Raise your hand if you love picnics! Living in San Diego with almost perfect weather year-round, we love doing picnics at the beach and the parks in our neighborhood.

Sometimes, we wrap up Chicken Fajita Burritos and take those on our picnic (so very So Cal of us!), other times we just grab a baguette, cheese, crackers and fruit and make it a charcuterie plate picnic and sometimes we invite friends and make it a potluck picnic, which is perfect for bringing these mini pies, also known as picnic pies (fitting!) or hand pies. Basically they’re an individual, hand-held pie that’s easy to transport!

Mini pies can be sweet or savory and since I’ve already made recipes for sweet Strawberry Mini Pies and Cranberry Pomegranate Mini Pies, I decided to go savory for these picnic pies!

These mini pies are made with a puff pastry crust and filled with a combination of fresh spinach, feta cheese crumbles, sun dried tomatoes, garlic, herbs and greek yogurt.

How to make Mini Pies with Puff Pastry

To make these mini pies with puff pastry, you’ll need two sheets of puff pastry dough. One piece of dough will be cut into circles with a round pastry cutter and will be the base of the mini pie, while the other piece of puff pastry dough will be cut into strips and used for weaving on top of the pies.

Can I make mini pies in a muffin tin?

Yes you can. While I used a Mini Tart Pan to make these pies, a muffin tin would also work. The end result would be just be a slightly different size and shape.
