Mini Honey and Stawberry Pie

October 6, 2010
These pies are so light, refreshing and just the right size! They are also quick to make which is a plus.

Vegetable oil cooking spray
2 unroll-and-bake refrigerated 9-inch pie crusts (recommended: Pillsbury) or if you would like to make your own click here


2 tbs honey
1/2 tbs lemon juice
1/2 tbs arrowroot (if you are like me you do not own arrowroot so here are some substitutions: 1 tsp Arrowroot powder = 1 T flour or 1 1/2 t. cornstarch)
1/2 tsp grated orange zest
8 medium strawberries, cut into 1/4-inch pieces, to yield about 1 1/4 cups
1 egg, beaten

Special equipment: a 12-count nonstick mini-muffin pan, a 3-inch round cookie cutter, a 2-inch round cookie cutter
1. Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

2. For the crust: Spray a 12-count nonstick mini-muffin pan with vegetable oil cooking spray. Put a strip of parchment paper, 1-inch wide and 5-inches long into each muffin cup, allowing the excess paper to overhang the sides of the cups. Unroll the pie crust and using round cookie cutters, cut out 12 (3-inch) circles and 12 (2-inch) circles of dough. Lightly press the 3-inch circles of dough into the bottom and sides of the prepared muffin cups.

3. For the filling: In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, lemon juice, arrowroot, and orange zest until smooth. Stir in the strawberries.

4. Spoon the filling into the muffin cups and using a pastry brush, lightly brush the edges of the dough with beaten egg. Put the 2-inch circles of dough on top. Using the tines of a fork press the edges of the dough together to seal. Lightly brush the tops of the pastry with the beaten egg. Using the tip of a knife, make a 1/4-inch wide slit in the center of each pie. Bake until the crust is golden, about 14 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 30 minutes. Using the overhanging parchment paper as handles, remove the pies from the pan. Remove the parchment paper and serve.
