We've all seen the individual cake slices and boxes that are so cute together. But cake doesn't go with Thanksgiving...does it? I didn't think so. What does go with Thanksgiving? Well, I'm pretty sure the title gave it away, but you woulda guessed it anyway. PIES! I was introduced to the cutest little individual pie cutters from Williams Sonoma from Judy at work (thanks Jude!). And, of course, they needed their own little boxes to go with them.
Here's a little tutorial on how to make the pies. After you make your own pie crust (the box for this has a recipe for crust that is actually better in this setting than any other fantastic pie crust recipe you have - believe me, I've tried both! The one on the box is the right consistency and dryness so that it doesn't stick to the mold when you cut it out), press the mold onto the rolled out crust like so...
Then simply put a bottom and a top into the mold and put in the apple pie filling you canned when I posted that recipe. What?! You didn't can 32 quarts of apple pie filling to use for things like this? Shame on you. Brush edges with egg wash, and close mold to seal crust together.
Brush tops with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar. Then, bake for about 20 minutes in 400 degree oven.
Lay down some wax paper so you don't ruin the paper box and stick that baby in!
Decorate with some cute ribbon, and, if you're better than me, make a cute tag to go with it to say thanks this Thanksgiving!
As always, here is an svg for you to use in your quest for pie giving.
