Fruit Pie

As much as I like to cook, even I am surprised by this next fact.

I have never made a fruit pie...ever.

I love fruit pies....cherry, blueberry, peach, apple....you name it and I probably like it if it's fruit baked in crust.  I found this handy little tool to make mini-pie-pockets.  It's like your own homemade version of Hostess fruit pies!

Tonight I made cherry and apple pies to follow up the traditional corned beef new year dinner....blog on that coming soon.

In the cherries: pitted cherries, a little sugar, quick cooking tapioca, melted butter, vanilla, and almond extract.  Let it sit together for about 15 minutes.

For the apples: a sliced apple, a little sugar, melted butter, water, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

I cheated and used Pillsbury and then cut rectangles.

Put some filling into the pie press.

Put on a baking sheet and cut a couple slits in the top crust.  Brush with egg wash.  Sprinkle with some sugar....and some cinnamon on the apple if you'd like.

And then bake for 18-22 minutes at 400 degrees.  And eat!


  1. I wish I had corned beef, cabbage, and an apple one of these with you guys today...Happy New Year!

  2. Where did you get that gadget?

  3. Happy New Year to you, too! I haven't had apple yet, but the cherry was pretty tasty.

    I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond. It's a Wilton thing with the baking gadgets on the wall.
