Calories 386


  • 2 packs (17.3 oz ea.) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 8 stalks green onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup (1.5oz) Sunsweet® Pitted Dates, chopped
  • ¼ cup (1.5oz) Sunsweet® Amaz!n™ Prunes, chopped
  • ¼ cup (1.5oz) Sunsweet® Dried Cherries, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh sage, chopped
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Unfold thawed pastry sheets into a large rectangle. Use a 4-inch biscuit cutter or cookie cutter to cut 10 circles from the pastry sheet. Press the circles into a greased muffin tin.
  • Use a 3.5-inch biscuit or cookie cutter to cut 10 additional circles out of another pastry sheet. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix ground sausage, green onion, dried fruit, herbs, and spices.
  • Add ¼ cup of the meat mixture (I used an ice cream scoop) into each pastry cup.
  • Place smaller pastry circles on top and press to seal the edges of each mini pie.
  • Brush tops with whisked egg and cut slits in the top.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes, until golden brown. (They should reach an internal temperature of 160°F or 70°C.)
  • Cool 5 minutes before serving.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.
  • Yields 10 mini sausage pies.
