TWINKLE TWINKLE LITTLE PIE STARS
I was inspired by pie pops from a blog, bakerella. I believe she got the idea from another site. Anyway, I didn't have pop sticks, nor did I feel it was necessary to use them. I think its just as cute to not have them! All I did was thaw out two sheets of ready puff pastry. Pre-heat oven to 200C. Cut the shapes out drop about a teaspoon of jam(I used raspberry) onto the middle of the star. Place another star on top and press the sides down with a fork. Paint a little egg wash on top and bake in an oven of 200C and 10mins later you have your mini pie stars. You could sprinkle a little sugar on top before it goes in the oven. Its a great food storage dessert or snack. There are so many different things you could use as a pie filling if you didn't have or didn't like jam. Some ideas:
Piece of chocolate
Peanutbutter(and a piece of chocolate!!) or Nutella
Tinned Pie Apples
Mash up some fresh or frozen strawberries or raspberries and mix in a little icing sugar
A caramel lolly or caramel top and fill with some chopped nuts
Anyway, there's a couple of ideas that can be found or stored in your cupboard.You could also dust with icing sugar for presentation.
The chidlers could help with this but mine were too busy watching MythBuster with daddy!!!
