Mini Fruit Pies Recipe
Pie dough homemade or store bought
Aluminum individual pie pans
2-3 cans of Pie filling
You will need to make several batches of pie dough (if homemade)
depending on the number of children. One batch of dough should make
3-4 mini pies with a bottom and top crust. It is a good idea to have
extra on hand in case you need it.
Give each child two balls of pie dough and a mini pie pan. Sprinkle
the table with flour and allow them to roll out a ball of pie dough
into a small circle. Place dough into the small pie pans. If you are
using already rolled out pie dough circles skip the above step and
just add circle to pie pan. Roll out the second ball of dough into a
circle for the top crust.
Have each child spoon pie filling into their pie shell. With the
second circle use mini cookie cutters or cut slits in the circle.
Top pie with second pie crust. Cut off the excess dough around the
edges and pinch the edges together. With a pastry brush, brush tops
of pie with egg white and sprinkle with sugar before cooking. Place
on a cookie sheet and label with masking tape each kid chef's pie.
Several children can share a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for
30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
While waiting for all the pies to cook, prepare another recipe,
decorate aprons, chef hats or play cooking games.
