Celebrate Pi Day with Berry Tartlets

Wouldn't these be cute at a dinner party?
     How are you celebrating pi Day? With pie, I hope. "Easy as pie" or so the saying goes. Pie really is an easy dessert to make, especially if you use store bought crusts. I decided to make some pie-lettes for our celebration of pi Day for easier portion control (and to use my new silicone baking cups!)...now the problem is that I want to eat five of them...
     I used a frozen berry combination of raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry for the filling. You could use whatever filling you like. Some other pie fillings I've used include Strawberry, apple (I can't believe I haven't posted that!), and peach.
     

Makes about 16 pie-lettes
1 pkg Refrigerated pie crusts
5-6 cups berries (I thawed some berry medley frozen berries)
2/3 c sugar
1/4 c flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp lemon juice
1 Tbl butter (to dot before baking)
  • Remove pie crusts from package. Use a cup about an inch bigger around than your muffin cup to cut out little pie crust circles. Place each circle into the muffin cups.Make as many as you can, then re-roll the crust to make more circles.
  • Combine the berries and the rest of the ingredients. Toss to mix. 
  • Place about 2 Tablespoons of the filling into each crust. Blot with butter. 
  • Bake at 350* for about 20 minutes or until bubbly and the crusts are barely golden.
