Earlier this year, I was looking for a recipe to use up some roast turkey left-overs and I came across a recipe for Turkey Pot Pie Soup. Turns out there are a lot of "pot pie" soup recipes and many suggest making crackers from pie crust. I took that suggestion and used some Corgi Shaped Cookie Cutters. I just happened to have one sheet of left-over refrigerator pie crust that I needed to use up anyway. The recipe said to cut discs or shapes from the pie crust, place on parchment lined cookie sheet, brush with a bit of milk and bake at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. I added just a sprinkle of sea salt to the top too. Turns out, I needed to bake about 15-20 minutes to get a nice golden cracker, but they were very tasty and just perfect as a garnish for the soup. Ta-da:
I made some of each breed, those with tails and those without tails.
So....yesterday, I noticed a site that shows how to make cute fried potatoes. Slice them and make them into smiley faces. Use a straw to cut eyes and a spoon's edge to make the smile. And it struck me that this would be totally cute as crackers for soup and such. Not from potato, but from pie crust or other dough. A great addition to soup for a rainy day, or on a charcuterie board for a holiday party?
Smiles make us smile?
