Tis the season I make kolache and always end up with some extra fruity pie filling. So if you have some extra pie filling or just some late night munchies for a pie, here you go!
Recipe for one mini pie (made in a regular cupcake pan)
1T chilled butter
1–2t ice water
Mix ingredients with a fork to disperse the butter throughout. Add enough water to make the dough stick together. Now, in theory you could chill and roll the dough out. Or, if you are lazy like me just spray your little cupcake tin, and form the dough like you would a little clay pot and stuff it in the tin. If you want your mini pie to look fancy feel free to use a fork all the way around the top of the crust to make a crimp pattern. Fill with left over pie filling. Bake at 375F for about 13-17 min. I know this is going to sound like a grandma way of cooking, but just cook until you get that "pie smell". Then tadah! Pie for one :)
Also, because during the holiday season you can't have enough sugar, I sprinkle sugar all over the top of the pie and crust.
Fall is my favorite season. Cooler weather, caramel apples, pumpkin carving, leaves changing color....the list goes on :) Presently, all my favorite inspiration is on pinterest. Have you seen it yet? I like to think of pinterest as visual bookmarking. For example, here is a link to one of my boards I've started about different typefaces I <3. One of my favs I've bookmarked is printable halloween bags. How great are these?
I've been designing things since a very young age. In fact, my first major piece of artwork was at the age of two on a freshly painted kitchen wall. It needed a colorful crayon mural...I saw and I conquered.
Currently my blog is in a bit of an overhaul. Soon this blog will actually be used! Mini adventures and design inspirations are on their way :) For now click the links above to find me on twitter or check out my portfolio. Ciao!
