Ingredients

  • 10-12 medium fresh strawberries chopped into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • ½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ tablespoon tapioca starch Note 1
  • 2 9-inch pie crusts Note 2
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Turbinado sugar optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray mini muffin pan with a cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine chopped strawberries, honey, lemon juice and tapioca starch.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie dough into 1/8-inch thin disk. (If you're using store-bought pie crust, then simply roll it out.) Using 3-inch cookie round cutter, cut out 20 circles. Gather the scraps and roll out a thin disk. Now, using 2-inch round cookie cutter, cut out 20 circles.
  • Mold 3-inch pie crusts into mini muffin cups. Fill each pie with 1 teaspoon of strawberries.
  • Brush on beaten egg around the pie crust edges and place 2-inch pie circles.
  • Using a fork, press the edges of the pie together. And brush the tops of each pie with beaten egg.
  • Make a small slit on each pie and sprinkle some turbinado sugar, if desired.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Cool the pies in the pan for about 30 minutes. Then remove from pan and serve with whipped cream on the side.

Notes

Note 1: It’s best to use tapioca or arrowroot starch for this recipe, as cornstarch could make the filling a bit grainy.
Note 2: You can definitely use store-bought pie dough, but I used my all-butter pie dough. Pie dough can made in advance.
STORING TIPS:
Refrigerate these mini pies, covered, for up to 3 days. These pies don't freeze well.
