Recipe: Bite Sized Fruit Pies


These Bite Sized Fruit Pies are a terrific little addition to a dessert tray. They pop in your mouth and just burst with flavor…. No muss… no fuss making them or serving them… so much easier than making a variety of pies…. and they’re so darn cute… perfect to bring to work for a food day… or even a pot luck supper.

TIPS

Make as many kinds as you would like… I do suggest at least two flavors though … I made cherry and blueberry… apple would be a great choice also.

Fill them to just below the top… the filling will expand a little bit…. the cherry ones took about 2-3 cherries in each depending on the size cherry… make sure you get some of the pie filling goop in there too.

I dressed them up with a small dollop of Chantilly Cream… a small dollop will do ya… but a larger dollop will do ya better….. after taking the picture I added a little more whipped cream.. and they were soooo good… they didn’t last long after I took the picture.

I’m giving you a “halved recipe” of my Chantilly Cream Recipe… I think half will be enough for a batch of little pies from two pie crusts.

Two pie crusts should make about 28 bite sized fruit pies.

You will probably have leftover pie filling especially if you make more than one kind of pie … refrigerate leftovers for another use… it's a great topping for ice cream or English muffins and cream cheese.

I used my 2 ¼ inch biscuit cutter to cut the pie crust… it fit perfectly in my mini muffin tin.

These are delicious …. and addictive!

They are beauties!

Just curious... It says to preheat to to 450...but then says to bake at 375. You just cut it down before you bake them?
Also... How are these to freeze?

Yikes!

It was a typo... preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.. and bake them at 375 degrees...

Thanks for pointing that out.

I would imagine they would freeze fine... I've never tried it... I've frozen my mini quiches before and they worked great...

I would freeze them raw... as for baking them from the freezer.. I'd have to try that.. if you try it.. let me know how they worked out. If I get a chance to try it.. I'll post the results.

Thanks for stopping by and please come again.
