I was into target picking up some Mucinex for my SO, and as usual I took a walk through the kitchen section. Guess what they had on clearance? The Sunbeam mini pie maker(4 slot) for $8.98!!!! At that price I thought that it would be fun to try.

Maybe I'll make some tomorrow...
I would have picked it up, too! I wonder if our Target has any for that price...I still have Christmas presents to buy.

It wouldn't hurt to look. I think that they are clearing out some things to make room for this holiday's stock. These and the cupcake and cake pop makers were popular last year, who knows what it will be this year!

$8.98 was just too crazy to pass up!

I've been playing with the pie machine today, and I'll be darned it IS a fun little gadget!

First I made apple pies



And I had my doubts that pecan pie would cook in 10-11 minutes, but I was successful!



With the apple pie, I made a filling by cooking the apples in a bit of butter, added sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch, cooked that until thick. Then a lightbulb went on and I remembered that I had some dolce de leche so I mixed that in too, the filling was great! I used homemade pie crust and it came out beautifully flaky.

For the pecan, I was just curious to see if it would work so I ran to the store and got some pillsbury pre-made crusts. I used the recipe on the Karo bottle. This made 11 mini pies. Each crust made 4 pies, and I gathered the scraps and rolled out 3 more. I may have gotten another crust if I had tried, there would have been enough filling for 1 more.

I liked the homemade crust best, it didn't brown as quickly and tastes a lot better, but the pre-made was easy to work with and quick.

Had to take pictures with my phone because all of my batteries are dead for my good camera.

Well HEYYYY, HEYYYY, Bake Chef!

Awesome looking pies. Great job!

Your suits ready for pick up by 5pm Pacific time. After hours late fees can and will apply! Willing to settle for a Pecan pie.
Welcome aboard!

Out and over... No wait! It's over and out

Munky.

Beautiful Pies! Nice to know our tips and tricks are helping folks out with their first pies. Shrek is doing crab rangoons in the piemaker tomorrow, not fried, but steamed so he can eat them, too!
