Lattice Pocket Pies




In August, I received an email from Wm-Sonoma notifying me of free shipping. Do you think they knew it was my birthday ;-)

I spied a $10 item was just too cute to resist. This is an item that I will use on a regular basis, since I truly LOVE it!  It even met my three requirements to bring another gadget into this house.

CUTE!
FREE SHIPPING!
EASY!

You will find this neat little gadget on the Wm-Sonoma website.
The pie mold includes a recipe for pie dough, but I had leftover puff pastry on hand, and rolled it on a flour board to about 1/16".

The recipe posted on the box calls for pie filling, but instead I mixed some fresh, chopped fruit with peach/ginger jam and a little cornstarch.

Here is the lattice and solid sides of the press.


The cut out shapes.


I used chopped Sweet White Nectarine and Georgia Peaches in the pie well before putting the lattice top on it.  


Add the lattice dough and press down to seal and crimp edges
of the pie.


  Brush the top with egg wash and sprinkle sanding sugar.


The Basics:

1)  Cut out shapes of dough
2) Set one piece of dough on cutter and add filling. Brush edges
with egg wash.
3)  Top with another piece of dough and press down to seal and crimp edges of pie.
4) Freeze pies for 30 minutes before baking.
5)  Bake pies at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.

If you want to make it SUPER EASY, you can use use store bought pie dough and canned pie filling.



Bon Appetit!

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Looks great! I've made them in camp for the kids to try! They have hearts and stars, too. Joe should have a heart pie for Valentine's!

  5. Debbie, your pictures are indeed beautiful. And while I had no intention of buying another gadget, I see no way out of it. I want it.

    And I would love to add Kiki to the wish list.
