Her Pinspiration: Personal Pies

Written by Jen Sill

Written by Jennifer Sill


Usually these ‘Pinspirations’ come directly from Pinterest, but I have to admit I’ve been slacking on my ‘pins’ lately.  Instead, we’ve been out doing ‘classes’ at local kids museums and the like.  SO, this project actually comes from one of our outings.


Personal Pies


-Pie Crust (we used the kind you find in the refrigerated section at the grocery store.)

-Peach Pie filling (the museum used strawberry.  We used peach.)

*Big Cookie Cutters or a large-mouth glass

*Ice Cream topping if you like



1. Roll out the dough


2. Cut at least two equal shapes


3. Place pie filling in the center of one of your shapes.


4. Place the second shape on top of the first.

5. Pinch and roll the edges to keep the filling in.


6. Poke holes in the top to let the pie ‘breathe’

6. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes (or until golden brown)

  • I love this! I’m going to try it out with my kids even if the chances of them eating the finished product are slim. 😉

    • lol. My kids go through phases. Sometimes they like the process better… sometimes they like the end result. This one, they BOTH loved the ice cream. But Madison loved the strawberry pie also. 😉
