with graduation coming and a party that i am helping to host for one of my besties, i almost forgot about memorial day coming up!
so lickety split we better get a patriotic treat or craft before the holiday comes and goes right?
how about some good ole american apple pie.
and let's do it mini size.
i got the pie cutters at world market from the clearance rack with the box all ripped up in the back (that you can't see) but you can always use
a regular 'ole star cutter for these too.
using this cutter just helps in the filling process. but i think if you don't have this cutter, you can cut out a star and then another one just slightly bigger so you can put them together and seal it yourself with your fingers.
anyhow, here's how this cutter works:
the cutters give you the option for the lattice detail like you see on the box in the first pic but i opted outta that. now that the pies are ready, let's decorate them.
use a dry brush to clean up the crazy sprinkle mess before popping them in the oven or they will turn into cooked sprinkle puddles.
then bake according to pie package instructions.
i baked these at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.
and there you have it.
oh say can you see!
by the pie's early light.
what so proudly we hold,
at the mini pies so gleaming...
