At Last: Two-Bite Pies

crimpsTwo-bite brownies, two-bite cookies, two-bite scones—the best part of a two-bite treat is that you can eat multiple two-bite treats (right? Right!). But I’d never seen a pie version of tiny treats until I discovered The Pie Society, a little spot  in Austin that makes what they call crimps—and what I happily call two-bite pies. The best part is that the normal pie ratio of crust to filling is reversed—these pack more of the buttery, flaky crust into each bite. Then I started searching for recipes, and found a whole world of miniature pies, often called hand pies. Think of it as pie’s attempt to channel the cupcake. Cute!
