Magical Mini Pies for the Whole Family

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 pan

Muffin cup liners

Wire cooling rack

Cookie sheet



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?

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
