Introduction: Quick Pi Pie Pockets
All this talk of pie had me craving a piece of apple pie. Since I like portable eats, I made pie pockets.
I've never attempted any type of fruit pie before. . . so I cheated! It took under 45 minutes from craving to consuming this most pleasant treat!
Feel free to make delicious flaky crusts and unique pie fillings from scratch.
Step 1: Cheating Ingredients
The ingredients I used are:
2 Pre-made rolled Pie Crusts
1 21oz. can of Pie Filling (apple in this case)
Step 2: Crusts
Lightly dust the work surface with flour.
Unroll first one pie dough. Stack the other atop the first and line up the edges.
Use a pizza cutter to cut the pie dough into 8 equal pieces.
Step 3: Filling
I found the pieces of apple in my canned pie filling were too large to comfortably fit the triangle dough. I cubed the slices of apple and it made for a much better fit.
If making your own filling, chop the fruit into small enough chunks.
Pull apart the two pieces of dough.
Place about 2 tablespoons of filling in the center of one triangle and place the other on top.
Gently close the dough together, making sure to have a good seal.
Use a fork to pinch the sides together, this allows for a more uniform look.
Cut a few vent hole into the top, or the sign of Pi as I did.
Step 4: Pan
Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Place finished pie pockets onto the cookie sheet.
Bake at 450 degree for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 5: Fini
Let cool, and place artfully onto a round plate.
There you have them, Quick Pi Pie Pockets!
