Super Simple Mini Pies

Baby Shower Week continues!
Did you see these mini pies in the wrap-up post from last week? Wondering how to make them? Well, today I’m giving you the easy instructions on how to make them. I knew I wanted to make pies because my best friend has always preferred pie over cake :)

As I explained with the Almond Strawberry Cupcakes, I tried to keep things simple for the food. So I used refrigerated pie dough. The shower was right after Thanksgiving, so I lucked out and the pie crusts were on sale. I also decided to use pie filling instead of making my own. I chose apple and blueberry (which also happened to be on sale!)

These are so simple that I didn’t even make recipe card for them :)

Here are the instructions:

  1. Roll dough out onto flour sprinkled cutting board.
  2. Cut circles out of the dough (I used a white wine glass) and press into mini muffin tin.
  3. Spoon pie filling into muffin tins (only fill about 2/3 of the way).
  4. Cut out smaller circles of dough, then press onto filling and dough.
  5. If you prefer, use knife to cut small stripes of dough, then arrange in criss-cross pattern as top layer.

In case you’re wondering, we used the book Jamberry for the blueberry pies and The Giving Tree for the apple pies.
