I ADORE little pies! The Breville mini pie maker has been on my wish list for the last year, so when I found out about a three day sale at Williams-Sonoma, I just couldn't pass it up for $49.95. When I placed the order, I chatted with customer service for almost 20 minutes. She was very passionate about it and wanted to share her experience with me.
Our very first pies were cherry because cherry is our favorite. Mini egg breakfast pies are next on the list. I'm thinking with summer just around the corner, mini savory pies with a side salad will make nice summer meals.

In the instruction book, they recommend using either a pie crust or puff pasty. We've tried them both ways, and prefer the puffed pastry.
It's a sturdy, easy to clean machine. I bake for my mom and next door neighbor on a regular basis, so this will make it so simple. Who doesn't love a little pie? Having a jar of pie filling makes it even easier. Takes about 10 minutes to bake (not including 5 minutes prep time). Clean up is a breeze...just wipe.
