Are these muffin tin mini pies the absolute cutest thing ever? Yes, yes they are! What’s more, they are also arguably the perfect ratio of crust to fruit filling in every bite 👌🏻
No worries if you’re a novice baker (or one that’s in a hurry!), these pies can easily be made with a few rolls of premade pie dough and canned pie filling. Here’s how:
First, choose a fruit filling (or 2!). I made these as a Fourth of July dessert and filled them with blueberries. I’m already imagining how delicious they will be using the apples from our fall orchard trip.
I rolled out the pie dough on a floured counter and used a 4″ round cookie cutter to cut 12 circles. Each circle fills one cup of non-stick muffin tin by pushing it into the sides and bottom.
Fill each crust 3/4 full with fruit filling.
Using the leftover dough, I cut stars with mini cookie cutters and set them atop the fruit filling.
While you can brush a traditional egg wash on the top of the crust, I skipped this step due to my son’s egg allergy. Instead, I sprinkled sugar to finish the pies.
The pies cooked for about 15 minutes before I increased the temperature to 425 for an additional few minutes until the top and edges turned golden brown.
Let cool and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
