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
