The pie for dessert is such a treat. Having a piece of pie that is shared around the table is a nice tradition, but having a whole pie for yourself is good too. Well, a whole mini pie that is.
Hand pies and pies are a great idea if you have a group of people to feed or are going for a potluck and have promised dessert. Individual mini pies are also great to make on the weekend so you have a week of sweet treats to add to your or your kids’ lunches.
Mini pies are also a little easier to make because you’re not fighting whole nine-inch rounds of sticky dough that won’t stop falling apart on you.
Check out these fun OGP recipes for individual pies and pies and get ready!
