What if you could make a delicious dessert in less than 25 minutes, prep and baking including? And we’re not talking Greek Yogurt with fresh fruits and honey here.

Nah, we’re talking real dessert here. I seriously cannot express how much I loved these Mini Strawberry Pies. I had a friend coming over for lunch yesterday and we made those summery mini pies.

We each ate one Mini Strawberry Pie before lunch, just to ‘taste’ them and make sure they were good, and another mini pie for dessert, just because we could.

And in case you care, we then suffered A LOT in Body Attack class. But in a good way, because it’s good for us and we had two Mini Strawberry Pies to get rid of before they come all the way down to our hips.

I know it’s basically not the way it works. You won’t be fine if you eat 200 cals worth of Mini Strawberry Pie, then sweat those 200 calories out at the gym. But that’s what I like to believe from time to time when I really want to stuff my face with homemade mini pies.

We all do that every once in a while, right? Anyway, if you eat one Strawberry Mini Pie, you’ll be just fine! And if you eat two mini pies, I’ll just look away and pretend I didn’t see anything 😉

Recipe Notes

These mini pies must be served when warm!

If you eat two pies instead of one, that's fine, I won't tell because that's precisely what I did.
