Bite-Sized Mini Cherry Pies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 16 mini pies

Bite-Sized Mini Cherry Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz package refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 21 oz can cherry pie filling (you will only use about 1/2 of this)
  • 2 T butter, melted
  • 1/2 t granulated sugar (I used cinnamon sugar on mine)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare mini-muffin pan by spraying cavities with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. On cutting board, roll out pie crust. With small round (I had flower shaped) cookie cutters cut dough into circles. Depending on size of your cutter, you will wind up with approximately 16-18 crusts.
  3. Place crusts gently into mini-muffin pan. Spoon 1 teaspoon of cherry pie filling or approximately 3 cherries into each crust.
  4. If you have left over pie crust, you may cut strips for lattice or use a smaller cookie cutter to make a small top "crust" for your mini pie. Place dough on top of cherries.
  5. Bake 12-15 minutes, Remove from oven & brush top crust with melted butter, then sprinkle with a tiny pinch of sugar. Place back into oven for approximately 5 minutes, watch carefully so edges don't start to burn.
  6. Cool thoroughly before serving.
