I love to play with my kitchen toys. Cookie cutters make great shaped potatoes.
Apple crisp baked in a pumpkin shaped dish.
Nut molds used to make cookies. (King Arthur)
Marigene thinks these are a royal pain, but I didn't mind doing it, and they tasted good. I used a shortbread recipe, and filled them with apricot or nutella.
I will do a post on them in November.
You can cut your biscuits with cookie cutters and your butter pats too.
Individual mac and cheese in little leaf casseroles.
Or Super size it!
Letter shaped cookie cutters so you can label your food in case you forget what you made! :)
My friend Carol, There's Always Thyme to Cook, sent me these cutters from WSonoma a few years ago. I have been using them to decorate pies ever since then!
So today instead of just decorating the pie, I covered the whole top with leaves.
Peel and slice your apples, I used 5 and a half cups, and used 5 different varieties of apples. Fill the bottom crust.
Cut your shapes and start from the bottom going around slightly overlapping. If you roll too thick, you will have gummy crust, too thin, and they fall apart.
Time consuming, but not that bad!
I brushed some of the leaves with egg wash so I would get shades.
Ready to serve...
I had some left over dough and apples, so I made some mini pies.
I hope you have a wonderful Fall weekend. The weather here has been beautiful, still warm and everything is green. We haven't had a frost yet, and my oil bill is happy about that!
