How To Make Mini Egg Pies
Not your typical custard-filled dessert, these mini egg pies are literally egg baked in a buttery crust – which are fun and easy to make as they are to eat.
Preheat oven to 430 degrees F.
Using a cup or mug with roughly the same diameter as the bottoms of the muffin tin, cut out 3 circles of puff pastry dough. Make sure to cut the circles out as closely as possible to save dough.
With the remaining dough, cut out strips to wrap around the inside of the muffin tin cups. The strips should be about three centimeters (or 1 inch) wider than the depth of the muffin tin cups.
Rub oil in the bottom of 3 to 4 cups in the center of your muffin tin. Place the puff pastry dough circles at the bottom of the cups, then wrap the dough strips along the walls of the cups. The dough strips should come up a couple of centimeters (about an inch) taller than the wall of each muffin tin cup.
Using fingers, pinch and press the beginning and end of the strips together and then press the edges of the strips down near the edges of the circles to create one cohesive dough cup.
Crack one egg into each dough cup and then season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Working carefully, pinch small sections of the tops of each dough wall together, crimping around the edge to bend the dough closer to the center, and make five crimped crests on the top of each pie. There will still be a circle in the middle with an exposed egg, and that is okay.
Place the muffin tin on a center rack in the oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the puff pastry is golden brown and the egg looks set. Remove from muffin tin. Enjoy!
