Mini Hand Held Fruit Pies Recipe

Easy Mini Fruit Pies!

I am a Pinterest addict and a foodie through and through! I had seen several recipes for mini fruit pies on Pinterest and decided to take the ideas that I had seen and try my own version of the Mini Fruit Pie.  There are quite a few out there, all from scratch, fried, baked, and  different shapes…as busy as I am, I decided to go the easy route and use ready and easy to mix store-bought products for my Mini Pie recipe.

So let’s get started!

ingredients

What you’ll need:

1-package pre-made pie crust

1- can fruit pie filling (any flavor)

1- box instant pudding/pie filling mix +milk for mixing

small bowl water – for sealing pie

powdered sugar for glaze (mix with water or milk)

Pre-Heat oven to 350 or 375 (depending on oven)

I used pre-made, refrigerated pie crust, can of pie filling (I used strawberry but any flavor would be yummy!) and I also wanted to try a pudding filled pie, so I picked up an instant pudding/pie filling mix.

After mixing the pudding and unrolling the pie crust, I used the empty pie filling can to cut out my circles for the pies (you can use a cookie cutter) My circles were about  3 1/2″ across, but you can do any size you like :)

Next I began to fill the circles with filling being careful not to use too much or it will be hard to seal them (but the ones that oozed out were still so yummy!)  Place filling in the center, then fold over and press with finger to close, you can use a little water on your finger tip to help with sealing if needed. Then to make them pretty and double seal them I pressed the edges with a fork.

Then I placed the pies on a parchment paper lined large cookie sheet (about an inch apart), placed the cookie sheet in the pre-heater oven and baked!

and…

 Voila! Mini fruit pies!

I glazed mine with a powdered sugar and water glaze, served warm or cooled these pies are so ding dang good! Perfect for a quick snack or a party, everyone will love these mini pies! The fruit ones were great but I loved the pudding ones!

Try your own variation of these fun and easy mini pies, different sizes, filling flavors, even melted chocolate chips for filling or drizzled on top would be amazing!!  Enjoy!

    I LOVE pie!! I probably should make these for myself since Bob doesnt like pie as much. Sounds easy and yummy!!! Small enough for Emma to have one,too. :)

  5. Oh goodness! This is going to cost me some pounds and inches but I think it will be well worth it! I will be making these tomorow. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I will have to try making these. My grandmother used to make them from scratch, but I have never attempted that. Her house always smelled good! Thanks for sharing this recipe!
