mini mixed berry piesThese mini mixed berry pies are so delicious and just the right size for dessert. I saw a version of these in a Family Circle magazine while in the dentist’s office and thought they looked easy enough to try. You can use either frozen or fresh berries wrapped around a bit of pie crust and just a touch of sweetness to create hand held pies that everyone will love. Top with some whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect treat, we love these in the summertime! I have three girls and they love to cook, mainly bake, in the kitchen. Anything that I can come up with that is easy, uses just a few ingredients, and we all will love is a win in my book. These fruit hand pies are just that and can be made with frozen berries during the Winter so you can make them year round! (affiliate links present)

Here is all you really need to make mini berry pies

  1. Pie crusts (I use refrigerated that is already made)
  2. Mixed berries (frozen in a bag or fresh is possible)
  3. Sugar
  4. Tapioca
  5. Muffin tin
  6. Circle cookie cutters

That is really it! I am the type of cook and baker that usually looks away when I see a recipe with more than about 5 ingredients. I don’t have a lot of time in the day and if there is an ingredient I don’t already have in the house I am pretty sure it won’t be made, that’s why I love these mini mixed berry pies. I always have sugar and tapioca, and I almost always have refrigerated pie crusts in the fridge because I make my easy spinach quiche recipe often!

Frozen berries work just fine with this recipe, you just have to thaw them out before filling. Remember to spray your pan well and do not overfill these little pies or they will ooze out….still great, just a bit messy to clean up. Make sure the larger circle of crust is big enough to go up on the sides of the muffin hole, and cut out one a bit smaller to lay on the top of each hole.

The top when cooked will shrink down and somewhat close the sides when baking. One tbsp. of your berry mixture is just enough to fill, and these are just perfect if you are going to a potluck or having a bbq or picnic!
