Mini Cherry Pie

This mini cheery pie is the perfect 5 inch pie that can easily feed dessert to 1-2 people. If you need a recipe for one perfectly small cherry pie, this is for you! 

Mini Cherry Pie

Cherry pie just screams all things summer to me. From outdoor BBQs, picnics, The Fourth of July, it's perfect. Bonus points that cherries are in season and you can even go pick your own cherries for your very own pie. We won't put those directions in the recipe card, but if you want to be a hero, definitely go pick you own cherries.

Mini Cherry Pie:

This cherry pie can be made with fresh or frozen cherries, and basic ingredients that you already have on hand in your pantry. I put a crumb topping on this pie because I personally think it tastes better, and making a pie crust look pretty enough for photos is not my strong suit. If you prefer pie crust over crumb topping that is totally up to you, and you can easily make that switch without having to adjust the cooking time.

Cherry Pie Filling Ingredients:

This cherry pie filling is super easy to make! If you use frozen cherries you won't have to worry about taking the pits out. If you purchase fresh cherries you will have a little extra work with washing and cutting out the pits. 

  • 1 3/4 cups pitted tart cherries, thawed if frozen 
  • 1/3 cups granulated sugar 
  • 1/8 cup cornstarch 
  • 1/4 tablespoon lemon juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

To make the filling simply put all the ingredients together in a sauce pan on the stove, and cook and let it come to a low boil until the cornstarch and sugar dissolves and the mixture becomes thick. The remove from heat and set aside.

Mini Pie Crust:

If I'm being honest, I used a store bough pie crust to make this recipe and I think that is a totally valid and appropriate route to go.

Kitchen Tools for Mini Cherry Pie:

There aren't many kitchen tools you need for making Mini Cherry Pie other than a mini pie plate. I've been using these mini 5-inch pie plates from the Pioneer Woman Collection at Walmart for several years now and I really love them. They're super cute and come in adorable floral prints, and are the perfect size for a single serving cherry pie.
