Mini Cherry Pie Bites

I’m sure you’ve gathered that I like pies. They’re sweet and if you’re going over to a friend’s house for a party or get-together, they’re always appreciated. Here’s an easy mini cherry pie bites recipe that you and your friends are sure to enjoy.

  • 15 oz can cherry pie filling
  • 2 packages of pre-made pie dough
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Sugar for sprinkling
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Set aside a 24 slot mini muffin tray that has been greased.
  3. Roll out one of the pie crusts into a roughly rectangle shape (approximately a quarter-inch thickness) on a lightly floured board and cut out 12 three-inch rounds.
  4. Place the dough rounds in the muffin tin and repeat with the remaining pie crusts.
  5. Combine the cherry pie filling with the almond extract in a mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Fill the bottom crusts with cherry pie filling.
  7. Re-roll your leftover dough after kneading it together.
  8. 1 1/2 squares should be enough to cover each pie.
  9. Cut each dough square into four strips and lay in a lattice pattern over the pies’ tops.
  10. Stir the egg and water together with a fork in a small bowl.
  11. Brush the egg wash over the top dough with a basting brush.
  12. Sprinkle the hearts with sugar and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until golden.
  13. Let cool and serve.
