Mini Pies in a Cupcake Tin

A fun way to make a mini version of your favorite pie!

Ingredients

2
(2-count) packages Pillsbury™ Refrigerated Pie Crusts
4
cups or 2 (21-ounce) cans pie filling, any variety
1
egg, whisked

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • 2 Roll out a single pie crust onto a flat surface. Using a large cookie cutter or any circular lid, cut out a 4-inch circle of dough. Press each dough circle into the bottom of a muffin tin cup, leaving a tiny rim of dough sticking out at the top. Repeat with remaining dough to fill all 12 muffin cups.
  • 3 Fill each cup until nearly full, about 1/4 cup, with pie filling.
  • 4 Use the remaining dough to create a top crust to cover each pie. To make a lattice crust, use a knife or pizza cutter to cut out thin strips of dough, then lace together to form a lattice. To make a standard crust, cut out a circle of dough just large enough to cover the top of the bottom crust. Cut a few small slits into the crust. Then using your fingers, gently press the top crust onto the bottom crust until they stick together and no gaps remain.
  • 5 Use a pastry brush to brush the tops of each pie with the whisked egg. Then bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until the crust is lightly golden and the filling begins to bubble.
  • 6 Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 15 minutes. Then very carefully with a knife, loosen the edges of each pie and gently lift out from the muffin tin. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate.

How to Make Mini Pies in a Cupcake Tin

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Your favorite pie in "mini me" size. So cute, so easy -- and so delish!


Oh my goodness.  These Mini Pies in a Cupcake Tin may be one of the cutest recipes I’ve ever made!

We here at Tablespoon were inspired by Bella at Adventuress Heart to try making “mini” versions of our favorite pies.  And oh my goodness, they turned out to be adorable!

All you need for the quick and easy version are some Pillsbury pie crusts, a few cups of your favorite pie filling, and an egg – and you’re ready to go!  These little guys do take a wee bit of time to prep, especially if you are making lattice crusts.  But the sky’s the limit with how many ways you can customize these.  So grab a muffin tin and give them a try!

Here’s the how to:

 

Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts.

Make it easy by starting with two packages of Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts.

 

Cut rounds out of the pie crust.

Roll a single crust out on a flat surface, then use a 4-inch round cookie cutter (or I used a bowl) to cut out 3 circles out of the crust.

 

Press each pie crust circle into a cup of a muffin tin.

Press each circle into the bottom of a greased muffin tin for the bottom of the pie crust.  Repeat with remaining dough until 12 muffin tins are filled.

 

Scoop filling into the crust.

Then scoop some of your favorite filling into each crust.  I went with cherry this time!

 

Top the pies with pie crust circles or lattice.

Use the remaining scraps of dough to make the tops of the pie crusts.  You can either cut thin strips to make a lattice top, or cut out small circles (with little slits in them) for traditional crust tops.

 

Brush crust with an egg wash.

Brush each pie crust with an egg wash.

 

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

Then pop them in the oven for about 25-30 minutes or until they bake up to golden perfection.

 

Mini pie ready to eat.

Look how cute they are!!!

Ok, the lattice crust was my favorite from this batch.  But see what you like best -- these are too fun!

Tips  

Mini versions of your favorite pie! So cute, so easy - and of course, so delicious! All you need for quick and easy miniature pies are some Pillsbury pie crusts, a few cups of your favorite pie filling, and an egg. The sky's the limit with how many ways you can customize these pies. Change up the filling and try using other fruit like peach, or blueberry. Or for a fun holiday treat, make mini pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving dinner. Don't toss that leftover dough! Use the leftovers to create different top crusts. Keep it simple with a traditional top, or cut thin strips and create a fancy lattice. So grab a muffin tin and give it a try!
