so i really am unsure of what to call these.
they are similar to a pie in content, but the adorable little round shape really takes it in a different direction than a normal deep dish.
so, by no real logic other than the giddiness of my brain, i shall call them pouf pies. they are a cute and fun little treat to serve the ones you love. it's really quite simple...
cut circles out of a pie crust...
top with traditional pie fillings...
or some less traditional toppings...
seal it shut with another circle and top with a little sugar. bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes
all i can say is... yum!
~ role your crusts nice and thin to get a light texture ~
~ the best way to get your top crust to stick is by brushing on a little water ~
~ beat the sugar and vanilla into the cream cheese ~
~ again, a little water will help the sugar stick to the top ~
~ i used cinnomon & sugar on the apple pies ~
~ i used homemade vanilla sugar on the strawberry pies ~
because of the cream cheese, my strawberry pies kind of goobered a little bit.
but, that's ok, cuz they still taste just as good!
