What do you do when it gets hot?
Air conditioned stores…no sweat…and a great excuse to buy things!
This weekend Hubby and I went to the mall and gravitated toward one of my favorite stores, Williams Sonoma.
I was in the baking section and admiring this cute little pocket pie mold.
After I left the store, he surprised me with it.
He’s no dummy.
He well knows that he gains here.
So here’s my little adventure in pocket pies!
He originally wanted little chicken pot pies but come on…
I had a bowl of these beauties in the frig!
The filling was berries, lemon zest, sugar, cinnamon, cornstarch and vanilla. (Printable Recipe here)
I did ‘shortcut’ today and used pre-made pie dough. (I did mention it was hot, right?)
The baby pie mold provides a cut-out for both side of the pies.
You cut them out…
Place the cutout one each side of the mold.
Fill with two tbsp. of filling…
Put a tad of egg wash around the edges…
Cuteness on a pan!
Bake for 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
My berry pies did run a bit…but berry pies do anyways so it didn’t bother me.
Sweetness on a plate….
Speaking of plates….I did a little more shopping this weekend as Hubby and I went to a local antique mall to escape the heat.
I came out with these beauties…
I can’t wait to use them this week!
Nothing cost me more than $12…
I think I’ll make recipes up just for these plates!
Stay cool and share the sweetness this week!
