. Yep, you betcha!
I have another Lucky Leaf Pie Filling giveaway! And just in time for Valentine's Day. I'm always thinking of you guys. How nice of me ☺
You may have caught my previous Lucky Leaf Pie Filling giveaway and fortunate for me, Lucky Leaf tapped me on my shoulder to do a second one! And because giveaways are simply exciting [we gotta switch it up every now and then around here, right?] and Lucky Leaf Pie Fillings are just so dang scrumptious, there was no way I was passing this up.
Like before, Lucky Leaf sent me a lovely package filled with three pie fillings [strawberry, blueberry, and apple], three recipe cards, a bakery bag, and a Rachel Ray 6-cup Muffin Pan. Uh huh, it was an awesome gift I got in the mail.
One of the recipes cards I received was for Mini Pies and I opted for this choice because 1) pies are my absolute fav to eat and make and 2) my wonderful friend was having a Super Bowl party with some fancy homemade dishes. Remember the gourmet cook I mentioned in a prior post? Well it only seemed fitting to add to her spread with something that deserved to accompany her gourmet-ness, and lattice-crust pies are always a winner. At least in my book. Oh, and don't forget that these would be the most perfect Valentine's Day dessert. Eh, eh?!
Anywho, I must say these pies went over rather well! The recipe only made a dozen but there wasn't a crumb left in the house by the end of the night. That's a good sign, right?
I of course chose to make a homemade [super easy] buttery pie crust and filled each with the delectable Lucky Leaf Pie Filling. I decided on making Strawberry and Blueberry Mini pies simply for variety but the colors also went with the teams playing in the big game [i.e., red for the Niners and purple for the Ravens]. Like that?! Then I topped the fillings with a fun lattice top and voila, mini fruit pies for everyone!
So enough chatting and let's get to this giveaway, shall we?! Let's see what one lucky reader will win:
1 can of Lucky Leaf Pie Filling
1 recipe card
Festive muffin cup papers
1 bakery bagFacebook, Pinterest, and/or Twitter, and leave separate comments telling me you did so. The giveaway will be open until Saturday, February 23, so get commentin'! And don't forget to spread the word! .
- I chose to make a homemade pie crust, but if you're in a complete bind for time, feel free to use store bought crust.
Pie Crust from A Passion for Baking
All Butter Pie Crust:
3 c. all purpose flour
2 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. unsalted butter, cut into chunks
1/2 c. butter-flavored shortening, cut into chunks
1 large egg
4 to 8 tbsp. ice water
1 tbsp. lemon juice
- For crust, place flour in food processor. Add sugar and salt and process 20 seconds to combine. Add chunks of butter and shortening and pulse to break up butter until mixture looks crumbly
- Add egg and drizzle ice water and lemon juice on top. Turn on food processor for 15 seconds until mixture more or less holds together.
- Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface and knead very gently for a few seconds to smooth out dough. Divide dough ball in half, pat each ball into disks, and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill dough for 1 hour or overnight before using.
- Refer to the Lucky Leaf Baby Pies Recipe for the assembly instructions.
