcake pan.

Using a spoon fill the crusts with pumpkin pie mixture, cherry pie filling, or apple pie filling. You will want to cut the apples up some so they fit in the crusts. 

Take some more circles of crust and place on top of the cherry and apple pies. Press them down along the edges with a fork and trim any excess dough with a small knife.

Place the pies in the oven for about 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
That is really clever! I love that! I would like the mini apple pie cupcakes :)

Have you tried baking them together at the same time instead of doing the pies first?

No, I have not tried that. Although I have thought about frying the pies.
