Bite-Sized Pies: Cut the dough into 2 inch rounds and press into a mini muffin pan. Bake at 425 for 4-6 minutes until golden. Fill the shells with jam, dip, or, as we did here, Nutella and top with whip cream. Tiny heart sprinkles optional.

Pie Pops: Using circular cookie cutter (or a small glass) cut pie dough into rounds. Set half of the round on a parchment paper lined baking pan, brush with egg wash and press a treat stick into the dough. Add about 1 teaspoon of filling – we used canned cranberry sauce but jam also works well. Use a straw to make a vent hole in the top rounds, lay these over the filling, press to seal well and bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.

Pop Tarts: Cut pie dough into even squares, brush half of these with egg wash and spread 2 tablespoons of filling (again, jam is a no-brainer – keep reading for our pumpkin filling) Top with another square and press the edges together with a fork. Trim the edges slightly. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

    The Pumpkin Pie Pop-Tarts Filling Recipe:

  • 1 cup of pumpkin puree
  •  ¾ cup brown sugar,
  • 1 large egg,
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt.

   Directions:    Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.

 

 

Pie Fries: This a great use for pie scraps – simply cut the pie dough into strips, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with coarse sugar (or sprinkles) and bake for 4-6 minutes at 350 degrees F.  We serve these with an applesauce for dipping as a slightly sweet after school treat.

Pudding Pies: Bake pie crusts and fill with instant chocolate pudding (check the package, most have ‘pie filling’ instructions) top with marshmallows and broil for

1-2 minutes or until mallows are golden. We made these in 3-inch aluminum pans and nestled them into jewelry boxes for a simple favor.
