Come On Up To The House

Mini Sugar Pies

Portugal has great mini pies that Lisbon is known for. They reminded me of my grandma’s sugar pie that she would make for us for every family gathering. As I was looking through cookbooks recently, I found a recipe that I based this off of. They are really quick and very easy.






Mini Sugar Pies

Make a quick puff pastry.

Puff Pastry

1 3/4  cup all purpose flour
6 tbsp butter
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2+ cup water

Custard Filling

1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
3 eggs
zest of orange (1 tsp)
2 tbsp powdered sugar

Mix ingredients together in your stand mixer. Once dough comes together, turn out onto a silpat on the counter. Roll out with a floured rolling pin. Dot with another 4 tbsp softened butter and fold dough over like an envelope. Roll out, turn and roll again. Put in the fridge for 15 minutes while you create the custard for the inside of the pies. After 15 minutes, roll out dough three more times. If you have time, let it sit in the fridge for another 15 minutes. I did not give myself enough time, so I continued on. Roll out to a rectangle shape and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll into a long tube (similar to cinnamon rolls) and cut into rolls. I got 9 from this recipe. Push down into buttered cupcake tins and bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Once they start looking golden. Take them out and pour in the filling. Bake for 15 minutes until set. Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon.

You can double the dough recipe if you would like to. I ended up with three custard dishes and 9 pies. The kids will more likely eat just the custard, so this works well for us.
