How to Make Mini Strawberry Pies
Preheat your oven to 350 F or 175 C degrees. Roll out the cookie dough with the help of a rolling pin and cut out circles.
Place each circle into the muffin tin and pop it in the oven so it can bake the crusts for the mini pies we are going to make later. Bake for about 15-18 minutes or until golden brown, let them cool completely before serving.
In a large mixing bowl, combine mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and whipping cream. Mix until soft peaks form and add in the lemon zest. Decorate chilled pie shells with the filling and top each with sliced fresh strawberries. Enjoy.
