Handheld fruit pies that are easy to make and a fun nostalgic treat to share! Customize and fill with your favorite flavors.



  • 1 box refrigerated pie crusts (includes 2 crusts)
  • Store-bought pie filling, any flavor
  • 4-inch cookie cutter
  • Small amount of flour to dust the work surface
  • Small bowl of water


  1. Remove pie crusts from the refrigerator and allow crusts to warm up at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  2. On a lightly floured surface roll out the pie crust. Cut out round discs of dough using a 4-inch cookie cutter.
  3. Reroll the pie dough scraps to cut out additional dough discs.
  4. Place 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of pie filling in the center of each pie disc. Do not overfill.
  5. Wet the perimeter of the dough disc with water using a wet finger or brush.
  6. Pinch the dough closed around the pie filling, like a taco, so the dough is now a half-circle.
  7. Place the pie down on the work surface and crimp the edge of the pie with a fork to seal the edges.
  8. Cut 2 or 3 slits in the top of the pie.
  9. Chill assembled pies for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  10. Bake pies at 400°F for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
  11. Remove from the baking pan and allow pies to cool. Store in an airtight container.
