Mini Fruit Pies Recipe



Pie dough homemade or store bought
Aluminum individual pie pans
2-3 cans of Pie filling
Egg white
Sugar



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.
