postheadericon Sweet Pocket Pies and fillings

First, make 1 batch (or a double batch) of the Perfect Pie Crust. Additionally, I recommend the cupcake-size foil tins to help support the pocket pies.

Then, choose your filling(s), and prepare those while the pie crust rests and chills. Each filling is designed to fill 6-8 pocket pies

Pie Fillings


  • Purchase 1 can cherry pie filling

Open and set aside. This is the super-easy one


  • 2-3 apples, peeled, cored, & diced

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2-3 TBS sugar
  • 1 TBS tapioca
  • 1 TBS lemon juice

Toss all together, add more cinnamon or sugar to taste. Ideally grind a little nutmeg in there too. Set aside.

Chocolate Ganache

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

  • 1 TBS margarine/shortening
  • 2 TBS coconut milk (or other milk substitute)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

Microwave the first 3 ingredients together for about 1 minute. Stir until well combined. Add powdered sugar, and stir well. Set aside.


  • some frozen blueberries

  • some sugar

let children mix blueberries and sugar in their own mini-pies.

Any other pie fillings you like – peaches, nectarines, whatever you have on hand.
