These mini pies have a filling of a cranberry orange preserve I made during Christmas but any jam or preserve can be used instead. It is perfect and just in time for Valentines Day. I used store bought pie crust to make this dish in super quick time but you can make your own pie crust. If making the pie crust at home, make it the day before and refrigerate so you could still make this dish quickly @sarchakra
