Cutie Pies



I love pie. I especially love mini pies. They're like cupcake's little cousins.

These lil' single serve goodies are some that I made with an old chocolate cream pie recipe; with cornstarch and milk and cocoa and flour and all that - in a double boiler. I make my own pie crust also - it's the only way! I find that, usually, a typical (not deep dish) pie filling recipe makes a dozen mini pies (about 1/3 cup size pies.)

I didn't have cream to make whipped cream, so I put cool whip on them. The real thing would be so much better. Or at least, Redi Whip.

So, um, these are adorable and sound yummy! But, how come you didn't bring me some, sweetie pie? You know your daddy loves his sweets!

I haven't got them over to you yet. :)

Um, how come you didn't bring some out to me? I'm three hours earlier, here. You could've had 'em out by dinnertime. *pouts* and I would've forgiven you for using fake cream.

Sus - I would love to bring some to you, if I possibly could. Do they let you take food on airplanes these days? ;)
