Mini Cherry Crumb Pie

I have a slight “thing” for Cherry Pie filling, okay a big thing. :)  It is the only canned pie filling that I love.  I admit that I accept any excuse to eat it on or in something.

When planning my menu for Thanksgiving this year, I knew I wanted to make a Cherry Pie.

This year my hubby’s birthday fell on Thanksgiving so I had to figure out a way to incorporate holiday staples with birthday cake.  I could imagine my guests thinking I was really taking my cooking to ridiculous heights if I made full size versions of everything I wanted to make.  So I decided to make miniature desserts consisting of birthday ice cream cake cupcakes, mini pumpkin pies and mini cherry crumb pies.  This was my way of making all the things I wanted without having a ridiculous amount of leftovers.

These pies were super easy to make and quite cute.

I’ve been browsing food blogs this evening and I’ve found a bunch of recipes for mini pies. I so have to go buy mini pie pans! Instead of cherries, I might have to go for strawberry jam though. I’ve got some left from last summer :)
