 Ingredients List

  • Pastry
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • Filling
  • 12 oz. bag frozen unsweetened pitted cherries, thawed + drained
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • Streusel
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped toasted walnuts
  • pinch (1/8 tsp.) of ground nutmeg
  • 1½ Tbsp. butter


Preheat the oven to 325F.
In a medium bowl, beat butter with cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour. The mixture will first be flaky but as you stir, it will form into dough consistency.
Divide pastry into 24 portions; shape into balls. Press balls onto the bottoms and up the sides of ungreased muffin cups. Set aside.

In a small saucepan, combine cherries, sugar, and cornstarch. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly.
Spoon filling evenly into each pastry-lined muffin cup.

In a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, walnuts, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender or knife, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle streusel evenly over each cherry filled muffin cup.
Bake for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden. Cool in muffin cups for 5 minutes then remove pie bites to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 24 pie bites (2-3 pie bites per person).
