I built this board on my Big Board. It is a 26-inch food-safe board with handles for easy carrying and raised sides so nothing slips off. Wait until you see the amazed looks on your guests’ faces when you bring out this fully loaded board! 

Why I love this epic Summer Mini Pie Board

  • This is a no-cook board! This easy dessert board is loaded with mini pies that you can purchase premade. All you need to do is add some whipped cream and garnishes to the board, and it’s good to go!
  • Mini pies are so much better than big pies. They’re cuter, and people can try a few different kinds.
  • You can prepare it ahead of time, then whip the cream and serve! It’s that easy!

How to make this epic Summer Mini Pie Board

  1. Ensure you’ve got a flat, sturdy spot to place your Big Board loaded with goodies. Have plates and napkins nearby for your guests.
  2. Place a large bowl in the center of the board. You’ll add your whipped cream to this bowl.
  3. Arrange the mini pies around the board. You can add cute little tags so that your guests know what kind of pies they are.
  4. Place the fruit in the spaces between the pies. I love using these pie-shaped dishes. They look so cute on the board when loaded with fruit and other garnishes.
  5. Before serving, whip the whipped cream until thick. Whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla and gently mix with a large spoon.
  6. Transfer the whipped cream to the bowl in the center of the board, garnish with cherries or fruit, and serve!

Tips & substitutions

  • I find mini pies at Walmart, but many other bakeries and large grocery stores sell them. Use your favorite selection of mini fruit pies. Just ensure you have a good variety for your guests.
  • Use fresh fruit to garnish your board, not frozen. Frozen fruit will be too watery and hard to eat.
  • For the best texture, make the whipped cream just before serving. 
  • Where did I get the cute little pie shaped dishes? Easy to buy, they fit so nicely on the big board.

Serving suggestions

This is such an amazing board to share with friends. I love serving it after a summery Chili-Lime Chicken Thighs or Lemon Chicken Gnocchi dinner.  Sometimes we skip the meal and just feast on finger foods. This mini pie board goes well with appetizers like Lemon Ricotta Bruschetta and prosciutto-wrapped mini peppers

Storage

Store any leftover pies in an airtight container on the counter for 1-2 days. The fruit can be kept in the fridge for 1-2 days, but the whipped cream will not keep once it’s been whipped.
