Another delicious festive treat to make for your loved ones this holiday season! These would be great dessert to serve at your holiday party or they make for yummy gifts too! Each mini pie is stuffed with fresh pears, our Pear Hazelnut Jam and topped with our Diced Roasted Hazelnuts. And not too mention they are adorable to look at!
Mini Pear Hazelnut Pies

2 Fresh local pears, peeled and diced small
Oregon Growers Pear Hazelnut Jam
Oregon Growers Diced Hazelnuts
Prepared pie crust
Powdered Sugar for dusting

In a mixing bowl, combine the fresh diced pears and 1/4 cup of Pear Hazelnut Jam and toss to incorporate. Set aside.

Roll out your prepared pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Using a 2 inch round cookie cutter, stamp out as many rounds as desired. Place each round in a mini muffin pan that has been lightly coated with a non stick spray. Press in dough to the bottom and sides of pan. Add a spoonful of pear filling into each pie, top with the Diced Roasted Hazelnuts. Using a fork you can press along outer edges of the dough for decorative look. Bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the crust is golden. Remove and immediately pop out each pie from the the pan and let cool on a cooling rack. When completely cooled lightly dust each with powdered sugar. Enjoy!
