Mini Cherry Pies

When I learned that January 23 is National Pie Day, I knew I had to celebrate it somehow. Since I’ve been in a Valentine’s Day mood lately, heart-shaped personal pies seemed just the thing. I called up my mom and asked her over for a Sunday afternoon session of Mini Cherry Pie making so that I could make enough to share at work. (Yes, that meant I took the pies to work two days early, but no way was I going to make pies by myself on a Tuesday evening with a toddler underfoot!)

We started with store-bought pie crust and filling, and used a Pocket Pie Mold to assemble the pies. While time-intensive, they turned out scrumptious, and were a big hit at the office. Wrapping them in wax paper bags and twine made transporting them to work simple. Many thanks to my mom for all her help!

By the way, March 14 is National Pi Day. Another good day for pie, perhaps?

Linking up with Tuesday at the Table, of course.
