Perhaps sometimes you would prefer to satisfy your sweet tooth with a small treat rather than an extra large over indulgent dessert. This tiny pie packs a tasty punch to satisfy your sweet cravings. Did I mention, it can all be done in 25 mins (once you have all the ingredients)! What are you waiting for?....lets get our pie on!

Step 1: Ingredients:

1 Package of frozen pie dough

1 can of cherry pie filling

1 straw

Package of 2 1/3 mini pie tins

2 3/8 biscuit cutter

Step 2: Cut...Fill...Crimp

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Gently unroll one sheet of frozen pie dough.
  3. Using the 2 3/8 biscuit cutter, cut out pie rounds (2 per tin).
  4. Place rounds inside a lightly greased tin, gently pressing dough into the bottom of the tin.
  5. Open Cherry pie filling and generously place a heaping spoon into your pie tin.
  6. Squeeze the end of a straw firmly until an oval shape is achieved.
  7. Press straw into the second pie round (top covering), create a steam valve to allow your pies to breathe. Get creative!
  8. Place tops onto the pies and using a fork, crimp the edges of the pies.
  9. OPTIONAL: for a shiner crust, whisk one egg with a tablespoon water. Brush pies with egg wash. Sprinkle course sugar for an added texture.

Step 3: Bake and Wait!

IMPORTANT: Put prepared pies on a silicone sheet (foil or parchment) to catch pie spill-over. Place your mini pies in a toaster oven or standard oven. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 4: Take a Bite!

Let your pies cool for at least 5 minutes. Gently release pies from tins. For an extra cute presentation, serve on a toy tea set.

Enjoy!

    Hello Penolopy! You can buy them from Amazon. They usually come in a pack of 100. I keep them around the house for meals that require dipping sauces! You can also try different pie fillings, apple, pumpkin, lemon. Perfectly sized after a big meal.....
