Fresh mini strawberry pies with whipped cream was one of the desserts I made a few times last month. I usually make the 9-inch size pie, but I made these mini ones for a special dessert one evening.These mini strawberry pies are beautiful, delicious, and the perfect summer dessert.

These beautiful pies can be served when you need an individual dessert with any dinner. They are also perfect to serve at a 4th of July gathering. Some people prefer a smaller pie like these, instead of a large slice.

These mini pies can be made with a purchased pie crust or a homemade one. I used a recipe from one of my blogger friends, and it is so easy.  All Butter Flaky Pie Crust by Modern Honey.  

HOW TO MAKE MINI STRAWBERRY PIES:

INGREDIENTS:

fresh strawberries
sugar
cornstarch
strawberry gelatin
9 inch pie crust (refrigerated or homemade)
whipped topping (from a can or homemade)

Clean the strawberries, and slice them into quarters. I place them on paper towels to drain after washing.

Prepare the glaze by combining the sugar, cornstarch, strawberry gelation, and water in a medium size saucepan.  Whisk together constantly, until the mixture comes to a gentle boil.
Remove from the heat, and allow to cool. It will thicken as it cools.

Prepare a 9 or 10 inch pie crust. Using a 4-inch round cutter, cut 6 circles out of the dough. I used the outside ring of my mini tart pans.
Bake the pie crusts in tart pans, or mini pie pans. Cool prior to filling.

Divide the strawberries evenly between the baked pie shells.
Spoon the glaze over the strawberries. Chill the pies until ready to serve.

Prepare the homemade whipped topping or use a refrigerated one. Add to top of the pies when ready to serve.

In addition to making these mini strawberry pies, I used some fresh strawberries in these recipes:
