Hey guys it me Samantha again! Today I wanted to tell you about a new cookbook I received called Easy As Pie Pops by Andrea Smetona. The book has really cool smart and cute ideas for baking pies as little pops on sticks!
My favorite pie pops from the book are the Caramel Apple, the Raspberry Whip, and the Strawberry Limeade(that is in the pictures here). I think the pie crust was pretty easy to make and its really fun to roll out the dough. I love chopping things, so chopping the strawberries was fun too. The strawberry lime filling is sweet and very flavorful and I told my mom I want to make that again as a filling for a cake or as a topping for cupcakes. I think my mom will like that idea because she couldn’t stop eating the filling with a spoon!
This is a fun cookbook to get. Try it!
Surprise!!! One lucky winner gets one of these cookbooks for free from meeeeee!
Hi, its my turn now (Colleen), Samantha totally enjoyed receiving this cookbook for review. She flipped through all the pages, picked a few she wanted to make right away and got to work. The book is full of sweet and savory pie pops as well as a number of non pie pop recipes. In addition to making pie pops, Samantha also made the above recipe as a small pie – both were delicious.
Easy As Pie Pops is easy to understand and I have to say that the pie crust recipe is a really good one! The pie crust recipe produced a pie crust exactly as a pie crust should be – light and flakey, mmmm! I only wish the recipe explained how thin or thick to roll the dough for the pops – Samantha followed the recipe but there was no mention of that. In hindsight, she/we definitely should have rolle it thinner – next time!
I have always thought a kitchen is filled with love – what goes on in it from something as simple as packing lunch for your kids to baking for others to holiday baking and dinners to my favorite – cooking with my kids! Its appropriate this post is going up on Valentines Day…Cooking for or with those you love is priceless! Happy Valentines Day!
