MINI PIE DESSERT BOARD
All of the magic starts with mini pies. I love how easy Marie Callendar's dessert pies are to prepare. I stocked up on their Peach Pies, but you can choose from one of their many yummy options. Set out all of the ingredients and toppings and let everyone in your family make their own delicious creation. This dessert idea is fun and memorable – I love it!
The toppings don't have to be complicated to make it fun. Keep it simple and delicious. Here's what I used to make my mini pie charcuterie board:
- Marie Callender's Peach Pies (or a flavor of your choice)
- Jeni's Sweet Cream Biscuits & Peach Jam (or a flavor of your choice)
- Reddi Wip Whipped Cream
- Salted Caramel
- Additional Sliced Peaches
- Edible Flower Decorations
Arrange the prepared pies on a large serving tray and have fun adding the toppings on or around the tray. You can keep it really simple or get a little fancy with extra toppings.
HOW TO EMBELLISH A STORE-BOUGHT PIE
To make your mini pies extra memorable, you can embellish them easily. Here are some easy ideas on how to make your store-bought pies look extra cute.
- Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes out of refrigerated pie crust and bake them to place on top of the pies. I loved using a small leaf cookie cutter for mine.
- Add thinly sliced fruits (peaches in this case) on top.
- Add edible decorations, such as the white flowers used in mine.
Whatever you decide, have fun with your creations. Each pie is customizable, just lay out the options and let your family choose their own favorites.
Once everything is set up, everyone can dig in! I absolutely love the idea of letting everyone pick and choose their own fun dessert. Yum.
No matter how much time you have on your hands, you can set up something lovely to enjoy as a family. These pies are self-serve, making it a whole lot easier for everyone to dig in!
