Mini Cherry Pies

We had a bit of extra dough leftover, and the oldest used some jelly tins to make itty-bitty cherry pies.  He got this idea from a book we used to read, many years ago, and has been doing it since.  Pop some dough in the tin, chop up a maraschino cherry, cover it up, and bake for just a couple of minutes!
