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.
I couldn't fiind the video of the show that aired yesterday; but posted it to give you more ideas (no matter the brand).

They were using it to make other dishes that didn't include dough. (That was part of the "draw" for me.) A lady called in asking if she could put hashbrowns on the bottom & top it with beaten eggs.

I left some ideas & links in the thread re Sweet Ideas. (Liked the cupcake etc ideas.)

The accesssories that came with also included little presses(?) in different shapes to cut out leaves, hearts ets. from the dough, & place them on top of the pie.

Enjoy.

Hope you found something that "grabs" you.

P.S. Cancelled the order, as I saw it elsewhere for about $20. One could buy 3 lol.

Will make some more, then I think I will freeze the remainder of the stew and a few pies too.
The stew freezes well. What kind of pastry did you use? I knew you were going to make mini-pies from the leftovers!

Lol Lol. You nailed that thought CWS. Making stew for pot pies was the idea from the get-go. I might have said this already. We went to Costco earlier, and my intention was to pick up some organic chix parts. But stew meat was on sale, so I bought that, which changed cooking plans. The goal Always included making pot pies from whatever I made. I made 8 beef stew pot pies, had bowls of stew 2-3 times and still froze quite a bit of the stew today. ( I added quite a few veggies) I am not "stewed out", but I do like a little variety. BTW, the stew tastes better on the 2nd day.

Notice, I did Not say I froze any Peach Pies.

I used Betty Crocker cookbook recipe with shortening (crisco). Didn't have any lard. I have not had success with a butter crust before. ALthough I think I read somewhere to freeze butter and use a box grater to get smaller pieces to incorporate in the dough.

My overall impression of the Breville pie maker is the depth of the cups is a little miserly when it come to serving something as a main dish. However, my waistline indicates this is probably a good thing. I think I also over-cooked the peach pies a little as the crusts were harder when the pies were cold. Used the same pastry recipe for the beef stew pot pies, and they were just fine. I microwaved warm ups, Not sure if I like that part or not yet.

Did someone say you can just drop a pie back in the pie maker and warm it up?? If so, How does that work to get the filling hot and not over cook the crust??

I think that would work better if you made the pies in cupcake papers, heated them up in the microwave and then finished off in the piemaker. I'd have to play with that. We usually just rewarm them in the microwave.
