Mini Pies

One thing I love about winter is baking.  You are going to want to keep these ingredients on hand for a snowy day inside.  My favorite thing about these mini pies is that they are so easy to make, my 6 & 8 year old can make them almost completely unassisted.  I also love that they pack easily in lunch boxes.  I will tell you how to make these and then you will balk at just how easy they really are. 

Roll out 2 refrigerated pie crusts.  I just like to roll them a little thinner than they already are.  Using a biscuit cutter or a round cup, cut small circles out of the pie crust.  You can make your circles any size you want.  Get as many circles as you can from each piece.  Form a ball and roll it out again to use all of your dough.  Next scoop small amount of pie filling into the center of 1/2 of the circle cut outs.  Cover with remaining circles.  Using a fork, seal the edges of your mini pies.  Crack an egg into a small bowl and whisk with 1 Tablespoon of water.  Brush over pies and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Place pies on parchment paper.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

What you need:

  • 1 box (containing 2) refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 can of pie filling ( your choice)
  • 1 egg
  • Cinnamon & Sugar
  • Parchment paper
