Okay, I've ordered a pie maker! It should be here next week. Sounds like it will be fun to try!

Did you order the cookbook as well? I just love my pie maker infact my grandson is here and we are going to make some cherry pies and apple as well. Should be really good.
Enjoy your pie maker.

I thought about it but figured I'd save a bit of money for now and start with these TNT recipes from my friends here at DC. I can always ask for the cookbook for Christmas if I run out of things to make.

Yea! Another convert! You will love it, it takes care of leftovers like crazy! Makes it easy to take for lunches.

I hope you like purple, the Mothership will swing by and help you out with recipes and any other questions.

I even made polenta crusts with mine, put tamale meat and cheese in them.

Mean Machine: Can it prepare Canolli & Calzone ?

Buon Giorno,

Mean machine, I must say ...

Would this machine be purchase-able via Amazon for European Union electrical sockets ?

Good question ... I shall certainly check into this ...

Princess Fiona, has certainly done a phenomenal job on her treatise with all her concoctions ... However, could it prepare Calzone ? Canolli ?

Some quick ideas off top of my think tank are:

1. calzone
2. canolli
3. Shepherd´s Pie
4. Minature Beef Wellington in pastry
5. Could it work with Phyllo ? Spanakopita Spinach Feta Pastry ?


Interesting post & Contributions and thanks so much for all the work that has gone into it.

Have a wonderful August,
Ciao, Margaux.

I've used both Puff pastry and Phyllo in the Piemaker, the filling ideas are endless.

Savory Mini Pies - Tips, Ideas and Recipes Today was the first chance I've had to try this beauty out. I made 2 separate crusts. Butter puff for the top. And a regular pie crust for the bottoms. They took about 15 minutes to cook. Made a Chicken pot pie, and a Chile pot pie's loaded up with cheese. The portion was a bit much for me. Couldn't finish one. Between the filling and crusts, they were rich tasting, a great combination of doughs. Very filling. The pie maker was a breeze to use. Simple clean up. Cooked evenly. The only thing I wish It had come with is something non abrasive to lift the cooked pies out with. When they were finished cooking they were heavy. These are not the light banquet frozen pies. When pressing the dough shell into it. I found that dipping the cutters into flour helped it from sticking to the dough. Other then those minor things. It's a great versatile product. Munky.
