Tim,
It sounds like they were nuked a little too much. Did they feel wet and a mushy? I've done it myself when I'm making Enchiladas. The corn tortillas got sticky, tore easily when I was wrapping them up. Same thing for the flour. I keep the mushy one's on the plate. Those are the one's that never gets used. It helps the others along shortening the nuke time. I hardly ever use that pusher. Even with pie dough just a light push tears the dough.

My youngest son, ( He's the Chef around here, when It's not me ) Suggested that instead of nuking them beforehand. Use the cutter, bottom side, ( is what they used at the time ) cut out either shell with a pairing knife. Preheat the pie maker. After the cycle, place either one in position and close the lid. Steam it for a minute until you can push it down quickly with a rubber spatula.
He says that to will make it pliable. Fill and eat up!

Munky.

Thanks Munky, I'll try that on my next attempt. I'm even thinking of laying the tortilla over a pie bottom shaped plastic mold when I nuke it. Maybe the tortilla would conform to the shape that way. I might even try the pusher itself as the mold.

Thanks Munky! I'll be careful! A few seconds in the MW shouldn't hurt it.

I made the little pizza pockets tonight. Only problem I had was the bottom pizza crust shrinking after I cut them. They sure did taste great though! I used pre made pizza dough and put in sauce, cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and bell peppers. I also made some using canned biscuits for the crust. They were a hit with my husband and son. I can't wait to make these when my other son and his family come to visit. I just know my grandsons will love the pie maker!

Tried it last night for Taco Pies. It worked great. Cut the bottoms and gave each of them 30 seconds over the pusher in the MW. The Corn Tortilla relaxed and formed itself around the pusher. Then they dropped right into the mold on the pie maker. Filled them with a 97% lean Hamburger mix with taco seasoning added while it cooked in the CI pan and then after that cooled, I added lots of diced tomatoes and sweet onion. Made four pies and could eat only three before I was stuffed.

Plenty of mix left for something this evening.

That flavor combo kind of gagged me a little.
