Mini Fruit Pies

Mini Fruit Pies from ZestuousIt’s true good things do come in small packages, especially when it comes to food. I love making bite-sized snacks and desserts because it gives you the opportunity to sample a variety of flavors and treats. While my mini-cupcakes are the go-to recipe for birthdays, when I want to make something a little more special, but equally as easy, I go with mini-pies or tartlets, using my favorite mini-square pan. While you’re welcome to make your own pie crust, I usually use Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust. One box (2 crusts) makes 24 mini-pies.

Mini Fruit Pies


  • 2 cups chopped fruit
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 box Pillsbury pie crust

Mix the chopped fruit of your choice (see below) with sugar, flour and cinnamon.

Unroll the pie crust. If using a square pan, use a square biscuit or cookie cutter to cut the dough to fit the pan. If using a mini-muffin pan, use round cutters or a glass turned upside down.

Press the dough into the pan and work it up the edges. Spoon the fruit mixture into the crust, filling it about ¾ full. Top with strips of pie crust or cobbler topping.

Place in a 400 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, until the topping is light brown. Serve plain or with cool, whip or ice cream.
Cobbler Topping


  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup flour
  • pinch of cinnamon

In a medium bowl, mix all the ingredients with a fork, until they are blended and crumbly. Spoon the crumble on top of the fruit mixture.
