Ingredients

  • one batch of pie crust for a double crust pie See my recipe for Easy No-Fail Pie Crust for a great one!
  • 1 cup jam preserves, or apple butter

Instructions

  • Roll out half the pie crust on a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut out 10 -12 hearts using a large heart-shaped cookie cutter. (Mine was about 5" x 4") If you don't have enough dough, you may have to gather the scraps and roll them out again.
  • Transfer each heart to a lightly greased baking sheet.
  • Spoon 1-1.5 tablespoons filling onto each heart.
  • Roll out the other half of the pie crust on a lightly floured surface, and again cut out 10-12 more hearts.
  • Place a second heart on top of each one with filling. Score the edges with a fork to seal.
  • Place in a 375° oven for 15-30 minutes. The baking time will vary depending on your filling. My apple butter mini pies were done in about 18 minutes, but my strawberry preserve mini pies took almost 30 minutes. You'll know they're done because the crust will be golden brown. If you take them out and the crust looks translucent, they're not done yet. Bake for another 5 minutes and check again.
  • Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve warm.
