Cherry Pie Cookies

Cherry Pie Cookies @createdbydiane


Bring on the CELEBRATING with these Cherry Pie Cookies!!!!



These are perfect for celebrating the 4th of July, or any summer get together. The color of them just makes you want to celebrate!

I baked the sugar cookie bottoms, in Wilton’s Muffin Top Pan. I just knew it would give these mini pies a deep dish taste, one bite and I knew I had made a winner! The cookie bottom is nice and flaky without being to sweet or heavy. The Cherry pie filing is just the right amount on these and the filling is held on with buttercream frosting.

These are easy to make and assemble, which I just LOVE.

I love summer and spending days on the beach or at the pool, relaxing. It seems when I think of summer the 4th of July always comes to mind. I have one memory of when my husband and I were first dating which was 20 years ago, but some days seems like yesterday. We met my parents on the beach to eat and see the fireworks go off. My favorite part was the pie my mom brought. I am a pie girl through and through!

These mini pies will be great this 4th of July what ever we plan on doing.

I’m giving away Wilton items to you can makes these too.

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2½ cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  1. Cream together butter and sugar.
  2. Add egg and vanilla.

Press 3 tablespoons of dough into each section of the Muffin Top Pan.

Bake cookies until edges are golden. Let cool completely before adding topping.

Place 8 cherries onto the center of each cookie

Begin to pipe the edge so the frosting hold the filling in the center.

I just LOVE red and white together!


Refrigerate at the end of the day if they aren’t all consumed by then. You can bake the cookies a day or so ahead of time and assemble the cherries and frosting the day of or day before serving.

I LOVE how flaky the cookie is but hold up to the filling so well.

You can even add festive Star Sprinkles for the Fouth of July!

    Getting together with family this 4th of July to cookout, hang out and just have a really great time. I have found several recipes on blogs and pinterest that I want to try out this 4th of July. Really excited for the 4th to get here so I can try my hand at these super cute recipes, like the one here!!!

  2. 3

    These are so adorable! Oh the combinations I could make. For the fourth this year we are doing…I have no idea. BBQ probably!

  3. 4

    My husband loves cherry pie and this would be perfect little bite side cherry dessert.

    This one is going into my recipe folder. Can’t wait to try it :)

    Love the cherry pie cookies! I think I’ll try making them for July 4. Wonder if you can use stabilized whip cream instead of frosting or he edge piping.

    • 10

      I’m sure you could, the buttercream really held the filling in well and they were great for days, with whipped cream I’m not sure they’d last as long, so I’d do the edges closer to serving.

    my plans for the 4th of July will be heading to one of our beautiful Long Island beaches with my family and friends.

    I might make these cherry pie cookies IF i win the Wilton pan. (hint hint 😉

    have a wonderful day.

    I keep seeing July 4th recipes and I’m like, “It’s too early for these!” But really, it’s not. Can’t believe it’ll be here so soon!

    These babies are so festive! They look great!

    I think it’s so strange that 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year (no morning after to recovery from those red white and blue jello shots). But nonetheless, there will be all day BBQ and local fireworks. :)

    I love Wilton products. I have so much of them that my husband said that if they need any, just give me a call, but you can never have to much for baking. I would love to win this so it can go with all I have now. I went to Created by Diane”, I already like (love) Wilton on facebook. I shared this on facebook. I went and repinned it. Right now just going to watch the fireworks here in town and cook out. I would love to have these by then so I can make some of these for my 6 grandkids. Also today is my birthday and I am hoping I can win this. Thanks for offering this great package for us to win. Thanks again

  32. 34

    Love these! :) Though I have a gathering planned in my head, the two things that are certain are a strawberry-blueberry pie with cool whip, and my annual viewing of 1776!
