Red Zone Bites


  • 2 (2-count) packages refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 cans cherry pie filling
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a 12-count muffin pan with butter.
  2. Place a single sheet of pie dough on a floured surface. Using a 4-inch cookie cutter, cut 12 circles.
  3. Place each circle into a muffin cup, pushing down to the bottom. There should be excess dough at the top of the cup.
  4. Fill each cup with a few spoonfuls of filling, careful not to overfill.
  5. With the remaining pie dough, use a pizza cutter to cut strips of dough about a 1/4-inch thick.
  6. Lattice the strips’ edges to the top of the filling in each cup, cutting off the excess from the strips.
  7. Gently crimp the strips to the dough in the cup, ensuring the two are adhered.
  8. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with the water, and brush evenly onto the pie crust.
  9. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until crust is golden and the filling is bubbling.
