How to Make Any Flavor Pie Cups

Looking for an easy dessert that preps in a snap? We’ve got just the potluck-approved recipe you’ve been searching for. Bonus: You’re less than five ingredients away from your new favorite treat.

Step 1: Choose Your Base

When it comes to dessert, you want something simple and sweet. Starting with Pillsbury™ cinnamon rolls or pie crust, these low-ingredient treats are perfect for bringing to a potluck, surprising your coworkers or sitting down to enjoy with your family.

Pie Crust

Use a cookie cutter to cut out rounds from pie crust

For a flaky, traditional pie taste, use one box of Pillsbury™ pie crusts; cut out 12 rounds and place in an ungreased muffin tin. Our foolproof Cherry Pie Cups use this method and take 15 minutes to prep (and use only two ingredients!).

Cinnamon Rolls

Press cinnamon rolls into muffin cups

Surprised? Our Pillsbury™ refrigerated flaky cinnamon rolls put a delicious spin on a classic crust with their cinnamon swirls and sweet icing—just try our 2-Ingredient Apple Pie Cups! Start with one can of cinnamon rolls and place each roll, cinnamon side-up, into a standard-size muffin tin. Press each roll into the bottom and sides to form cups.

Step 2: Pick Your Filling

Fill muffin cups with cherry or blueberry filling

One of the best parts of this recipe is how easy it is to customize to your own tastes! All you need to do is choose your pie filling flavor, add two tablespoons on top of your base and bake. Here are some of our favorite fillings:

  • Blueberry
  • Strawberry
  • Cherry
  • Apple
  • Mixed Berry
  • Peach
  • Blackberry
  • Raspberry
