I made these for my husband’s “Food Day” at work. They were a hit. They are easy to make!
I buy Keebler’s mini already made pie crusts in the little tins.
3 bricks cream cheese softened
1 egg yolk
1 can of cherry pie filling
Add a little cinnamon and or allspice or nutmeg.
Add cream cheese, sugar, flour and vanilla into mixer on medium speed until combined. Add whole eggs and yolk all at once. Beat on LOW speed just until combined. Stir in the milk. The most important thing I learned is to not mix too much, it’s okay if it’s a little lumpy. I then fill the tins, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until top is golden. I use a fork to double check for doneness, if it comes out clean, it’s done! Add your topping of choice after they cool. I usually use cherries and sliced almonds. Watch how fast they disappear…
I used to detest stuffing, until my Mother-in-law made some. It was my first Holiday with the family and I tried the stuffing just to be polite. Oh is it good! This is a slight variation of Mom’s.
I usually make my own, but sometimes I buy the box. What really makes it, is the additions. It’s a lot of chopping, so sharpen your knives! That’s a picture of what I used in the last batch I made. I’ve also used raisins and walnuts. I hope this gave you some new ideas!
