The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
These mini cherry pies are made from my normal cherry pie recipe, just mini size! They’re incredibly delicious!
I come from a family who absolutely adores pie. We each request our favorite pie for birthday celebrations, holidays, and any regular ol’ day. My mom just happens to have a collection of amazing pie recipes… and a top notch pie crust! I’m not kidding.
Last weekend, my dad and my brother were busy on the tractors prepping the farm ground for the year. And if you follow me on Instagram, you got a sneak peek of what I was up to while they were busy in the tractors…
Because I have such a special place in my heart for each those hardworking guys, I decided to surprise them with their own Mini Cherry Pies. Today I thought I’d share the recipe. It truly is fabulous, entirely homemade and simpler then you may think!
This recipe can make 1 large pie, or 6 mini pies, depending on the size of your mini pie pan. The filling is delicious. Not too sweet, not too tart, but just right. And the crust…. well it’s basically magical.
After I rolled out the dough for my crust, I placed it in my mini pie pan, then added the cherry pie filling…
Then I just rolled out the second batch of dough for the top, covered them, trimmed off the extra dough and pinched the bottom and top crust together…
I baked them until the crust was just slightly golden brown, then pulled them out the oven and let them sit until they were cooled…
Then, I made simple little craft paper pouches and stuffed them inside with a paper towel.
From there, they were ready for delivery…
And boy, were they happy to find what was inside! My dad may have requested that I continue this tradition… weekly… 🙂
They most definitely enjoyed their pies, so much so, that I didn’t get a picture of my brother… he ate his too fast! Needless to say, my family highly recommends them!
Here’s the recipe:
And once they’d had their pie, I sent them on their way…
So, from our farm table, err tractor seat, to yours, Enjoy! This is a yummy one!

Shayna – Love your site and visit often! The pies are adorable and our men always appreciate a little extra attention. As I visit your site, your have the most fun plants in pots that look like rosemary. I’m a plant lover and wonder if they are real, if so, what are they, or if not real, where did you buy them? Maybe a silly question but I love them and they add so much. Keep up the good stuff because I love it!!
THANK YOU so much, Chris! I’m so happy you’re loving my blog! Yes, the plants you spied are rosemary trees. I bought them before Christmas and absolutely 100% loved them. Sadly, they didn’t love me and they died… I’m on the hunt for more! 😀
Where did you get your pie pan? I’m looking for kne like that and can’t find one.
Can’t wait to try this recipe out
