“As You Wish” Mini Pies

  • Yield 8 servings
  • Prep 15 mins
  • Cook 15-20

These are called “as you wish” pies because each individual pie’s filling can be different, though the pies all bake at once. Each pie needs about ¼ cup of filling, and that filling is up to you!

Ingredients

2 (9-inch) refrigerated piecrusts
2 cups pie filling (see suggestions below)
4 teaspoons low-fat milk
4 teaspoons sugar
Suggestions for fillings:
Fresh or thawed frozen raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, or a combination
Diced apples or pears, can mix with dried cranberries, raisins, or cherries
Chocolate chips (semisweet, milk, or white chocolate, or a combination)
Peanut butter chips

Instructions

  1. Divide the piecrusts into 16 equal portions (8 portions per crust) and shape each portion in a ball. Press 8 of the balls into the bottom and all the way up the sides of the wells of a 12-cup muffin tin (4 cups will be empty).
  2. Fill the crusts with the desired fillings. Press the remaining 8 pieces into rounds large enough to cover the diameter of the muffin cup. Press the rounds over the fillings and pinch the crusts together to seal. Prick the tops with a fork. Brush the surface of the pies with the milk and sprinkle with the sugar.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the crusts are golden brown.
