Introduction: Mini Pies W/ Cream Cheese, Strawberries & Kiwi

About: Currently a substitute teacher taking a break from working in the salon. love cooking and making crafty things

I made this recipe up as I went along.  There were some strawberries in the fridge and I wasn't sure how to use them up.  I found some more ingredients that I thought would go good together and started mixing them.  
Pie Crust:
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup of flour
1 pinch of salt
3 Tbs of water (add more water if it's too dry)
Filling:
1/2 a package of cream cheese( mix separately)
1 cup of chopped strawberries
1 kiwi (skinned and chopped) 
1/8 cup of sugar

Step 1: Making the Pie Crust

Mix the butter, flour, salt, and water.  The butter mixes easier if you cut it up first.  You can add more water if it's too dry.  When you are done mixing the ingredients knead it into a ball shape and sprinkle flour around it to keep it from sticking.  Flatten it down in a bowl and stick it in the fridge with a cloth over the top until it's ready to be used. 

Step 2: Making the Filling

In a separate bowl mix the strawberries, kiwi, and sugar.  

Step 3: Making the Mini Pies

Divide the pie crust into 12 equal amounts and roll them out on a floured surface.  Fill each section of the cupcake tray.  Divide the cream cheese up and fill the bottom of each pie with cream cheese.

Step 4: Getting It in the Oven

Scoop the filling equally into every pie.  Cook in the oven at 350 for 25 mins.
