I know, I know. I’ve got pie on the brain and should change the name of this blog to Pie & More Pies. I promise I’ll get back to crafty things soon!
These cute little pies from Our Best Bites were super easy to make. Since they were just testers, I used a thawed frozen pie crust (I know… gasp!) and the apple filling from the pie pops. If I decide to use these as the little gifts for our neighbors, maybe I’ll try to make the crust from scratch. Although Jackson’s two top teeth are trying to make their grand appearance and my free time has been seriously compromised so that’s a pretty big “maybe.”
I screwed up and bought the wrong mason jars. It was a little difficult getting the dough into the corners so I highly recommend buying the actual jars mentioned in the recipe. Also, I don’t know if the ones I bought were bigger than the standard 1/2 pint but I thought they were kinda big for individual servings. Jim and I easily shared one without getting food aggressive or anything. Heh, I thought the pie pops were too small and now these personal pies are too big? You just can’t please me. Bigger is probably better in this case, don’t want the neighbors to think I’m cheap, right?
So, I guess these are still contenders in the Holiday Neighbor Gifts T&T Trials of 2009. Up next…Homemade Turtles!
