How to: No-fuss Cupcake Pies
These cupcake -sized pies have long been a favorite in our family. They’re so easy to make and you can actually get all of the ingredients pre-made from the store! More adventurous people can feel free to make their own crust and filling — but that adds a substantial amount of time to the project. I love making these for potlucks because they’re so easy!
- 1 package frozen pie crust (makes 12 pies)
- 2 cans of pie filling of choice (20oz cans)
- Cupcake pan
- 1 egg
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425 (or whatever it says on the pie crust box). Grease your cupcake pan with oil or butter
Step 2: Roll frozen pie crust to about 1/2 the original thickness. Cut out 12 circles with 4 inch diameters and place them into cupcake tin.
Step 3: Fill pies with canned filling.
Step 4: Cut out remaining strips and place them on the top of the pies however you want, adhering the edges to the bottom crust with egg.
Step 5: Bake for 14-19 minutes (until top is as brown as you’d like it).
Step 6: Enjoy perfect single-portioned pies!
