It's all y'all's fault that I have like 15 mini pies sitting in my kitchen.

Upside, they are just the right size to eat at the gym while running on the treadmill....

With the apple pie, I made a filling by cooking the apples in a bit of butter, added sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch, cooked that until thick. Then a lightbulb went on and I remembered that I had some dolce de leche so I mixed that in too, the filling was great! I used homemade pie crust and it came out beautifully flaky.

For the pecan, I was just curious to see if it would work so I ran to the store and got some pillsbury pre-made crusts. I used the recipe on the Karo bottle. This made 11 mini pies. Each crust made 4 pies, and I gathered the scraps and rolled out 3 more. I may have gotten another crust if I had tried, there would have been enough filling for 1 more.

I liked the homemade crust best, it didn't brown as quickly and tastes a lot better, but the pre-made was easy to work with and quick.

Had to take pictures with my phone because all of my batteries are dead for my good camera.
I don't like Pillsbury crust. It has no flavor at all. I buy a Mexican one at my supermarket.

I agree, the homemade was much better.

The pillsbury sure was easy to use though! By making my own, I get a lot more crust for my $$

mini Blackberry Pies

Wish you were here to share these BlackBerry Pies. I thank someone here for the idea of using a small water bottle top to create a vent for the pies. I made the classic crisco crust (buttery) I forgot to put the parchment paper until halfway through baking but they came out fine. I used the comstock blackberry pie filling right from the can. Filled the pies nearly full. Baked for 17 minutes. Did someone say I can use pizza crust in here too? Uh oh. Mini deep dish pizza? Filled with cheese? Sausage? Pepperoni? Cheese? Wonderful cheese.

I'll try to remember to post the recipe for the apple pie filling that I made.
