We saw these adorable mini pies on Disney Family and thought they were an absolutely wonderful idea on how to bring different favors to a holiday meal. With these individual pies, the whole family can have their choice of flavors.
Ingredients for your pies:
Refrigerated pie dough (store-bought or homemade) rolled into a crust about 10 to 11 inches in diameter
Round cookie cutter (2 1/2 to 3 inches wide)
Muffin cup liners
Wire cooling rack
1/4 cup seedless jam or jelly

Step One: Heat the oven to 450 degrees. Meanwhile, use the cookie cutter to cut out fourteen circles from the dough. Place seven of them on a plate in the refrigerator for the time being.
Step Two: Use the remaining circles to create lower crusts for the mini pies by gently pressing each one into the bottom of a lined muffin pan cup and then using a fork to poke holes in the center of the dough to keep if from puffing up will it bakes. Cook the crusts until they turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Then transfer them from the pan to the wire rack to cool.
Step Three: For the upper crusts, remove the dough circles from the refrigerator and use a fork to first crimp the edge of each one and then to poke holes in the centers.
Step Four: Place the muffin pan upside down on top of the cookie sheet and gently drape each dough circle over the bottom of a muffin cup. Again, bake the crusts until they turn golden brown (about 5 minutes) and then transfer them to the rack to cool.
Step Five: Whisk the jam or jelly until smooth and fill each bottom crust with a generous teaspoonful before topping off each pie with an upper crust.
Enjoy your delicious individual pies with your favorite flavor at your next holiday gathering. Strawberry, peach, blueberry, cherry? What is your pie flavor?
