Mini Cherry Pies

Today I made some Mini Cherry Pies - they are so easy to make.

I will give you some super easy tips and you only need two ingredients. A box with two pie crusts rolled up like Pillsbury and a can of cherry pie filling.

First line each muffin tin with foil so that the foil overlaps the muffin cup. You will use this foil as a handle to take the mini pie out of the muffin tin.

I am sorry that the above photo is so lame - but hopefully you get the idea.

Roll out one of the pie crusts and cut circles out with a cookie cutter or a glass that is a little larger than the muffin tin. Then roll out the next pie crust and continue cutting the circles.

Once the circles are cut out - press them into each muffin tin.

With the extra crust - cut out some mini stars.

Now fill each muffin tin with a few spoonfuls of cherry pie filling and place the cut out stars on top of the filling.

I bake the pies for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Once the pies have cooled, use the foil to remove the pies. Then carefully remove the foil.

These are the perfect size! However, I have made these in the mini muffin tins which are really bite size. If you want you could find a smaller circle and cut little tops for the pie.

I hope you try to make these - they are so easy to make! Two ingredients! And just a few easy steps.
