These little pies would be a hit in our house. My boys are always asking for pie, and they love the McDonalds pies. These look easy and quick. I can use whatever ingredients we like, and whatever dough I prefer. I like that because I know what is in it and can avoid additives we dont want. Making these is a win - win situation. They get their pies, and I know what they are getting isnt all chemicals.

We love hot cherry and hot apple pies, but I never even thought to try making them at home myself! I like how simple this recipe is, it would be a great one to make with kids. I usually like to make things from scratch, so if I had time, I would make these with homemade pie dough and homemade filling. But in a crunch, these could be made very quickly for a weeknight dessert or treat, or for unexpected guests! And the filling options are endless too!

this looks like it would be an easy item to follow and allows the number of pies you would want to make for number of individuals involved...
