Serves 4 Pockets | Prep Time | Cook Time


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

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)

Pairs Well With


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.

As a kid my mom used to make these as well as pizza versions using white bread, pizza sauce and mozarella (adding favorite toppings/fillings when desired). Loved our little sandwich maker!
