Mincemeat Mini Pies

Thursday, December 6, 2012

There is a growing trend out for mini pies. They are cute, are individual (no cutting required) and you end up with so much filling (you know how pie tends to be, once you cut the slice all the filling starts to slowly ooze out as you try to put it on the plate). This is probably my easiest recipe of this series, simply because all you need is store bought crust and store bought filling. Did I get lazy in any of the ingredients? ...Maybe (I mean you try to bake every day for 12 days!). Haha, but honestly sometimes you don't have time to whip up something delicious when your cousin from California says she is about an hour away and will be stopping by for a couple days. You just have enough time to whip up some nice home-made mini pies, get the guest room ready and look like you were expecting her! Enjoy!

Mincemeat Mini Pies
Prep time: 20 minutes        Total Time: 30 minutes          Yield: 12 Mini Pies

- 1 pkg ready made pie crust (I used Pillsbury)
- 1 cup ready made mincemeat (you can use cherry, apple, lemon, etc!)

1. Grease muffin pans. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough. Using a round cookie cutter or cup (about 3-1/2 inches in diameter) cut out 12 circles. Press lightly into the muffin pans to form the pie shell. Fill with filling, about one to two tablespoons.If you want to do a lattice style on top, cut dough into strips and place in alternating manner (one on top of the other). If you want a full top, cut out 12 more circles and place on top. Press edges lightly to seal.
3. Bake in center of oven until golden, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool for a bit. Serve warm.
