Everyone loves pies but no one in my family finishes a pie. So this year, I decided to try a different approach. After making some mini-quiches for the baby shower with my mini-pie maker, I wanted a little larger pie for the family.
I bought these large muffin pans, I love large muffins. But how would they be for pies.
Pinterest is filled with pies in muffin pans. So I place the pie crust into each muffin well.
Filled with pie filling.
Bake at 350 degrees until a knife comes out clean. The timing was a little tricky but I checked after 20 minutes and every 5 minutes after that. It took 35 minutes.
So cute and absolutely the perfect size.
With pecan pie, make sure to have a thicker bottom. I did not do that on several pies and they were impossible to get out of the pan.
