I had some blueberry pie mix I needed to use and had 1 sheet of pie crust. I was going to make something I saw on FB that was made in ice cube trays but I didn't have any. Then I thought well I could make a small braid dessert. Then when I was turning on the oven I saw my mini cast iron skillet and thought OH I can made a pie in there. Just the right size for 1 also. I also had a small cast iron cookie skillet so use that one too. Aren't the just the cutest!
