Mini Strawberry Pies ~ just 5 ingredients to delicious, simple, bite size pies loaded with fresh sweet strawberries in a flaky crust.

If you like strawberry pie, you’re in for a treat. My husband said these Mini Strawberry Pies took him back to the ones his aunt used to bring him as a special treat from Sanders where she worked when he was a little boy. They remind me of the mile high strawberry pie at Elias Brothers Big Boy’s, one of our favorite restaurants when our girls were small.

We spent a lot of Friday evenings in those vinyl booths scanning the menu only to order the same thing each time. It was a great way to wind down the week but the girls’ favorite part was after dinner when we’d head across the street to K-Mart so they could choose a new outfit for their Barbie (who already had an enviable wardrobe).

Maybe you’ll find some nostalgia in these pies, too. There are just 5 ingredients to make them and if you want to top them with whipped cream (they’re good either way), a total of 6. They couldn’t be any simpler to make and if you’re like me, you’ll agree everything better in a mini version.
