Lately I’ve been into make all my favorite desserts mini. Whether that’s taking some of my favorites and turn them into small batch recipes, like my favorite brownie recipe and turning them into a small batch brownie recipe. Or my go to cinnamon rolls into a small batch cinnamon rolls recipe.

Or taking any of my favorite desserts and making them truly mini. Like my favorite chocolate cheesecake recipe and turning them into these adorable mini chocolate cheesecakes.

After making this blueberry crumble pie and this easy blueberry crostata I knew I wanted a mini version of this amazing dessert. Because there’s something about a mini dessert that just makes you smile isn’t there? It’s like your own little individual dessert. 

Plus, I realized that pies might just be better in mini version. Why? Well there is just the cuteness factor. And I think that little mini pies are way easier than a full-size pie. But the most important reason? A better crust to filling ratio! So let’s just say I’m now a huge fan of little pies. Starting with these little mini blueberry pies.

I used my homemade double pie crust recipe but you could easily use a store-bought pie dough. And then I stirred fresh blueberries with a little lemon zest, sugar, lemon juice and cornstarch. Super simple! I used a cookie cutter to cut out the pie crust, and filled each pie with the blueberry mixture. 

These amazing mini blueberry pies all get baked in a muffin tin for a super cute summer dessert! And when they are done baking you have these delicious treats with a perfectly flaky crust and jammy blueberry filling.

How To Make Mini Blueberry Pies

Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).

On a lightly floured surface, using a rolling pin roll the pie crusts out to about 1/8-inch thickness.  Using a 4-inch circle cutter (or biscuit cutter) cut out 12 circles from the pie crusts (6 from each pie dough).

Cut out as many as you can from the first batch, then press the scraps together and Re-roll any scrap pieces of pie dough as needed to cut out the circles.

circles cut out of pie crust

Place each dough circle of pie crust into each cavity of a standard 12-count muffin pan. Gently press the dough down and around the sides. You want to make sure the dough fits snuggly in each cavity of the muffin pan.

Keep the muffin pan refrigerated while you make the blueberry filling.

Remove the muffin pan from the refrigerator and evenly distribute the blueberry pie filling (about 3 tablespoons) between the 12 pie crusts.

Remove the extra pie dough from the refrigerator, cut out your designs for the tops of the pies, and place them on top. You can use a cookie cutter and cut out fun shapes or make a fun lattice top! Or simply cut out simple circles and press on top of each pie. Be sure to cut a few slits into the top to vent the pie filling.

Brush the top of the crusts with the prepared egg wash. Sprinkle on sparkling sugar.

Bake for 18 to 23 minutes or until the pie crust is lightly golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully remove the mini pies from the pan and transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Recipe Tips

  • Use a large enough cutter. I used a 4-inch cutter which fits a standard size muffin tin well. If yours are smaller your mini pies may bake up quicker and you may have leftover filling. 
  • Use a light-colored pans. Dark-colored pans may cause your pies to bake too quickly and become too dark. 

Recipe FAQs

How do I store these mini pies?

Store any leftover pies in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 

Can I freeze these pies?

Freeze any leftover baked pies for up to 3 months. Make sure they are cooled completely before freezing. Freeze in an airtight container. I also like to wrap each pie in plastic wrap and then place in a freezer bag for added protection. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving. You can also assemble these pies and freeze unbaked for up to 3 months. Bake frozen (no need to thaw) and add on a few additional minutes of baking time. 

Do I need to make my own pie crust for this recipe? 

No you don’t! Feel free to use a store-bought pie crust. You will need both rolls of pie dough. But I do love a homemade butter crust. You can make a flaky pie crust easily in your food processor!

Can I add a crumble topping instead? 

Absolutely! Try my crumble topping from my blueberry crumble pie or Dutch apple pie recipe to sprinkle on top before baking.
