Looking for a simple bite-sized dessert to make?! These are quick, easy and simple– I made my Dad a Lemon Meringue Pie for Father’s Day on Sunday with Pillsbury® pie crust and I had one roll of pie crust leftover. First of all, I love love love using Pillsbury® pie crust because it is so easy and it’s delicious! It also always turns into a perfectly light golden brown crust when it is baked properly. Secondly, there are so many different ways to use pie crust! Check out my Apple Cinnamon Pie Crust Cookie recipe HERE. There is also nothing wrong with making your pie crust from scratch of course, it just will take a bit more time.
There are only 5 ingredients to make these bites so you should definitely give them a try. They are not too sweet and you can also top these with fresh diced strawberries. If you like your cannoli filling a little sweeter, add ½ cup of powdered sugar instead of 1/3 cup. The mascarpone cheese is like an Italian cream cheese so it will make your filling extra creamy. You will probably have extra filling so you can either make more pie cups if you have more pie crust, or you can eat the filling as it is for a dessert or sweet snack. Just scoop into a small bowl add chocolate chips and enjoy! It would also count as low-carb too if you ate it this way 😉
