You may have to shop around a little to find these small 5- to 6-inch tins, but they’re out there, for sure. You can also buy them online. The point of mini pies is that small is beautiful. It’s adorable. It’s irresistible. If you have a pie stand, these ones sell out first.
There is nothing special about making a mini pie. When you decide to make it, make more: freeze them or give them as gifts.
Follow this recipe for any of the pies on this site. Roll out your dough to the shape and size of your pie dishes and add the filling into your dishes. The crust-to-filling ratio should be balanced, regardless of what size dishes you’re using.
Crimping can be somehow tougher on these baby pies. There’s much less room to pinch your fingers around the rim. But take your time, and you can make a fluted edge that will make everyone admiring the prettiness of your little pie.[images cols=”three” lightbox=”true”] [image link=”714″ image=”714″] [image link=”713″ image=”713″] [image link=”712″ image=”712″] [image link=”711″ image=”711″] [image link=”710″ image=”710″] [image link=”709″ image=”709″] [/images]
