Yes.  Muffin Pies.  I don’t know if they were a thing – but they are now…. and the possibilities are endless.

Muffin Pies …. with oatmeal crumb topping

They’re pies, they’re muffins – is that a tort? I don’t know. I worked an overnight at our local assisted living center and created this at 7:30 when I got home. They are freaking delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pie Dough
    • I am going to be honest this was one of those *gasp* pre-made ones that you just roll on out. Like I said – we are over 24 hours awake now.

→ cut into 12 pieces and roll thin – these kinds are always too thick.

  • Filling
    • 3 cups frozen berries – like Wymans!
    • ¼ c flour
    • ¼ c sugar
  • Crumb Topping /crumbtop
    • ½ c butter (1 stick) – cubed  (I cut into the 8 tablespoons then each tablespoon in half …)
    • 1 c brown sugar
    • ¾ c flour
    • ¾ c oatmeal – quick oat are fine NOT INSTANT
    • ½ tsp cinnamon
    • ¼ tsp salt

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 425º(F)

Grease muffin & flour tins – I used 2 metal pans – 6 spots each (totaling 12)

In one bowl: Mix all crumb together using a pastry cutter ( or kitchen-aid mixer with paddle attachment – or smoothie blender)

In second bowl: Mix berries, flour and sugar until berries are completely coated.                                     They should go from this:  IMG_0183  to this:  IMG_0185

Place your 12 little pie crusts into prepared tins. Spoon ¼ cup of berries into each.      Like so:

Cover (extremely liberally) each mini pie with crumb topping.

Bake for 16-18 minutes.

Remove from oven & pan – consume – as soon as possible – not because they get not so good as they cool – but because they are amazing. I also recommend a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top, ya know – dairy and stuff. Oh and then some caramel syrup… Enjoy!
