STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB SWEETIE PIES


Just because the holiday celebrations are over,
doesn't mean you have to stop dazzling your family and guests with a great presentation! 
No get-together would be complete without fun bites of deliciousness! 



Some baking products are simply wonderful to invest in. Little baking molds, pie makers, muffin tins, etc.can allow you to show your creativity in the kitchen! If you love baking, you probably already have an array of these products, but if you are just starting out.....shop around and see what peaks your interest! It's just fun y'all! I know your family is going to so enjoy it when you showcase your baking skills! I adore this little lattice pie mold. 


And you know who else loves this?
 Little tiny hands that would so love to hold onto their own little pie! 



Luke and Mae..sharing a moment of creativity


STRAWBERRY-RHUBARB PIES
Combine 1 1/2 cups sugar, 3 T. quick-cooking tapioca, 1/4 t. salt and 1/4 t. nutmeg. Add 1 lb. rhubarb, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (about 3 cups) and 1 cup of fresh sliced strawberries. Mix together to coat fruit. Let stand for 20-30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the little pie pastries in your pastry pie maker.Fill each individual pie with 2 tablespoons of the filling.

Bake at 375 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.


This is how the darling likes to eat his! 
I think I am going to join him on this one!

It's a Foodie Friday Day!

  4. O, Mercy Me, Estelle...you surely know how to bring a grown woman to her knees....These look absolutely amazing and sooo delicious. I MUST make these.
    Now I know what to get my secret pal in our Bunco group...she is a cook and this little lattice thing will thrill her to pieces...especially if I make a few of your little sweetie pies to go along with it. THANKS for the inspiration. (hope Bed bath and Beyond have these)......

    1. Ha...thank you BJ! These are darling aren't they? And you can use any fruit pie filling you wish! I hope you are able to find one. Williams Sonoma used to carry one smiliar but no longer stock these. I was able to find mine on Amazon probably five years ago. This would certainly make a precious gift for someone who loves to bake! Great idea! Hugs and hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
