These adorable mini pies will be the star of the sweet table! With dough that is super easy to work with, these filled tartlets are the perfect addition to your dessert repertoire. Fill them with the filling of your choice. They can be made into mini cherry pies, mini apple pies, mini pecan pies, or even filled with chocolate ganache. Be creative when decorating the top of each tartlet, by topping it with a lattice topping, or the classic pie topping with four slits. You can even punch holes with a tiny cookie cutter. Whatever you do, these will be delicious!
