So, after being gone all last week, this has been catch up on the house week. Mostly laundry actually. Man, who knew that a weeks worth of laundry from 5 people could be so daunting. Yikes!! But I am kind of behind on my cooking and baking as well since I've been gone and cleaning.
How many times has someone spotted excess, overripe or just unused bananas in your kitchen and said, “uh-oh, looks like it’s time to make banana bread!” — as if the only things possible to do with a banana are eat it or turn it into bread? Well we say “no more.”
I’ve been in a mini-mood lately when it comes to baking and these bite-sized pies met my big craving. They are really, really easy. Let me show ya. Of course, it didn’t hurt that I used ready to roll refrigerated pie crust. It comes two to a box and if you roll each round pie crust a little bit thinner with a rolling pin, you can get 24 mini pumpkin-shaped pie crusts out of them.
Oh baby. Oh yes. You can have your dough and eat it too.
Since one half of the blue-eyed baking squad is currently blogging from waaaay across the pond in London, we figured we'd bake you lovely duckies a British treat. Shortbread. Millionaire's shortbread (ooooh aaaah). Don't get too excited. There's no money in this crumbly deliciousness.
I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house. I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly. But, I have many friends with daughters in the Girl Scouts, and the Thin Mints are just so yummy. My 7-year-old didn’t even realize there was any other flavor of Girl Scout cookies than Thin Mints.
