Mini Fruit Pies

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.

~Enjoy~




Mini Fruit Pies

2 cup Krusteaz Pie Crust Mix
4-6 tablespoons water
Jam or Preserves of your choice

Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2-3 teaspoons milk

Directions:
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 a dollop of preserves or jam in the center of each circle. Allow 1/2 inch border between the filling and the edge to allow for sealing.

Dampen the border of dough with a bit of water. Fold dough in half and crimp the edge by pressing down with a fork.

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.

Makes approximately 20 mini pies.
