So I bought some of this a few weeks ago and I've been procrastinating over what to make with it - until tonight.

I've been wanting to try making mini-pies for a while and since I finally remembered to snag some Cream of Tomato at the grocery, I figured tonight would be a good night to try it out.

Here's what I ended up with:

The first 3 clock-wise are "meat pies". The filling is the Morningstar "meat", some mixed veg and Cream O' Tomato thrown in, simmered for about 10 minutes in medium-high. The dough is really plain pie dough, just flour, water and butter (actually I used margarine o_o). The 'C' is cut for my boyfriend :3

The top left one (the ugly one) is actually some left over anko I wanted to use up. I haven't tried it yet but I'll let you know how that one came out. I also had some of the 'meat' filling left, which I'm going to stuff into onigiri tomorrow when I'm replenishing my freezer stash.

Re: PIE!

In case you were wondering, yes most of my improvised recipes involve me seeing what I have and throwing what seems like a reasonable portion into a pot and turn the heat up. I'm not that creative...

Re: PIE!

That is generally the way I operate as well. What I cook always depends on what is in the fridge/cabinets and what sounds good to me (or sometimes my husband).
