Mini Cherry Pies

    Mini Cherry Pies for two. Just the right amount of pie for a quiet night in without any leftovers.
    Disclosure time…
    I am in my mid-thirties.
    I was a bit young for the 80’s hair, but man, did I enjoy the 90’s hair!
    And when I say hair, I mean HAIR BANDS!
    As in Guns N Roses, Poison, Bon Jovi, Skid Row, and yes… Warrant.
    I’ll admit now, that the entire time I was making my first cherry pie, I was singing “She’s my Cherry Pie, Cool drink of water such a sweet surprise!”
    So, that’s my dirty secret for today…
    You now know about my shameful taste in music.

    You shouldn’t get into too much trouble with this simple dessert.
    I cut the original recipe in half to just make two mini pies.
    Simply double the recipe if you want to make a whole pie.
    If you have a favorite pie crust recipe, feel free to use it in place of a pre-made one. Perfect Pie crust is on my bucket list for Dieter’s Downfall… One of these days….

    And… because now I know you can’t get that song out of your head…
    I actually got sick watching this video.
    I’d like to take this moment to apologize to my mother for playing this song over and over…
