Mini Cherry Pies - Lady Behind The Curtain

A great example of how easy it is to put together a dessert for your Valentine Celebration!  I made these by using already made pie crust, a can of cherry pie filling all baked in a cute ketchup cup.  Yes, that’s right a little itty bitty ketchup cup!  Roll out the dough from the package and cut into circles.

Ingredients

  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 Pillsbury ready made pie crust
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • coarse sugar for sprinkling
  • candy heart for decoration (optional)
  • ketchup paper containers

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Un-roll pie crust and roll out a little thinner.
  3. Using a 2-3/4 inch biscuit cutter cut out 10 circles and using a 2-1/2 inch biscuit cutter cut out 10 smaller circles for the top.
  4. Thin out the crust in the center of the large circle by using your fingers to about an inch wide, fold the circle to fit into the ketchup container then press dough up the edges making sure your dough is all the way down in the bottom.
  5. Fill with pie filling.
  6. Moisten the top of the pie with water.
  7. Also moisten the smaller circle with water on the side that will face down on the topping.
  8. Press to stick the pie crust in the container and the pie crust circle together.
  9. Brush with a egg wash which is 1 egg and 1 tablespoon of water beaten together.
  10. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  11. Cut air vents into the top of the pies.

TIP: You can freeze your pies at this point or bake them and then freeze them so all you have to do is re heat them for the party!

  1. Bake 25 minutes.
  2. I put my pies into mini muffin cups so they wouldn't topple over during the transfer process.
  3. Take out of the muffin cups as soon as you can handle them so they don't stick.
  4. Decorated with candy heart. (optional)

    • Okay Adelina, the place that will not be mentioned is known for it’s golden arches. You could also use little party nut cuts. 🙂

    • Hi Allison, I think it will work. You would need to increase the amount of crust, filling and topping. I would also increase the baking time some too.

  1. I can hardly wait to try this idea. Should be great for my women meeting on valentines
    And yes your pictures are wonderful, Thank You so much

  2. I think I will make these for my “peeps” ( all the people at my doctors offices who take such great care of me) . I love them all dearly😊💕💗❤ . Oh, and also the docs of course😊😊😊❤💗💕
