EASY PIE POCKETS (WITH SANDWICH MAKER)

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 4 Pockets
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • Your favorite pie filling

Directions

  • 1. Mix shortening, flour and salt together with fork or pastry blender until very crumbly. Add as much cold water as needed to hold together, and mix lightly with fork.
  • 2. Divide dough in two pieces and roll, one at a time, to the size of Sandwich Maker surface. Gently place on pre-heated surface.
  • 3. Spoon one tablespoon or so of fruit/pie filling into each pocket. Cover with second piece of dough. Close and latch Sandwich Maker and let cook until crust is golden brown.
  • 4. Gently remove with spatula (the crusts break/crumble easily)

Notes

My mom used to make something like this for my sisters and I when we were kids. She used the Sandwich Maker we had, and used bread instead of pie crust, I think. I think these would be great warm topped with ice cream, or as a take-along for a picnic. I've even frozen some and reheated them in the oven later.
