It is a mystery of the universe as to why, exactly, but everything is better in miniature. And while a traditional, store-bought pie crust isn't the most flavourful treat, we can offset that with the tangy taste of pineapple. Prepare in personal sizes, flip upside down, and serve a la mode and you've got a dish that won't soon be forgotten.

Measuring cup and spoons
Shortening to grease the cupcake pan

Pour your can of crushed or cut pineapple, juice and all, into your saucepan. Add cornstarch, sugar, and lemon juice and put on medium heat until the mixture thickens.

Set aside.

Step 3: Pie Crust Prep

Open up your pre-made pie crust and use your cookie cutter to cut out as many circles as you can. You'll need twelve to fill the 1 cupcake pan. Six of the circles need to be rolled thinner so that you can line each entire cup.

You can ball up and re-roll the scraps if you need more crust, or plan to try and fill up a second pan.
