You can make a tasty and flaky pie in just 30 minutes using ready-made puff pastry. The pie can be both sweet and nourishing, depending on the chosen filling. These pastries are a real lifesaver that will help feed your family and help you quickly get ready to welcome guests.

5-Minute Crafts collected 5 options for ready-made dough pies with various fillings that can be cooked really quick.

5. Cherry pie

You’ll need:

  • 18 oz of ready-made puff pastry dough
  • 18-20 oz of cherries without pits (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2—1 glass of sugar (as per your taste)
  • 2 tbsp of potato (or corn) starch
  • 1 egg glazing the pie
  • vegetable oil for greasing the baking mold

How to cook:

1. If you are using frozen cherries, take them out of the freezer in advance. Place them into a bowl to thaw. Drain the cherry juice after thawing — you can use it to make cherry juice later.

2. Roll out the dough. Grease the baking mold with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Place the dough into the mold. Pierce it with a fork in several places.

3. Prepare the filling — mix cherries, sugar, and starch in a separate bowl.

4. Put the filling onto the dough.

5. Decorate the pie as per your taste. You can use ideas from this article.

6. Break an egg into a bowl. Whisk. Apply the mixture of egg white and yolk with the help of a pastry brush to make the cake golden brown.

7. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350°F until ready.

4. Closed pie with leek and eggs

You’ll need:

  • 18 oz of ready-made puff pastry dough
  • 1 bunch of leeks
  • 7 eggs (fewer is ok) for the filling and 1 egg for glazing the pie
  • 2-4 oz of any firm cheese
  • salt as per your taste
  • vegetable oil for greasing the baking mold

How to cook:

1. Boil the eggs.

2. Split the dough into 2 parts. Roll out one part and grease the baking dish with a thin layer of vegetable oil. Move the dough into the mold. Pierce it in several places with a fork.

3. Roll out the second part of the dough and put it aside.

4. Prepare the stuffing. To do it, chop the leeks and boiled eggs, mix them in a separate bowl. Add salt and mix again.

5. Put the stuffing onto the dough.

6. Sprinkle grated cheese on top.

7. Cover the pie with the part of the dough you had put aside. Decorate as per your taste. Pierce the dough with a fork in several places to let the hot steam out (in our case, the cut in the shape of the flower on the top of the pie serves this function).

8. Break an egg into a bowl. Whisk. Apply the mixture of egg white and yolk with the help of a pastry brush to make the cake golden brown.

9. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350°F until ready.

2. Finely chop the onion. Fry it in a pan with a little vegetable oil until golden brown.

3. Grate the cheese on a coarse grater.

4. Put the onions on the dough first, and then the grated cheese.

5. Mix an egg, sour cream, and a pinch of Mediterranean herbs. Pour this mixture over the top of the filling.
