My sister sent me this recipe awhile back and I couldn't wait to try it. I love s'mores, and baking them into a mini pie sounded just about perfect...and it was. It soooo was.
Just be warned though, these are pretty time consuming to put together (at least to someone like me, whose idea of baking is mixing together a box of cookie mix). Brushing the butter onto each individual round, then covering each side in the gram cracker mixture can be a bit slow going, but it was totally worth it.
Unfortunately when I was making my grocery list, I forgot to add Gram Crackers to it. I almost didn't make this till I noticed I had some chocolate chip Teddy Grahams in the cabinet. Jesse wasn't too happy about it, but I pounded what was left in the box into tiny little crumbs and used that instead. Worked out pretty well, if I do say so myself! After taking his first bite of one of these pies, Jesse quickly forgave me :)
So thanks again Chels for another yummy recipe! Keep 'em comin'!
'Mini S'more Pies'
Source: Betty Crocker
1 box refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 cup marshmallow Fluff
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened (1 oz)
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. Heat oven to 425. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
2. Unroll pie crusts. With 3-inch round cutter (I used the top of a drinking glass), cut 8 rounds from each crust. In small shallow bowl, mix cracker crumbs and 1/4 cup sugar. Brush both sides of pie crust rounds with butter; dip into crumb mixture to coat. Place 8 coated pie crust rounds on cookie sheet.
3. Stir together filling ingredients. Spoon about 1 heaping tablespoon filling in center of each of the 8 rounds. Place remaining pie crust rounds on top of the filling on each. Pinch edges to seal.
4. Bake 9 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or at room temperature. Store covered in refrigerator.
