When I received my last Williams Sonoma catalogue, I saw these pie molds.
And I thought, how great would those be. A pie is too large... to many leftovers. And with these molds, you wouldn't need a small pie plate.
So I wanted to experiment and see how easy they are to use and how nice does the pie look.
Just using a store bought pie crust, use the outside of the pie mold to cut the pie crust.
Next open the pie mold and place the heart shaped pie crust in the bottom of the mold.
Spoon some pie filling. I used two large tablespoons of cherry pie filling.
Cover with the other pie crust topping.
Fold over mold and crimp the edges. I brushed with an egg wash and sprinkled with sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.
The mold came out very cute.
And the perfect size for dessert. Williams Sonoma also sells a star pie mold.
Okay, everyone is invited for pie.... Blueberry, Apple, Cherry, Peach and Blackberry. Your choice.
P.S. I apologize for the pictures... I used my iPhone and they look kind of dark.
