Cherry Pie Bites
Cherry Pie Bites are a delicious and bite-sized version of traditional cherry pie. They are typically made using cherry pie filling and a pastry crust, and are perfect for serving at parties, gatherings, or as a sweet treat for yourself.
Here’s a simple recipe for making Cherry Pie Bites: Ingredients: 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts) 1 can of cherry pie filling 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash) Granulated sugar (for sprinkling) Instructions: Preheat your oven to the temperature specified on the pie crust package. Unroll the pie crusts on a lightly floured surface and use a rolling pin to slightly thin out the crusts. Use a round cookie cutter or a glass to cut out circles from the pie crusts. The size of the circles will depend on how big you want your Cherry Pie Bites to be. Place half of the pie crust circles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spoon a small amount of cherry pie filling onto the center of each circle, leaving a small border around the edges.
Cover each filled circle with another pie crust circle. Use a fork to press the edges together and seal the pies. Brush the tops of the Cherry Pie Bites with beaten egg wash. This will give them a golden and shiny appearance when baked. Sprinkle a little granulated sugar on top of each pie bite for added sweetness and crunch. Use a small knife or toothpick to poke a few holes in the tops of the pie bites to allow steam to escape while baking. Bake the Cherry Pie Bites in the preheated oven for the time indicated on the pie crust package, or until they are golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and allow the Cherry Pie Bites to cool for a few minutes before serving.
These Cherry Pie Bites are best enjoyed warm or at room temperature. You can serve them as they are, or you can add a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for extra indulgence. Enjoy!
