It’s easy to mini cream pies in mini pie pans. For pans, you will need a set of four mini pie pans. These typically hold about one-fourth of nine inch pie pan so choose a recipe designed for a nine-inch pie, not a deep dish pie. You will also need pie pastry, either refrigerated or homemade.
- If you are making a mini cream pie that does not call for a top crust, you will need enough pastry for two single crust pies. Roll out and line your pie pans with unbaked pastry.
- Most cream pies are not baked but the crusts are. Bake them just as you would for a larger pie using pie chain weights or beans to keep them from forming bubbles.
- Make the filling per the recipe. Divide the filling between the four mini pie pans.
