Here's a newly released cookbook featuring pies in a jar or a muffin tin. What a great idea. Make individual pies for your family and friends. It will allow you to make several different types of pie without making one large pie of each flavor. For our Thanksgiving we have specific pies that we have to buy.....you know, everyone has their favorite. And we always have so much pie leftover. This will solve that problem. The author, Dani Cones, was on Martha Stewart on October 3rd. Here is that Video She also shares the recipe for her peach pie that she makes in a muffin tin. Bite sized pies are great because you can sample more than one kind of pie and not over due it. Now I'm sure you're going to want to purchase the book so here is a link to Amazon.com where you can pick up a copy. I'm getting one!
This is the year that you tackle the project you've been wanting to do----making pies.... Let's do it together.....Yeah, You've Got This!
