Now that the kids are headed back to school, it's a good idea to have new packed lunch ideas ready for them. My grandson loves when I prepare something special for him, especially if there's cheese involved because it's his favorite ingredient. To change up his traditional sandwich, I decided to make these mini ham and cheese pies; they've been a hit! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray or 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crusts (2 Count)
  • 6 slices ham
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 1 whipped egg
  • 6 cupcake liners

Directions

  • 1
    Sprinkle the surface of a cupcake mold with cooking spray or grease with butter to prevent the mini pies from sticking.
  • 2
    Cut one roll of Pillsbury™ pie crust dough into 6 equal parts (you're going to use one piece for each pie). Take the pieces of dough and cover the bottom of each mold.
  • 3
    Fill each mold with one slice of ham and one of cheese.
  • 4
    Take the next roll of dough and cut into 6 more pieces that you will use to close each pie. Once the pies have been closed, use a knife to make 3 small cuts on the top of each pastry to allow each pie to cook evenly.
  • 5
    Use a pastry brush to paint each pie with whipped egg.
  • 6
    Bake at 375°F for 20-25 minutes, or until the pies have browned. Let cool a bit before serving.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    For best results, the dough should be at room temperature to allow them to unroll easily.
  • tip 2
    You can serve these mini pies in pastry liners and place them in your child's lunchbox with their favorite fruit or drink.
  • tip 3
    You can use smoked turkey if you don't want to use ham, or simply fill it with just cheese.
  • tip 4
    These pies can be frozen and reheated in the microwave after they've been baked.
