It is so fun to use. We used up the leftovers tonight in mini-pies for supper. They are so cute and it is easy to use, and clean up is a snap.

I have two large bags of wild blueberries from Maine that my grandaughter picked for me. I want to make some pies with them. I have the crust and puff pastry. So I am all set to go. Maybe after next week. I keep reading this thread in hopes it will make me want to get up and make them. This eating problem is beginning to get me depressed. I have no desire to cook anything.

Addie, I'm so sorry to hear of your tummy issues. Which day will you have your procedure done? I'll keep you in good thoughts.

**Message from the Mother ship**

Did you guys know people are willing to barter for pot pies? It's true.
I just had my kitchen/ bath's over head lighting fixtures fixed, replaced. Other repairs that needed done as well, that would have cost me quite a bit of money for to hire a professional to do. All that and then some for the sweet low price of a pie.
It was a honey of a deal.

Munky
Thank you, thank you!

And I need the name of that contractor!!!! It's almost sinful what I have been tempted to offer for home improvements.

I used a pre-rolled pie crust, but I can honestly say that I am stunned how easy this was....and delicious! It was extremely filling too.

Here are the pictures!
I want cherry chocolate pie!!! Your pies look great!!!

First Attempt and itís a Goodie.

I canít believe I have had my Breville Pie Maker 8 days already. Today I made Fresh Peach Pies. The recipe is posted over in the Sweet Mini Pies thread.

In the interim, I read or re-read the discussions in the 3 on-going threads. Book marked several recipes. Copied down some baking times.

Bought some Peaches. And vanilla ice cream, which I accidentally opened after dark one night with just the frig light on, to make sure it was secure. Itís not. The frig is way too close to the silverware /spoons drawer.

Now is one of those times I wish I had a camera so I could truly share this as a celebration. I guess I will be satisfied just to say the Pies turned out perfect. One got a little brown on the crimp edge, one didnít seal quite properly, but there was no leakage onto the pie maker, just a little runner of hot juice along a top crust edge. Not too bad. Any pie I have ever made, I cut slits in the tops, for steam escape or juices to bubble up. Every pic I see doesnít do this, and they still came out looking good.

I baked them 10 minutes and the green light went out at about the 9 minute mark. The Breville Pokey Stick does its job. The pies pass the taste test.

For dinner tonight I made CWS's Swedish Beef Stew Pot Pies. I measured out about a cup and a half of the stew, warmed it a little in the microwave, and then measured it out by 1/3 cup fulls with a slotted spoon, so not as much gravy/ sauce was added into the pies. Came out terrific. The stew made a lot, and these little cups don't hold as much as I thought. I ate 1 and part of another one. Still good. Will make some more, then I think I will freeze the remainder of the stew and a few pies too.

For those that have been looking for a 2 pie maker you got one now. No more excuses.

I did notice a few things that made me a little uncomfortable watching that video & actually knowing the pie maker as well as I do. Maybe because of the time constraints. Or dare I say it..? Might as well, I have nothing else to do right now. So I'll say what your all thinking. " Munky's a Pie Punk! LOL!!!!

They certainly had to work that dough into the sections didn't they? Anyone else notice how the cut bottom pieces were too large? I didn't see the pusher. Hope it is part of the accessories. With the depth of that unit it's going to be a problem. I wouldn't want to be pushing dough in like that while it's hot. He was using his bare hands. The way it was moving around on the counter the lid could drop down and burn you while your loading it up.

Munky.
