In other news… PIES!

I’ve been in a pie sort of mood lately, and can you blame me? They are delicious and the perfect treat for summer. Especially these Mini Fresh Fruit Pies which are loaded with a creamy cheesecake filling and bursting with fresh summer fruits!

Mini Fresh Fruit Pies

Earlier this week I shared a Sour Cream Lemon Pie and a Key Lime Pie. Both are fantastic, but both take a couple hours to chill in the fridge before you can enjoy them.

If you’re anything like me, that can seem like for-ev-er.

So I created a quick solution to your pie cravings. I pulled out some refrigerated pie crusts and my 4″ circle cookie cutter. Then I draped the circles over my Wilton Ice Cream Cookie Bowl Pan (but you can use the backside of a muffin tin if you want), sprinkled with a little sugar, and baked them till golden brown and flaky.

(I was able to get 6 circles out of each pie crust.)

If you have guests coming over for a BBQ or party you could pre bake the pie shells, have the creamy cheesecake filling ready, and fresh fruit set out for guests to build their own pies.

It’s genius really.

Mini Fresh Fruit Pies for a crowd

Maybe you’re planning a 4th of July bash?

Set out strawberries and/or raspberries with some blueberries for a patriotic fresh fruit pie! Your guests will love them, and you will love how easy they are to prepare!

Easy Mini Fresh Fruit Pies!

These are so much fun to make, and the creamy cheesecake filling is to die for! If you run out of pie crust, you can always use the filling as a fresh fruit dip, it’s seriously lick-the-spoon good.

So if you’re in a pinch for dessert and you’re craving some pie, you need to give this easy recipe a try!
