How to make Mini Cherry Pie - Step by step
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Step 2: Cut eight 6-inch circles from the two packages of Pillsbury Pie Crusts (gather and reroll scraps as needed). Fit five 4 1/2-inch mini pie pans with 5 dough rounds. Cut 2 1/4-inch stars from center of remaining 3 dough rounds; set aside.
Step 3: Combine cherries with raspberries; then stir in sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, cornstarch, and salt.
Step 4: Pour filling into prepared pie pans; dot each pie with 1 teaspoon cold butter. Cover 3 pies with reserved dough circles; crimp edges. Top remaining 2 pies with star cutouts (for perfect stars, bake separately on a parchment-lined pan until golden, 5 to 8 minutes). Bake pies until filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 minutes.
Step 5: Let cool.
Step 6: Serve & enjoy!
Note: This delicious recipe can be jazzed up with a sprinkle of cinnamon or nutmeg, or a few gratings of lemon zest.
