I was standing in the grocery check out line a couple weeks ago just before lunch time and I was starving. I saw one of those recipe magazines they put together from time to time claiming to have recipes for 75 different pies. SEVENTY FIVE. It was so beguiling I succumbed to temptation right there and took a copy home (I paid for it first, don't worry).
And you fine readers will get the benefits of my purchase (along with my family who have been readily rejoicing in my newly found pie craze) because I've been making pies as fast as they can eat them here.
These are tidy little packages to present to your hungry horde that are perfect for a fall breakfast and since it's made from prepared foods it goes together very easily.
1 package of 8 refrigerated biscuits such as Pillsbury Grands
1 can of cherry pie filling
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup nuts
Unroll the biscuits (I love popping those cans) and cut each in half crosswise so that you have 16 thin rounds of dough. Grease some muffin cups lightly with spray oil and roll out each of the 16 rounds of dough with a rolling pin until they're 4 inches across. Stick the dough into the cups then top with a scoop of cherry pie filling followed by a spoonful of streusel topping made by combining the remaining ingredients: dry together first, then cutting the butter in and mixing until it forms coarse crumbs and then mix in the nuts.
Cook at 350 for 18 minutes until the little guys are golden brown. Perfect as a breakfast or after school snack--I love quick treats like these.
