While meandering through the aisles of my local Target recently I came across this delightful pocket pie mold by Nordic Ware. Normally, I try to avoid too many kitchen gadgets – after all who has the room to store all of them? – but I have to admit that this one proved too tempting for me! I already had in mind the idea to create a pocket pie recipe for the September issue of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll and this was just the handy tool I needed to make it a cinch.
You know how sometimes you see these things in the store and you think “oh! ah!” but you get them home and they are kinda a dud? Happily I can tell you that this pie mold is terrific!! It was super easy to use and it really did create PERFECT pocket pies!! So I give it two thumbs up! It looks like they are selling out on-line but hopefully you can still find one in your local store. It is a great tool to have if like me you are obsessed with little pies.
Check out the recipe in the September issue!
I recently bought another one from a different store – different shape… I know, I know hardly a valid excuse! – and will let you know how that one works. I haven’t tried it yet. Maybe this time I’ll create a savory recipe to share with you!
By the way, I do not receive anything from Target or Nordic Ware for my opinions 🙂
