December 1 is National Pie Day: Pies for You and Pies for Me

When one person likes cherry pie and the next person likes apple and still another likes Mince, it is time to make these individual mini-pies.
Crust: Rub one stick (1/2 cup) butter with 2 cups flour. Add anywhere from 4-8 teaspoons of water. Add a little at a time until it can form a ball but not be too sticky.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is about 1/4 inch.
Use a large cookie cutter to cut the pastry circles. Gently place these circles into individual ramekins or into a cupcake tin.

Add your filling. It can be a favorite recipe of your own. It can be canned pie filling.
Or, you can use Lemon Curd, a berry jam or marmalade. Everyone can choose their own filling.


Cut out circles for the top crust or you can use any shape cookie cutter to make interesting top crusts. The crusts do not have to cover the whole top, if you don't want them to.

Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 15-25 minutes.
If you wish, sprinkle some powdered sugar on top before serving.


And for another educational pie, you could make
A is for Apple Pie
