The muffin tin is a very versatile piece of cookware. I feel like I use it for more non-muffin baking than for actual muffins sometimes. :-)  Its just perfect for making mini pies.  Start out by greasing your muffin tin. Roll out your dough and cut out circles for the base of your pie. I used a mini bowl to press into the dough, however, I imagine a canning jar lid would be about the right size.  Very carefully place the dough into the muffin tin. Its okay if some of the dough overlaps.

Now that your tins are full with crust and filling, its time to make a top! I had just enough dough to do the lattice approach, but a full coverage top would work great as well. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes once the tops are on.

I use about 4 tablespoons of hot water and 2 teaspoons of honey for my wash. Sprinkle a little sugar on the crust, and slide them in the oven for 30 minutes.

Let your pies cool slightly before taking them out of the tins, but be careful not to wait too long. It will be more difficult to release them from the muffin tin if theyve cooled completely.  Enjoy!

      I havent tried that yet, but its possible. I would cut down on the sugar by a tablespoon so its not as sweet. I will have to try baking some pot pies here in the next coming weeks to try it out. Thanks for the idea!
