Cutie Pies Cookbook

Mini pies are the cupcakes of the pie world, and they're surprisingly easy to make – you can just use a muffin pan! In Cutie Pies by Dani Cone, owner of High 5 Pie in Seattle, the secret to perfect homemade mini pies is revealed with 40 sweet and savory recipes. And the best part is, you can mix and match crust types and pie shapes, making: “cutie pies” baked in muffin pans; “petit-5s” baked in mini-muffin pans; “piejars” baked in half-pint mason jars; “flipsides” which are like hand-held turnovers; “piepops” which is pie on a stick or, go traditional and make these recipes into full-size pies.

This cookbook will have you baking pies, pies and more pies, through all seasons and for any occasion. But, of course, it’s most useful with Thanksgiving and holiday office parties right around the corner – cute little mini pies are easy to transport and serve (no slicing required). Plus, savory offerings like Mac’n’Cheese Cutie Pies and Salmon, Cream Cheese and Dill Peti-5s would make wonderful, creative Thanksgiving and holiday appetizers – a host’s secret for keeping guests munching and mingling happily.
