until the dough binds together and can form a ball. Place in the
refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes. Remove the dough from
the refrigerator and divide into 2 even sections. Roll out each

your pie filling and transfer filling to your pie crust.

This is a fun way for kids to have a small pie portion and works
well for making pies in a classroom setting. Make pie crust
according to your recipe. Roll dough out and cut into small circles
about 5-6 inches around. You can find a bowl or large glass with
about that diameter.
Have each child press your pie dough inside a greased muffin tin
making sure dough comes up along the top edge. Add pie filling and
add a second circle for the top or create a decorative top.
Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until pie is golden
