Lillian loves to cook. Last Friday, she saw a picture of "hand pies" in a Martha Stewart magazine.
Martha's version starts with homemade pie crust and a fresh fruit filling. Delicious, I'm sure. But, like most-things-Martha -- I always think WHO'S GOT THAT KIND OF TIME???
Honestly, Lilly is only 4. I can get away with simplifying the recipe just a little.
I'm thinking a can of pie filling, with some refrigerated pie crust.
But, as it turns out, I didn't have either of those things on hand..
Looking in the frig -- I found a can of REFRIGERATED BISCUITS..Yippee Kayee...
Rachael Ray has made a fortune with her "30-Minutes or Less" philosophy. I could write a cookbook called, "Never More than 10 minutes".
Lilly was delighted with our short-cut version of hand pies. She loved rolling out the dough. She loved spreading the filling, and pinching the edges. The last step was sprinkling with cinnamon sugar....
Remember -- YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH JAM.
