I love pie. I especially love mini pies. They're like cupcake's little cousins.
These lil' single serve goodies are some that I made with an old chocolate cream pie recipe; with cornstarch and milk and cocoa and flour and all that - in a double boiler. I make my own pie crust also - it's the only way! I find that, usually, a typical (not deep dish) pie filling recipe makes a dozen mini pies (about 1/3 cup size pies.)
I didn't have cream to make whipped cream, so I put cool whip on them. The real thing would be so much better. Or at least, Redi Whip.
