I wanted to include a recipe for mini-pies here. Making mini-pie crusts was fussy work, even when starting with ready-made dough. After all that effort, the pies were disappointing because the amount of crust relative to the filling was too high— there wasn’t enough of the really good stuff. Mini-crumble solves both of those problems. You might need to invest in some oven-proof ramekins, but it’s worth it!
