Straight up, this is a public service announcement! I saw this SOMEwhere, and instantly I knew I HAD to do it. These were just too precious, and too easy not to share. After I made them and posted a couple of photos on my personal page, there were so many people who shared memories of doing this as a kid. Like "I used to make 'baby pies' out of pie dough scraps in mayonnaise lids," etc. It turned out to be a fun walk down memory lane. Who knew?! Funny thing about stuff like that - the old, simple ways sometimes got forgotten by fast moving, high tech stuff... but revisiting the old stuff can be SO MUCH FUN!
I could totally see these being perfect for anything from a dinner party to a bridal luncheon to a picnic. And on the other end of the spectrum, these would also make great savory pies. Just imagine the possibilities - meat pies, taco pies, chicken pot pies, you name it!
- 2 boxes (will have 1 pie dough left over)
- 1 egg yolk for the egg wash
