A few days ago, my Mom reminded me about these wonderful little mini pies that she used to make when I was growing up. I instantly remembered how much I had enjoyed them when I was little, and I couldn’t believe that I had not tried to make them – until now.
These tasty little mini pies are very easy to make, require only a few ingredients, and you can use any flavor jam that suits your taste. I used seedless Blackberry preserves for this recipe, and they are delicious!
Thank you Mom, for reminding me of these yummy pies. I hope you like my version of them.
2 cup Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
4-6 tablespoons water
Jam or Preserves of your choice
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 teaspoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Dust a clean counter, or pastry mat, and rolling pin with flour.
Place pie crust mix in a small bowl. Sprinkle water (one tablespoon at a time) over mix while tossing with a fork, until moistened. Form dough into a ball. Flatten into round on floured surface. Roll dough to a thickness of 1/8 – 1/4 inch. Using a biscuit cutter, cut circles from rolled out dough.
Place on prepared cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
For Glaze: combine powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. Stir until smooth. Drizzle glaze over cooled mini pies; if desired.
