4 ingredients? Yessiree bob: pre-made pie crust, strawberry jam, whipped topping, and fresh blueberries. That’s it!
Now that you have the list you probably don’t even need to read any further, because the assembly isn’t exactly rocket science. But there are a few measurements to make and quick tricks to keep them looking all cute (and not little sticky strawberry blobs, filling overflow is still yummy, but not pretty).
Red White and Blue Strawberry Mini Pies
Just 4 ingredients in these yummy mini pies, and that includes the blueberry. Summer potlucks, 4th of July, Memorial Day -- these beauties travel great and work for any gathering.
- 1 package premade double pie crust (the kind you unroll)
- 2/3 cup strawberry jam
- 2 cups whipped topping
- 24 or so fresh blueberries
Unroll the premade pie crusts and lay them flat
Using a 3" round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut out 10-12 rounds per pie crust (20-24 total). Alternately use a knife to cut the dough into 3" squares
Securely press each pie crust round into the mini-muffin pan. Use a sharp knife to cut off any pie dough that sticks above the edge of the pan.
Fill each pie crust with a heaping teaspoon of strawberry jam. Cups should be about half full -- don't overfill or jam will bubble over.
Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until crusts are just barely beginning to brown
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature
Put a dollop (1-2 tbsp) of whipped topping on each mini pie
Top with a single fresh blueberry
This recipe is designed to be fast and easy, with minimal ingredients, but feel free to experiment by making your own pie crust, swapping out the strawberry jam filling for other flavors (blueberry filling with a strawberry on top?) or even fluting the edges of each little pie crust to make ’em look fancy. These pies are yummy at room temperature or chilled, but best served within 24 hours of assembly.
