Jenny Flake, from over at Picky Palate, is the most adorable woman. She’s talented, successful, a super-mom and has great taste and if you haven’t read her blog do yourself a favour and head on over. In this post I’m going to show you one of her holiday recipes.
Jenny, if you ever come across this post I want to thank you for inspiring not only good cooking but great blog design. Best of luck!
1 refrigerated pie crust, thawed
14 Hershey Kisses of choice, I used Mint Truffle today
1 egg white whisked with 1 Tbsp water
Powdered sugar for dusting
“Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Roll out pie dough onto a lightly floured counter top.
Place 10 kisses around the edges of pie dough, about 2 1/2 inches apart.
Take a knive and cut a 2 1/2-3 inch circle around kiss.
Fold half of pie dough around top of dough and pinch edge around top of kiss. Now, fold up both sides of remaining dough up to the tip of the kiss pinching edge.
Now press together edges and form criss cross.
* *Continue cutting dough around kisses until all dough is used up. I got about 14 rounds cut when I re-rolled my scraps **
Brush all little pies with an egg white wash then sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake for 20-28 minutes or until little pies are golden.
Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
Dust each with powdered sugar and serve.”
