Swap blueberries or peaches for the cherries in this recipe to change up the two-bite pies. Ingredients 1/2 cup butter 3 oz cream cheese, softened 1 cup plus 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour 2 tbsp chopped toastedwalnut or pecans 2 tbsp brown sugar 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg 1½ tbsp butter 2 cups fresh or frozen tart red cherries (thawed if frozen) 1/3 cup granulated sugar 2 tsp cornstarch Directions Preheat oven to 325°F. In a medium mixing bowl beat the ½ cup butter and the cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until combined. Stir in the 1 cup flour. Shape dough into 24 balls. Press the balls evenly into the bottoms and up the sides of 24 ungreased 1¾-inch muffin cups. For streusel, in a small bowl stir together the 2 tablespoons flour, the walnuts, brown sugar, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender, cut in the 1½ tablespoons butter until mixture is crumbly. Set aside. For filling, in a small saucepan combine the cherries, granulated sugar, and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat until cherries release juices, stirring occasionally. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon of the filling into each pastry-lined cup. Sprinkle filled cups evenly with streusel. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool bites in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Carefully transfer to a wire rack and let cool.
