I usually burn cakes and cookies, so I don’t bake much. But, I felt like making some mini pies for my son’s class to celebrate Pi Day. I looked on Pinterest and found some easy recipe using premade dough and fruit jams.
Thank goodness for Pillsbury Pie Crusts rolls! It was easy to use.
2.25″ round cookie cutter for the pie bottoms, and one size larger scalloped circle cookie cutter for the pie tops.
Cut pi slits on pie tops with a crab meat picker.
Add store-bought jams on the pie bottoms. Peach, blueberry, and cherry jams. Yum!
Brush egg wash around the pie bottoms before covering with the tops.
Press fork around the edge for decoration and to seal. Since the top pie piece was slightly larger, as I was pressing with the fork, I pushed the top piece in. I tried to align the top edge with the bottom edge to make the center puffy.
Paint egg wash on the top pieces before baking. Can’t remember the temperature setting, but I set it for what the Pillsbury Pie Crusts rolls direction said. I think I baked for over 20 minutes.
I love the thought of baking, but I rarely bake because of this. I tend to burn baked goods. These burnt pies are from bottom shelf in the oven.
Thankfully, top two trays came out okay.
My son told me it was tasty. I could not try them because we did not have enough for his class.
I was disappointed with my burnt pies, I wasn’t feeling creative with the packaging. Just clear bags and simple ties.
Still, they look so pretty! 🙂
It was very quick and easy to make mini pies with Pillsbury Pie Crusts rolls and jams. I’ll make sure to check my oven more often next time though.
Happy Pi Day!
