Individual Lattice Top Pies

Individual lattice top apple pies

Serve up these adorable and delicious mini fruit-filled pies at your Thanksgiving Day feast! These pies will be a huge hit with guests, and save you the trouble of cutting slices, because each person can just grab their own.

I filled these pies with prepared blueberry and apple filling, but you can use your favorite—strawberries, peaches, blackberries, raspberries, cherries, anything you like! This Thanksgiving pie recipe is so easy because we use prepared pie filling—and if you wanted to simplify even further, you could just buy prepared pie crusts too. To add a sparkly sweet touch, sprinkle some sugar on top. Oh, and don’t forget to top with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
