maybe I haven't had enough morning coffee. Thanks,
Get the piemaker hot, put the rangoons in and add about 2 tablespoons water to each cup, close and steam.

They will be closer in texture to a potsticker.

Shrek has a very loving Princess or visa versa.

Apple Pies - Day 1

I found a perfectly good Mini Apple Pie Recipe baked in the Breville pie maker on the interwebs. Theirs makes 6 pies, which I think is foolish leaving 2 empty slots going to waste. Mentally adjusted it to make 8 pies.

I ran up to the store and nabbed 5 Harrelson apples. This type of apple is crisp, tart, sweet and holds its shape in baking. Their recipe calls for 3 Large apples. How Big is a Large Apple. I better get 5. Thatís how you should do Math in school if you want bonus points on your homework. Get home. The flour bin is empty. Who didnít write this on a grocery list or replace inventory. Hmmm?

I ate an apple for lunch.

Apple Pies Day 2.

One would think making Mini Pies should be a shorter affair rather than a big production.

Set out for a bag of flour and replacement appleS. Today itís colder. I took the bus. Decided to stop at a favorite diner for breakfast on the way, then walk the rest of the way to the store. I had on a stocking cap and was warm enough. This route took me right by a Penzeys. Imagine that. I thought a little fresh cardamom might be a nice touch in the pie filling. Imagine I couldnít only buy an eensy jar of cardamom pods. Two hours and 2 apples, a bag of flour, a new carton of ice cream ( just in case) and a few assorted other things, I am back home and Now ready to Make Apple Pies. Yippee.

Made Pie crusts, divided and stuck the discs in the freezer to hasten chilling.

Peel slice and dice apples. Poach in a little apple cider and butter. Stirred together some brown sugar, cinnamon, a good pinch cardamom and a tbsp cornstarch. Stirred that in the apples after they were cooked al dente. Kept a fork near the stove to keep checking so they didnít get too soft.

Baked the pies for 14-15 minutes. Made 2 batches/ 8 pies total. There was a little apple left in the skillet, so I plopped a scoop ice cream in there to test out the proper ratio of pie filling to ice cream while the pies were baking.

These are now looking good lined up on a cooling rack.

If You Just Have To Have One

Saw this the other day @ Rite-Aid of all places. Seriously couldn't believe it.
But hey, for us that are true Die Hard Mini pie makers this was a funny find. If you just have to have one were really all set now.
My husband made the comment "Look! You Brevillians are now all over the place!"
