MINI CHERRY PIES


Today's post is one of those that got lost on my hard drive.  Luckily I did have a few shots I took with my cell phone so I can still share it.
I thought these Mini Cherry Pies are the cutest things ever!
They were pretty simple to make and the kids loved them , and so did the neighbors that we gave some to as well.

So with my big camera (the missing pictures) I took a few extra photos of steps but I did get enough with my cell phone.

So this is how I made these.  

I took premade refrigerated pie crust and rolled one of them out.  I took a cup that was the perfect size.  I cut out circles and gently placed them in each mini muffin cup.  I baked them for about 10 minutes. 
I took them out and let them cool for a few minutes.
I took a can of cherry pie filling, and filled each backed pie crust.  



Then I took the second sheet of crust and cut the same circle with the cup.  I then cut tiny little strips from those circles and added those to the top of each mini pie.  

I then stuck it back in the oven to bake for a bit. I wanted it to heat the cherry pie filling and bake the strips on top.  I checked them to make sure they were crisp and the filling was heated then took them out of the oven. 
I then let them cool enough that they were safe to touch.  

We tasted them and they were so good!  It was really an easy little treat to make for the kids.  

I am thinking little tiny pumpkin pies would be super fun too.  

Do you like to make tiny little desserts?  What is your favorite?
