These Mini Creamy and Cheesy Chicken Pies are the perfect canapes for your next gathering. You can make them in advance and simply cook them in the oven before you wish to serve them.

To make these mini pies couldn’t be simpler. Start by making the filling for the pies. To assemble the pies, roll out puff pastry and use a cookie cutter to cut as many circles as you can (about 40-45). Brush the edges of the circle with egg wash and place a spoonful of the cooled filling in the middle. Place the second pastry circle on top and press along the edges, and crimp using a fork. Place the pies on baking sheets, leaving 1 inch of space between each pie. Brush with egg wash, and make two holes in the top to allow air to escape. Bake in the oven until the top is puffed up and golden.
