S'mores Mini Pies
One thing I really love about the seasons is the foods that go with them. Just as pumpkin makes you think of fall, s'mores scream summer!
Eating s'mores makes me so happy. I love the combination of chocolate, marshmallow and graham crackers. While a s'more in it's pure form is truly amazing, I really love to experiment with all of the different s'more recipes I see all over the web.
These little pies are amazing! They are crispy on the outside and chocolatey and gooey on the inside. Exactly how a s'more should be. They are best warm from the oven but they are also yummy at room temperature.
While these are definitely easy to make, they are a bit time consuming since you have to fill and fold one pie at a time. You may be tempted to add extra filling but don't! If you put in too much filling it will burst out of the pie as it bakes.
This is a recipe from Monster Mama, however the recipe below is my slightly adapted version.
I also want to add that I used this fun little gadget to cut my dough circles and fold over my little pies. But you can use anything with a circle shape to cut your dough. A glass works well.
S'mores Mini Pies
1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie dough
1/2 c marshmallow creme
2 tbsp cream cheese, soft
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 c choc chips
1/2 c graham crackers (about 8 cracker squares, finely crushed)
1/4 c sugar
3 tbsp butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together ingredients for crumb mix and set aside. Mix filling ingredients in a bowl.
Cut dough into circles using a round cookie cutter or glass. Brush both sides of dough circles with melted butter and dip in crumb mixture. Place a scant tablespoon of filling in center of each round. Fold dough in half and press with a fork to seal. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes until brown.
