Tuna Mini Pies Recipe

These mini pies come together really quick and work well as either as appetizer or as a side dish. And if you're looking for a healthy meal, combine a couple of mini pies with a salad and you're good to go (I've also been know to take one of these to the office with me for a mid-morning snack...).

  • Dice the onion and the carrot (because I have picky kids I usually run them through the food processor instead) and mix them with the tuna

  • Roll the pie crust dough over a smooth surface sprinkled with flour and cut small shapes (two for each mini pie). I like to use cookie cutters for this, but you can free hand the shapes or just use a water glass instead.

  • Spread a bit of the filling on one of the crust cutouts and cover it with the other. Press the edges with your fingers to close the gaps and join both pieces of crust.
