Last weekend Betty the Bunny got two, amazingly huge and delicious peaches from the Webster Street Market and has been dying to make pies of them- especially since summer is ending and it'll be harder to find good, fresh berries and peaches.
Luckily, yesterday she got a chance to make the peach and mixed berry pies to bring to a party. They were a huge hit! People loved them. It was also great because it's lactose-free, so everyone could enjoy them!
(And yes, you can Freeze them! :))
This will make about 26 End of Summer Mini Pies (13 peach and 13 berry) and 1 Chocolate Rose Pastry
Ingredients you will need:Flaky Pastry Crust
3 Cups of Berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
NO sugar- the fruit is sweet enough- plus it makes the pies healthier!
You will also need:
Sewing Needle (knife works too)
Top of Salt Shaker (or soda-pop lid, milk cap, ect)
Directions:Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Make the Flaky Pastry Crust and roll it out. Take a cup, rub the edges with flour, and use it like a cookie-cutter to cut our circles in the dough.
Place circles in muffin tin. (Make sure that you grease it well if it's not non-stick.)
Place peach slices in every-other crust and berries in every-other crust.
Put in oven for about 7 minutes. While the pies are in the oven cut out mini-circles using top of the salt shaker (or something around that size.) (This is where the needle really helped- if the dough got stuck in the salt shaker top, you can stab the dough out through one of the small holes using the needle.)
Take the small circles and cut 6 lines in it around the edge (don't cut all the way to the center.)
Pinch the corners that have been cut- this makes the flour petals.
Cut a long strip of dough and section it into triangles- these are the leaves.
Take out pies. Place leaves and flowers on top of the berries and peaches.
Place back into oven and let bake for around 5-6 more minutes- until the crust is golden-brown.
It is especially tasty served hot and with ice cream! Yum!
