Simple Organized Living

I love eating pie, I love making pie, I love nearly all vartities of pie! The only problem with pie is that the crust always seems to get soggy before we can eat it all — there are just 2 of us you know. So today — as I was contemplating whether or not I should make a pie (and knowing that my husband would definitly want me to make a pie) — I decided to try something new… … mini pies! I figured that if I made mini pies, I could make as many as we needed and I could customize the filling so everyone got their favorite pie. Not sure why I didn’t think of this sooner? Anyway, mini pies are extremely easy and take less than 20 minutes to bake (half that of most full pies) Ingredients: Pie Crust Dough — I used store bought refrigerated crust but feel free to use homemadeFilling — choose your favorite pie fillings and make mini batches of each one (or use canned filling) Directions: Use a biscuit cutter to create mini pie crusts — cut as many or as few as you want What is your favorite pie?
